Not gonna lie. I fantasize about killing myself all the time. I think I'm too much of a pussy to actually go through with it, but I'm telling you, if I someone gave me a gun, I don't think I'd be able to resist the impulse to shoot myself. It'd be too easy.

I can't be the only one who finds it really comforting?

I don't plan on killing myself mind you, I just fantasize about it a lot.

Those are known as passive thoughts of suicide. I think most people have them now and then. They are dangerous if they ever become active, such as one making serious detailed plans to take their life, etc. The number is here if you or your friends ever need it.

Thanks, Bobby, for opening up additional options.

A thing that has been helpful for me in the past was to try to imagine what life would be like if my main problems were suddenly resolved, even if that seemed far fetched at that moment. I would keep my focus and hope on that idea and then intentionally work towards that goal. Life's complexities would then seem to clear up and unravel over time. Things eventually got better much faster than I had even thought and the darkness that was leading me to self-harm lifted. Sometimes a simple change from negative thinking to a positive mode of thinking can go a long way. Reaching out and talking with *trustworthy* people about the darkness I was experiencing was also key for my recovery.

Title: Re: Suicide Prevention
Post by: Simon Woodstock on March 15, 2013, 02:31:09 PM
Actually very good advice there.

It's the basic principle of Reframing ones thinking. A similar strategy is to realize that even a lot of the most serious problems in life are not flaring up for all 24 hrs in our daily lives. The key is for one to focus his/her thinking on the times throughout the day when the problem(s) are not negatively pressing. One can try to mentally live in those non-crisis moments as the moments morph into larger stretches of time and the problems begin to reduce. It's sort of a mental way of "buying time" for emotional healing to take place, thus giving a person strength to face the problems themselves. The darkness can then start to turn into light.

Personal problem solving is the goal as the problems are depression causing villains. There is encouragement and hope in that I have seen some of the most complex/negative/pressing issues be solved in people's lives with effort over time.

Also, the clown is right. Don't kill yourself. Kill OTHER PEOPLE. You'll totally be famous, just like James Holmes or Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris! People will obsess over the music you listened to, the beautiful writing you've probably done, and your awesome paintings that somebody really needs to see. If you survive then you'll end up in jail, where all those problems you had on the outside will be a memory, you'll get free food and health care, and probably a lot of interesting and twisted fan mail.

trust me, you're not. i've fantasized about leaving this earth and dreamt about the peace it would bring. i've always been curious about it, but i honestly was petrified about the consequences/reality of death as a kid. as an adult, i feel like it would be beautiful. regardless if i go into an infinite sleep-mode or land on Heaven's Gate or experience some other magickal, mystical reality/outcome, i know it'll be amazing. most people fear death or think about it in a negative light. it's comforting to look forward to the only thing we all have to face.

I wrote an embarrassing paragraph about my suicidal tendencies then deleted it. Let's just say I feel bad.

don't feel bad, man. i tried killing myself a few times as a teenager over some lame, high-school emo shit. i drank bleach, tried hanging myself and was at one point about to swallow a shitload of pills and call it a day. don't be embarrassed/ashamed about your pain. i've seen a few of your recent posts and i feel for you.

no matter how bad you think your situation is, know that it can get better.

hey simon youre one of my favourite skaters so if theres anyone i wanna tell my problems to its to u. im 19, never been in a relation ship, have no friends, no sex life. i think i have tetanus and lockjaw and anemia. aparently girls think im very attractive butmaybe just cuz i skateboard because i dont know how to hold a conversation other than talk about myself and the boring things ive done. (one time a very nice and attractive girl was giving me 'signs' for a whole month in sumer school but since i cant pick up signs i blew that one). i dont think im gay snce when i see a nice ass i want to have sex with it and try my hardest to avoid rape fantasies. i have a voice inside my head that i rlly wana get rid of since i fear it will soon turn into two voices t hen multiply etc etc. i have an unhealthy obsession with hood culture videos and i think its really making me go insane. i do not watch any educational or uplifting content on youtube, only videos like this
Bloccs Projects & Ent Vol.2 DVD Intro Dedication to the Fallen Soldiers from Vol.1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3G-xnPKYKhc#)

im a huge fan of the editing style and content but
i fear its turning me into an autistic schizo wigger
people have told me i talk 'ghetto' and that concerns me as i was born into a white ffamily (although still poor)
also these are the only videos that bring joy into my life, and if i were to tell anyone i watch this kind of stuff on the daily and enjoy it
they would want nothing to do with me.. anyway
i see mental disorders in my near future and im not doing anything to help that
someone told me yoga is good for ur mind i might try it. but if i were to try the yoga i would have a dissonance with the lifetstyle portrayed in the videos i watch 24/7 and what is actually good for me. i am concerned!

