I'm 15, and really, there is nothing ALL THAT WRONG with my life. My parents are ok, I have some friends. But I am so desperate. I can't sleep at night, I've stopped all the activities I used to like. I dropped out of school, I was failing anyways because I couldn't find the strength to open schoolbooks. I used to be good at school. I didn't cry and then start laughing out of nowhere everyday. For no reason. And yet I seem so happy to everyone, I am happy and jumpy and energetic and talk like a train around people. Then I come home and just want to die. I harm myself in any way I know. I used to cut myself but then my parents found out- I'm seeing a psychologist now. I bang my wrists against hard surfaces. I smoke just because I know it's bad for me. I drink every time I can and end up doing stupid things. I want to kill myself so bad, and yet I don't want to die. Death scares me. I don't believe in god. I dont believe in the existence of love. I don't believe in people. Some days I'm just crazy energetic and some others I lie in bed all the time, hugging my pillow and crying for all of it to go away. My moods are crazy. One second I'll just start crying with no reason, or get the urge to call my frineds to go out. It all hurts so bad.
Why should I want to live?
What is the REAL reason for suicide to be wrong?
What if there's nothing to live for?
I just want to drink and **** and do drugs and kill my brain and pretend I'm happy.
In an odd way I know how you feel. When I'm around people I'm fine.When I'm around my parents or my friends I'm smiling and laughing, but if you get me alone I'm terrible. I used to be okay being by myself, but now I really don't trust myself anymore alone. I used to cut too, my parents found out but never did anything for it. They just kinda hoped it would go away and it got easier because I started writing as an outlet, but i still get those urges to do it. I also dig my nails into the palms of my hands just to stop the cutting urge.
I can't realy answer why you would want to live. Everyone's life is different hun, and people have different reasons for living; family, friends, kids, their dog haha.
I would say the reason why suicide is wrong is because you're taking yourself away from people that love you. Not because it may be "wrong in the eyes of god" but because of the relationships we make throughout our life.
I hope I helped and if you ever wanna talk just let me know :]
You really need to get in to see your family doctor and get a referral, you don't need to feel the way you are. You have a disorder which is messing with your brain chemicals and you more then likely will need meds to control it, I've been there, even last summer, I went to my local hospital and got immediate help. The sooner you get help the better.
Suicide is a permanent solution for a temporary problem. Talk to your folks, take down the happy happy gaurd and let them know what's going on. You can feel better. I've had those mood swings for years, and I finally got properly diagnosed in Aug. What you have is pretty serious, so do get help a.s.a.p.
Hang in there.
Can I ask you what you've been diagnosed with? You don't need to answer if it's too personal. My psychologist is just doing some talking right now, and he said we're gonna start some tests next time, but I don't think they are searching for mental disorders.
Fact is that I know the people that love me would be better off without me.
I've started dragging my nails down my thighs. I hate the scars, and scratching, burning or banging don't leave any.
I don't really believe in god, never did. But I so wish I did.
Well, I wasn't really telling you believe in God and I did read above that you said you didn't. That was why I put it into quotations cause I've heard that many times and I wasn't sure if you had also.
If they wanted you gone, they wouldn't love you. So if you know they love you, why would you think they would want you gone?
It isn't that they necessarily want me gone. Just that they'd be better off without me. Probably happier after a while of grieving.
It's just that I have this enormous urge to just slice through my veins. I'm scared of death though. But I know that one day it wont be enough to hold me back. I think I might have a personality disorder. I don't think my psychologist will diagnose me with one though, he looks more like a conversational one. I need more help than that.
Doll, if you believe that your psychologist is not helping you, you should find another one.You should find one that makes you happy and if you really think that something is wrong you should see a psychiatrist. I would advise you to see one actually so that you can actually be diagnosed and get medication for the obvious depression you are experiencing.
