Would you still be suicidal if you woke up a multi billionaire tomorrow?

Would I be inclined to live longer? Absolutely. Being able to fix at least SOME of the issues certainly wouldn't hurt. I may not be living in extreme poverty, but being able to spend over 20000$ on surgeries still isn't much of an option for me, so this would obviously be a huge help. That being said, "multi billionaire" would be a severe overkill, I never saw the appeal of owning huge mansions or crap like that and considering how stingy I generally am, even a fraction of this would suffice to keep me afloat. I'd be perfectly fine with using like 99% of that wealth to help others instead. Well, one can always dream.

That being said, I'd still be suicidal. There are some things you cannot buy or fix by just throwing money at them. The final moment would definitely come at a later date and perhaps this bonus time would allow me to find love etc. and give me a good reason to stay around ... but no, simply waking up with a lot of money wouldn't be a panaceum to all my problems, it'd just give me a better shot at fixing 'em.

Probably not. I'm a firm believer that money can buy you anything. If you woke up a billionaire, you can hire experienced investors to invest some of your money into promising investment ventured. Over time, you'll learn how to evaluate business opportunities and you'll keep your money flowing. Before you know it, you'll have advisers and business partners, which you'll need. Great leaders are people with great advisers.

You can also use the rest of your money for therapy. You probably won't have to work for a while, so you can focus entirely on your mental well-being. You can also hire a life coach and work on your physical well-being.

In other words, yes. Money can buy you a ticket out of suicidal ideation.

money would do nothing for me; it wont change anything related to who i've lost or will lose in the future. at this point in my life i am only here because of the love i see in my dogs eyes when she looks at me. money will only create a false reality bringing people into my life who would otherwise not have anything to do with me; another lie that i want no part of.

Yes... lmfao. What kind of question is this?

Unless, somehow I could actually get a time machine then I would definitely go back in time, change things and I'd be better.

Would I still ctb? Yes. Would I wait a few more years? Maybe, maybe not. Depends if this money could buy me a miracle.

If anything the money would make it easier for me to ctb. I could pay of all my loans and medical bills, make sure the rest goes to my family, and buy a one way ticket to Europe. My method would likely change as the only thing really stopping me is not wanting my mother to find me. If I were able to leave the country and ensure that I just “vanish”, it would be so easy.

I'd be suicidal, but I wouldn't kill myself anytime soon. Or maybe I would, because I'd have easy access to N lol

Even half a million would be enough for me to live out a natural life. Work and money and housing are pretty much my entire reasons for CTB.

It'd make my life more comfortable but I'd still be empty. So idk. It really doesn't matter. As I always say I find it pointless to bother myself with what ifs.

I would still be suicidal but I would postpone it for ten years. 50 instead 40.

The title question and the post question are phrased in opposite ways so when people answer just yes or no I don’t know which they mean and it’s driving me crazy!

I would live longer and throw money at my health problems but ultimately I don’t think I’d get anywhere so I’d probably still CTB within a year or so.

For a time, no. Most of my stress comes from work and other people. Money solves the first problem instantly. To address the second problem, I would hire a good lawyer, bodyguard, personal assistant, and accountant to keep begging family members, fraudsters, and other scum away. Still, I cannot run from my head and my past - eventually the suicidal feelings would come back.

No, I'd become a recluse and never speak to anybody else ever again... after I get married (hopefully not due to being rich, I'd want something real).

Maybe I'd buy a castle in Ireland, kind of like Enya's home.

Yes, I'd postpone my suicide and see what it's like to live the good life. Fast cars, travelling, nice houses etc. I'd also enjoy sharing the money around with family and seeing them happy.

How about we try the billionaire thing out a while and get back to you? That sounds like a plan.

Yes and no. On the one hand, it'd make my life a hell of a lot easier, I could live fully independently and not deal with anyone (including discrimination), have my own place, fully transition socially and legally, live somewhere out in the country secluded, spend the rest of my days as female, enjoy the simple things, and never ever have to worry about money again. That in itself could greatly take away my suicidal depression. However, I work for a lavish employer near the top of a tower, and now have my own car. I'm climbing back up the socioeconomic spectrum and am slowly getting out of poverty. It feels good, especially with making money again, but I've noticed I still suffer from suicidal ideation from time to time regardless. My depression and PTSD will still flare up whenever they want to. Being a billionaire and having loads of wealth would definitely fix lots of things in my life, but not everything. It won't completely cure my mental illnesses, or give me back all the years I lost and missed out on not being me. It also won't remove all the pain and psycholocial damage/abuse I've endured over the years for being trans.

I'd stay alive long enough to throw a shit load of money in the crap UK mental health system, ensure my family are set up for life via bank accounts, find a island buy a house, live a year make up for the hell Ive been through then CTB.

Money can't buy happiness nor can it erase memories,.

Oh yeah, I would then bang many escorts!
Why do you and others have to talk like this? Do you think this is a man-only forum? Do you think women like being talked about that way? Do you think just because you have been disappointed by life that gives you the right to buy women's bodies? I will put you on ignore now which is sad because I like your contributions otherwise. And I'm sick of having to always see this stuff creeping into normal threads. I will just have to ignore people who do this one by one, but it's depressing.

Now I'm sure you will get people leaping to your defense, including some women. I don't care.