Is starting threads on SLAP getting you credit towards some missionary work or something?  Get off your ass and go door to door so that people can at least have the satisfaction of telling you to fuck off in person.  Jesus Fucking Christ did it, so can you.

That's not my motivation. The main Suicide/Crisis hotline number is non faith based. I added the faith based prayer hotline option if people are interested. Slap Admin Bobby Peru stepped up and offered the help of the Slap Pals from a non-prayer perspective. I personally won't be doing religious debate on this thread. Also, I am receiving no ministry credit for this effort.

If you have any non-faith based help resources to share on here, please do.

Personally I've always thought 1-800-784-2433 was the best call. You get a very professional group of people
that genuinely love to help others and listen. We talk about anything from Jesus to golf. When I get off the phone I realize I am
apart of this world and can make a difference, if we could all just listen to each other we would get the answer. I believe in us and am always here for any of you pals or newbies. We will one day join together in arms and really nail it! Thanks again guys

Years ago, I read a powerful article in The San Francisco Chronicle (I think) that went into detail on several different aspects of committing suicide off the Golden Gate Bridge. The article explained that people survived the jump by hitting the water at an angle so they didn't go too deep into the water; that the impact shredded people's insides- bones, ribs, guts; but that people typically die from drowning because the go so deep into the water; but the part that sticks out in my mind the most is that, almost invariably, survivors report that the split second after they stepped off the bridge they wish they hadn't done it.
What a crazy perspective to have.

I've been getting these kind of feelings more and more lately.  Haven't been stoked on some shit for way too long, and as said above if I miraculously had a gun in one of my more down states it'd be over.

I've been working overnights at a homeless shelter since November, I'm actually working right now. reading this kinda pissed me off but I understand what you're getting at. I've had multiple people threaten to kill themselves while I'm supervising, I've made multiple calls to Crisis and they've always been very helpful. One guy in particular came to mind when I read the quoted post; a dude whose back problems/nerve damage made it impossible to work, for years he's been prescribed opiate-based painkillers, yet one day the doc concludes that he is an addict and no longer gives him meds (happens all the time, especially if you aren't paying a shit ton of $$$ for a private practice or something). So essentially this dude spends every moment of his life in horrible pain (nerve damage is next level badness) for which the only relief is opiates, but the doctors won't give him any so he goes and shoots dope. I remember the night he threatened to end it, I took him outside for a smoke and we were chatting about some shit. The conversation got pretty heavy, then he starts talking about killing himself, I tried to protest and be a voice of "reason". I remember him asking "Look me in the eyes and tell me I have one reason to live." I was completely dumbfounded and had absolutely nothing truly legitimate to say, and it felt like shit.

That dude has moved on from this part of the country, vagabonding about hopefully, I really hope he never did it. I used to get pretty sorry for myself but that ended since I got this job. I may not have gotten laid in a minute but at least I have a place to stay and my youth, I wouldn't say that I am happy but I am starting to gain a little more perspective on why I should value my life.

A key principle here is the value of human life. Every person on the earth has great value. Also, every person has the ability to overcome great adversity. It is when the chips are down that this can become very hard and the help of others is needed.

If you are doing good emotionally, reach out to someone who isn't. If you are not doing so good emotionally right now, reach out to those who can help.

Years ago, I read a powerful article in The San Francisco Chronicle (I think) that went into detail on several different aspects of committing suicide off the Golden Gate Bridge. The article explained that people survived the jump by hitting the water at an angle so they didn't go too deep into the water; that the impact shredded people's insides- bones, ribs, guts; but that people typically die from drowning because the go so deep into the water; but the part that sticks out in my mind the most is that, almost invariably, survivors report that the split second after they stepped off the bridge they wish they hadn't done it.
What a crazy perspective to have.

What does the person care if it's acceptable? They'll be dead. 

I can't think of any situation, I mean maybe if you were in solitary confinement for life at a supermax, in a cell 23 hours a day with limited access to reading materials, and the only human contact you have is with the guard who brings your food, I could see then you really have no options.

Simon I hope you aren't projecting, offering to help others struggling with this because you want help in your own struggle. All joking about the oddity of this thread appearing aside, I've always loved your skating. Definitely one of a kind shit.

Remember when you fought "sticky fingaz" from Onyx at the mtv profit off of skateboarding fest? I was always hyped you won that fight.