And I've had that urge before. Just to go into my kitchen, get a knife and just go with it. But what holds me back is the people around me. Sometimes I think they may not be enough, but I hope they will be.
suicide is a big problem it could kill you it might not.............dont think about dieing fix your life .im at rock bottom because i tryed to kill my self and it didnt work ..........1 out of 20 actually die from suicide.....suicide creates memories that no one wants to remember........and its permnet........i was a cutter and if you could see what i did to my arm and wristes you would think twice about all this **** your talking...........you think you friend and familys will not miss you that is BULL!!!............THATS ALL THEY WILL THINK ABOUT IS YOU...and what they feel about thems selfs is that they ****** up your life and they feel like there a bad person for not knowing it was that bad.....just think if you dont die and you end up with a horriable disablity like me...... my right hand dose not work like it did before i can do **** with it.........so i havent got a job or my life back yet...its been 4 years and i havent done nothing with my self im 27 my suicide was when i was 23............and not to mention the 3 years i had to live i severe pain.and that just makes you want to do it again...but im smarter then that now and i swear i will nevr do it again...it not worth it kid.........
I'm sorry about your hand. And i don't say that they won't miss me, just that it would be better for them without me. I'm working on this suicide thing with my psychologist right now. And maybe yes, they are bad people, for never noticing just how low I've fallen.
Sorry I didn't answer you earlier, I've been at a conference for the last 4 days.
I was diagnosed Bipolar Spectrum or BP2, they still aren't sure which. My moods went up and down like a swing, and it was hourly. I was suicidal for days at a time, but I knew I didn't want to die, but it was like a fixation. When I went into hospital, I was seriously anxious AND suicidal at the same time. It was physically painful to feel that way. Though I was shocked(understatement) with the diagnosis, I'm calmer, happier and more centered then I have been in over 10yrs. I was diagnosed at 16 but because I had such a bad psychiatrist, who was only one of two in my home town, I didn't believe him. He later lost his license due to malpractise, and I was one of the complainents, due to being massively overly medicated. So I was manic from the age of 18-29yrs old. I was in different levels of depression even with meds after that. I'm 40 now, and am only finding peace in my life. The meds work and I have a life :)
I hate seeing folks whom are suffering so badly, knowing that there is help out there and feeling better is a possibility. Personally, a psychologist did nothing for me. My issues are chemical in nature, and all the talking in the world won't keep me balanced. Though it's great to have support in order to be part of your own wellness, I got that through my psychiatrist and a support group.
I tried to commit suicide when I was 28 and I almost suceeded. This act traumatized the few folks in my life. I isolated myself and thought no one would miss me. I was very wrong in every way. I actually lost a couple of friends because of my attempt because they were so hurt, and I understand why. So please, suicide is no way to go. It does get better, I'm living proof that it can.
I'm feeling a bit better lately- well actually I've been kind of...hysterical. But still...suicide thoughts have reduced a lot, and although I get kind of scared by myself lately (I feel like I'm high on something: I started giggling when I saw this woman die in my grandma's hospital room), I guess it's better. My psych says that he want's to concentrate on my self-defense mechanisms and not in finding out if I fit a label. One side of me thinks he's right, but I have this feeling that I need a cure now, and we can work on the deeper mechanisms later, because I don't know how much longer I'll be willing to fight. I told him that and we are going to start doing some tests, like free association and Rorscach's.
Is this how you get diagnosed with something? through these kind of tests or by analysing sympthoms? Through which procedures did you get diagnosed? (No need to answer if it's too personal, again. Sorry if I ask these kind of questions, I just want to understand what's happening)
To tell you the truth i know how you feel. I spent a whole year taking drugs drinking and having sex with people who didnt care about me. even after treatment i still can sit on my own and wish to god that I would die. Hope that the next day when i get out of bed and leave the house that i get hit my car and end it all. I get so depressed that i convince myself that my friends dont like me because I am the sad depressed friend which is ******** and then when i am around that them i act sad and pathetic because I have done my own headin. Yourself is your worst enemy
What you are describing are common symptoms of all forms of bipolar. Innapropriate giggling and feeling high is called Hypomania. It's odd your doctor hasn't followed through the standard DSM-IVr, which has a huge list of criteria for disorders. Is s/he a psychiatrist or psychologist? I would honestly get a second opinion. Until you get a diagnosis, you aren't going to be properly medically treated. Mood disorders though called mental disorders, are generally caused by chemical imbalances. There are no cures, but you can get stable. It's not easy, I get frustrated, for a couple of days I'll be just fine, then I might get a bit of hypo then my moods drop the next day, but I'm bouncing back from the depressive episode faster. The meds I'm on are a cocktail, but they work better then when I was only on two when I was diagnosed solely with depression. It's not always fun, but I'm an active participant in my path of wellness. You can too!
