    I walked in on a person trying to commit suicide one time. It was personal. We were close...

    ****ed up thing to do to someone. If you want to off yourself don't call nobody to save your ass. Just do it.


    Pretty much went like this.

    My thoughts on suicide are......

    I've been in some very low places, and I could never go through with killing myself, I would have to imagine that they were some place worse. I don't think it would be right for me to place judgement on them.

    I've never known anyone who successfully killed themselves.

    I've known a few who "tried".

    Seemed more like a cry for help or an attempt to manipulate people than actually trying to kill themselves.

    I told the one I referenced to jump, to go ahead. I was waiting. Called their bluff.



    I've been down. So far down where dying sounded okay. If I didn't wake up the next day I was okay.

    Actually hurting myself never crossed my mind though outside of drugs and drinking like a depressed idiot.

    Numbing myself with stuff seemed way more practical than killing myself.

    Besides, Catholics can't kill themselves.

    Exactly how I feel. I think it's a little narrow-minded (to put it as politely as possible) when people take the attitude of "selfish f***" or "coward" or whatever when someone kills themselves. I've been in a really low place before where I really did not care if I lived or died. BUT, I was not going to kill myself. That said, I'm not going to sit here and act like what I was going through was the worst type of thing a person could go through. I know I can't even begin to imagine the pain that some people legitimately feel on a daily basis.

    It's a sad thing and I don't think it's really our place to judge.

    Someone who reported to me at work killed herself before this past christmas. She had not been at work for many months after being institutionalized after a suicide attempt before. It was only a freak chance encounter that saved her the first time.

    Yea, IMO it just takes a bad and dark place for someone to take their own life, certainly not 'cowardly'. It has actually been proven that calling suicide cowardly is counter productive to people having those thoughts. Depression coupled with the guilt of being 'greedy' is a dangerous mixture.
