Suicide

Post by originallad » Mon Jul 01, 2024 3:12 pm

Tried to kill myself yesterday.

It wasn't a cry for help. I wanted to kill myself. I wrapped two plastic bags around my head and hung myself.

My wife found me. Unconscious.

Suppose it was in the nick of time. I don't remember much about it tbh.

I guess I'm relieved to be alive somewhat. But still feel like utter s***.

Not sure what I'm supposed to do now mentally.

I'm seeing my GP. Work have been great. So have family and friends

I just feel lost.

Sorry to hear it, but glad you're still here to make this thread. Sounds like you've got support around you and are talking to the right people, it won't be easy, but hopefully that day can be a turning point towards something better.

It's not easy but it can get better. Friend of mine was in a similar place two years ago. With help from professionals and support from near and dear, he's far away from that

Very sorry to hear it! Sounds like you're doing the right thing and seeking professional support so well done. Give yourself time and understanding. Your family and friends will only be grateful of the fact you're still here.

Life can be gruelling. We've never met, but my DM's are open if you ever wanted to chat. :) <ok>

Sorry to hear this, hopefully you’ve hit rock bottom and this is the start of your climb back out. Maybe your wife was meant to find you when she did and it’s a chance to get the help and support you need. Can’t imagine what it’s like to be in that place but here if you need anything.
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

I'm glad you're still here mate. You're doing the right thing seeing your GP and getting help. It's ok to feel lost, I've certainly felt like that before! I hope you're able to take the time for yourself and focus on your recovery - that's all that matters right now. Glad to hear you've got people around you... I'm here too if you need to talk. Sometimes it can be easier speaking with people you've never met <ok>
It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

I sincerely hope you find all the strength you need to battle through this, I'm a firm believer in fate and believe there is a reason your wife found you, you belong here brother and you have worth in this world. Talking about this and facing it head on and being open is a massive massive thing, seeking help is unbelievably hard and you are taking those steps.

You've got this, stay strong.