hello missmess ,.......can i just say im so sorry to hear you are in so much pain

I have a little different story to tell. I actually tried to commit suicide because I truly thought everyone would be better off without me. Boy did I get a shock? I come from a large family 3 siblings and all are married and all have children as I myself do. Anyway, as a result of my suicide attempt, my dad called me and told me if I was doing this for attention, to go ahead because he would not bear the burden of carrying the guilt of his child commiting suicide because he didn't do anything wrong. The problem with all of this is that I never accused anyone of doing anything wrong. I have not gone thru my life as an attention seeker and I needed my family for support. So, if you have your family for support, give them some credit and break down and confide in them. The family I thought I had for support is now not speaking to me ironically, when I need them the most. So, if you still have family around and they are somewhat sympathetic to what you are going thru, then take the chance and rely on them for help. Also, get in touch with a psychiatrist not a psychologist. You really need help and there is actual help for your very real problems! You can feel "normal" again!
As much as your story seems a nice, happy-ending one, really, I would never commit suicide to gain attention. I don't need that kind of attention. I hate it when people see my problems, I have acted out through all my life so that no one would see how I actually felt. I hate having people tell me that it's all right or talk about my problems, I can't stand it. If I were to kill myself I would rather no one noticed. I can't go see a psychiatrist because that would involve telling my parents, and they have already opposed to it in the past because they don't want to see that there is actually something wrong with me. I won't talk to my parents, it just can't work. My father is convinced he could never possibly be wrong and my mother is too scared to see that I have a problem. It would bring to nothing if not more issues.
I am sorry for all your inner problems, many that need to be worked thru probably with the psychologist ur seeing...but I agree u also need to see a psychiatrist dear, they are really the only ones that can diagnos u and give you medication, the medication will make you look at life alot different than u do now.
Try talking to your parents honestly and tell them everything ur feeling u need to get them to fully understand the extent of your illness.
However if that doesn't work and in your state u need them for a referral than I would suggest go to the ER...surely there u could get a psych consult when u make them aware of your issues and thoughts of suicide!!
goodluck honey...keep searching for your answers, do not give up on yourself
i didn't read anyone's response's...so it may be someone has already answered one of your questions better than i will...but you said "what real reason can suicide be wrong..."
the reason is because someday, whether it be tomorrow or 10 years from now, you will be extremely thankful to be alive. i didn't understand it when i was 15, but i'm starting to now. i'm 24 and things are starting to make more sense. i had a good friend die when i was your age. i look back on the past 9 years and wonder how it's fair i get to live and he didn't...especially since he probably enjoyed life more than me. and then i think how easy life really can end and how fast time really does pass...and it makes me thankful to have lived, no matter how painful it can be sometimes.
suicide is wrong because i have no doubt that very very very few people who commit suicide would have made the same decision if they knew how they would feel later on in their life. anyway, this is obviously something you should mention to your therapist.
i was feeling like **** tell i was reading storys from you all and i see we are all not alone in this there are verey mean of us with simerly problems so in steed of killing our selves why dont we start a club get to know each othere talk and work to gether to get through this as there is so many great places in this world we could all travel see and do many great thing to help keep our minds of this i am willing to talk openly with any one about any thing as we as people that sufer from this things are either going to have to take the steeps to work trough it or the goverments of the world are going to have to pass laws to make as all orgen doners as its crazzy we are all doing thing that over time are going to take great tolls on what were once great orgens that some one that wants life could have
Hello. I was reading your discussion n just wanted to tell you that suicide is not going to solve your issue or release you from all the sufferings. If you commit suicide and die, you will probably regret so much.
