I had an aunt go off out of state and OD on meds, a cousin that put a rifle in his mouth and shot himself, and a kid that was the son of friends who hung himself at only 22. I went to his funeral. You could make out the rope mark on his neck a little. It was tough. He was a sweet kid.

My sister in law took an overdose of insulin. She was type 1 diabetic. I also had a good friend pass away. I don't know how, but he had a really bad alcohol problem. I still miss him, and feel I failed him.

Are we talking about both successful and unsuccessful attempts or just those that actually completed it? If unsuccessful then other than myself only one person. If successful then none.

I've been to 4 suicide funerals. 3 were from the same family and within a 2 year period. The first one set off the chain. First the daughter went, then the mother, then the father.

I don't know anyone in family or friends that committed suicide.

Worried I'll set off the chain with my family, inherited all their mental illness. Feel like I was engineered to be fucked up
