What do people thinking of suicide say?

57 second video with pictures. You got the time for that.

This is a 57 second video on what people who are thinking of suicide say. It’s just a few of the comments. Most of the time, when you hear these things, you feel it. And sometimes because you don’t know what to do or what it means, you glaze over it and go about your day not meaning to overlook a cry for help.

But listening is your best currency. Connecting with another human being and taking that time can prevent suicide. Sometimes that’s all it takes. Please share.

  1. I said many of those things prior to my hospitalization. When you’re in constant pain, it’s so hard! The feelings of guilt are overwhelming. I’d pray at one point to just die in my sleep. Although, I’m better now psychologically, I have to watch and make sure that I don’t fall back down that slippery slope.

    1. One day at a time Christopher. I am glad you are feeling better. We are better and stronger than depression. What helped me was challenging it and improving my life by making continuous progress. Depression does NOT own me. This is my life and my rules and I have to protect it. Keep fighting !