You must be in the lowest point possible right now, but you can get better with a right treatment.
If you give up and kill yourself, you will lose that opportunity to get better and feel better in the future.
Also, your family and friends are never better off without you. I know this because my 91 year old grandma committed suicide last year. We feel very sad and guilty thinking why couldn't we help her more???
Your loved ones want you to be alive and be close no matter how you are.
I am 28 and have been suffering from depression on and off since I was 15.
I won't write every detail of how tough my life has been, but you are certainly not alone when it comes to battling with the hardships of life.
Right now, my condition is not so bad, but there have been many times I felt like I want to die and people around me would be better off without me.
Once I actually overdosed on my medication. I am so glad that I am still alive and not brain damaged.
Just like you, I didn't believe in God and didn't know why I have to live such a tough life.
Few years ago I became Christian after my husband's countless attempts to make me believe in God. He felt believing in God will help me deal with my depression and all the negative effects it has on my life.
Now that I believe in God, I also believe we are all living for the afterlife. When I think like this, I am too afraid of killing myself and there is no way I can commit suicide knowing my spirit will keep on living even if I kill my body.
Also we must not kill ourselves for our loved ones.
I still have really low moments where I feel like I am in a living hell.
The other day I became so fed up with being depressed and angrily wondered why do I have to suffer so much?
That night, I opened a bible page which really struck me. It basically said, people who suffer a lot in this life time will be really blessed in the afterlife. On the other hand, people who get real easy life will have more suffering in the afterlife.
This really gave me motivation to keep on living no matter how difficult it might be.
I am not telling you to believe in God or become religious or anything.
I just think you won't become happier if you give up on your life now. You will regret and keep thinking why did I do such a stupid thing? You know, you can't redo your life if you commit suicide.
But if you hang in there and keep on living, you will definitely think "I am so glad I didn't kill myself" one day.
And when you complete your life, you will look back and think, "it has been a tough long journey but I did so well on not giving up! I am so proud of myself and can now rest in peace..."
I don't know what it's like to die but I am so sure you cannot rest in peace if you killed yourself.
Well, I hope this gave you some hope...
I am not a doctor but it sounds like you might have bipolar disorder which is a type of depression where your mood alternates between manic energetic period and depressive period. You should see a psychiatrist for the right diagnose and medical treatment.
It is treatable and you should seek help ASAP.
I hope you can get the right support network as well.
When you are feeling suicidal, you should talk to people you can trust or call help line.
Please try not to suffer on your own and din't be too hard on yourself.
hey im 15 to and i feel the exact same way(but i dont smoke or do drugs and nor did i drop out of school) i dont believe in love or people but i do believe in god and trust me if you just believe and pray he will help you in anything even though you wont see it but that's the good thing you dont have to see if you just pray he will be there for you ALWAYS(im not trying to force my beliefs on you i just wanna help and to do that i will pray for you)
Do you think that if you commit suicide God will reallly condemn you? Thats the only thing stopping me! If you really are unhappy is better to continue living in misery? Everyday just gets worse then the one before it!
i hate being me, i am so tire of this life. everytime i try toto get i always fall back down. i have 3 three kids dont see i try so hard but still at this tunnel. i am so weeak i cant kill myself and ther people around me dont understand what i feel. all they can say is she wants attention,why am i so dam weak and confuse? it hurts whenu cant talk to noonebecause allthey sayis u want attention when all u really want is just a shoulder.