Oh, and I always loved Jub because he came off as extremely stupid and willing to hurt himself in serious ways to make it as a pro. Never particularly talented, but him just rolling off of that ledge in label kills was hillariously awesome. He did some pretty big gaps too. He was like Jaws without all that talent getting in the way of his insanity.

Naw, man. I'm doing really well these days. It just got kind of gnar back in 2004-2006 as a bunch of emo baggage caught up with me from a previous young adult life of addiction and so forth. It was weird because I hadn't used any drugs or alcohol since 1997 so I was wondering what the heck was going on. I was having mixed episodes of brutal anxiety and depression. I no longer have such episodes.

There are a lot of specific details of how I recovered, but what made all the difference was that before I even realized that I could get counseling and help in my misery, an old friend I hadn't heard from in a long while sent me an e-mail that simply read "how are you doing?"

I was feeling terrible at the time so I responded with honesty "well, not so good...." and I aired out a lot of my troubles to his open ear. Simply because he cared enough to check in on me, the healing process began on that day. The intention of this thread is to kind of pay that forward and let my skateboarding bretheren know that I care in hopes that people in similar circumstances can turn the corner and get better.

PS. I sucked pretty bad against Sticky. The fight vs. Mike Muir in '96 was the one where I had a little pep in my step (check youtube).

?The thought of suicide is a great consolation: by means of it one gets through many a dark night.? --Friedrich Nietzsche


Also, I vaguely remember reading an article that was written from interviews with a bunch of people who survived their suicide attempts and a majority of the respondents said that their attempt was impulsive and not a result of a long-standing depression or mental issue.  It seems like more people are willing to attempt suicide because of a confluence of details (a perfect storm of reasons, feelings, materials, etc) than a deep-seated desire to die.

Drinking and using drugs are just an unhealthy way of forgetting your problems for a while without actually having to work you way through them. They will never solve anything, but they will just help you to put them aside for a while, but in the long run, the problems will just pile up, and you will either need to face them, or use more and more drugs to keep them of your mind. Eventually you have to man up or you will die. suicide is the most extreme and fastest way to get away from your problems without ever having to deal with them. The big key to happiness is accepting all the crappy things in your life and concentrating on the good parts. majority of people aren't able to live their lives the way they wanted to. But still life is always worth living when you just look at it the right way.

I'm pretty sure many people have said this already, but it's worth reiterating : It will get better.
Life is short, but it's also pretty long if you think about it.  Weeks, months, years down the road, who knows where you'll be?
You might be in the best place you've ever been.  
I agree with Ben, you have to accept the things in life.  It's the bad things that make the good things that much better imo.
L33tG33k, I don't know how bad you've had it, but I feel like I went though something similar in my childhood.  I've always had weird identity issues growing up (Moved from place to place, culture shock, parental expectations vs. what I wanted to be, etc.) so I always felt disconnected somewhat from the people around me.  But as time passed, I learned to like the alone time, and got to meet a lot of great people that didn't treat me like an outcast.  I don't know the key to being happy, but the best advice I can really give you is give it your all, and appreciate what you got.

edit:

This is an important ethics question: I would say it depends on the case. If someone has a viable chance of living some life out and/or recovering from the ailment that is causing them to be on life support, then there would be no pragmatic justification (financial reasons or other) for removing the life support. Conversely, if the life support is the only thing keeping the individual alive at the bare minimum in an obvious vegetative state (i.e., no brain activity whatsoever, etc.) for prolonged time and there is no viable chance of recovery, then removing the 'heroic means' of sustaining that life is justifiable.

These are obviously tough emotional situations, but the oaths doctors sign on for when they enter the practice is to do what they can to promote life, not initiate unnecessary/avoidable deaths. This keeps hospitals (theoretically) safe places to go.

Where's this quote from?

My arms and legs look like a chopping block but yes, skateboarding helps.

There's not one day that goes by that I haven't thought about it much like shooting a bag of dope or drowning myself in a gallon of whiskey. What stops me is I usually fail in my attempts or I just skate the misery away.

Why do you need to get fucked, to begin with? Find it and make it manageble, you'll be better off.

I used to take comfort in the fact that I could just kill myself if my anxiety, health and depression got any worse. Then I became a father and now I have anexity about dieing because that would ruin my wife and my sons life. Itís been an interesting evolution. To be completely non suicidal but have constant health anexity because worse than death to me is disabling health problems that stop you from being a good provider and role model. I have two autoimmune diseases that I just keep down with a stupid diet and supplements.

  This thread reminds me that I'm pretty scared of death and I can sense it starting to grasp at me now in my more recent advancement of age.