I thought I was the only one..I understand...my sister who is 23years old comminted suicide a month ago. I have a fell into a deep depression and all i want is some1 to talk too. I feel like nobody cares about whats going on & feel a alone..theres not more than a hour that goes by that im not crying..outside..work it dosnt matter..i cant stop crying..stay strong try to talk to someone like from a church that dosnt cost anything
sorry you feel that way and I understand about being depressed. but suicide is not the answer. I am not trying to make a diagnose but it sounds like you are bipolar, have really bad mood swings or you have experienced something traumatic that no one knows about, and if thats the case you really need to talk to someone. good luck and get help you are too young to be thinking like that you have your whole life ahead of you.
well i understand what you are feeling i used to be the same way. i am but a year younger than you i used to have unexsplained moods swings,suicidel tendencies ect.. i started smokeing when i was eight years old and i am working on quiting, anyways i know it may seem like you have nothing to live for but everyvody hs a purpose in this ****** up thing we call life i also have a hudge fear in death yet i wanted to die so bad it hurt you just have to remember ppl tend to throw rocks at things that shine just keep your head up sunshine everything will be ok and ALLWAYS remember you are beautiful!!! (:
I'm Hannah I'm 12 and live NY anyway the post I read about u touched me and I feel like that because I lost all of my closet friends I had and I hate that sometimes just want to cry or cut myself it's like no one cares about me In school and I do have friends but when I'm in need there's no one to face im scared and just wanna die sometimes
I am a 61 year old man who Washington fired from his job. That was a month ago. I'm out of money and hope. I tired so damn tired of all the platitudes and cliches of why not to do yourself in. I would have done it long ago but I gave all my guns away after listening to such BS. Now I lack the means for a quick and relatively painless death. I am now looking for means.
I feel bad for you and even though i have no idea who u r i would be said if u did anf god is real he can do miracles please pray to him to help u everynight and i promise you will get better i promise i know this
hi what you say is from yr heart my partners son took his life in 2011 it devastated the whole family and all his friends... we as a family struggle every day to just get through I still wake and am in shock two years later... please... think of a million tears after youv gone try to get help... if this doest work then at least youv tried... we forgive you anyway allways and forever our love.x from a billion tears... If love could have saved you you would have lived forever... x
same here - i really want to die but always think of the people that i love. always cared about how would they react and feel about it. everyday i want to die, but i just cant commit suicide. i dont want them to know that my life is so miserable and i dont want them to feel guilty. just so sad to know that the people who cared about you just want you to be strong - coz its all what it takes to survive. i hate my life now, i drink, i smoke sometimes without them knowing. i really want to die believing it will start a new life.
It's good to open up your feelings to share here. Living for others is not going to be the solution. Dying is not going to start a new life. But you can always start a new life from where you are. Your life is about you, not others. I went through depression and had similar thoughts as you did. I was even on pills for some time. But today I've started all over again. Therefore I kinda know how you feel. Anyhow, you can't go on this way. If you don't mind, I'm always happy to listen to you and help as much as I can. But the only real cure is yourself through guidance from people around you and your surroundings. Everyone can create the force that can. Hope to hear from you soon. ;)
I am 50 and so depressed I want to die. I wont kill myself, but I have laid in bed and tried to make my heart stop like an appendage such as my hand from moving. The one great thing in my life is my son. He is in law school, but 2,000 miles away. He came for the holiday but will be leaving in 2 days. I am not sure where to turn. Many of these sites are for teenagers and veterans. I am trapped, my wife is suffering from many illnesses including early onset dimensia. I have a front row seat to see what takes her first. Her body or her head. I have gone to therapist, and have had little luck. My primary physician put me on antidepressants, but no luck. He referred me to a psychiatrist. It took 3 months to get an appointment, and the day of the appointment, I was driving into their parking lot and they called to tell me they could not take my insurance, but I was welcome to pay out of pocket. An option that is very difficult for me financially. Please someone tell me of a website that might help me. I am at the end of my rope. I sincerely hope that everyone on this site is able to live a happy life.
Hi Bart143. I am not sure if you got any help. Ive only just come across your difficult situation and its over 4 months since you posted. I have a mother in law who has been in the same position as you. It is so difficult.
