My husband bought a Harley & I thought to myself, didn't voice my opinion to him at all, but I thought what's going on? Is he unhappy with his family? Is he going thru a mid-life crisis? When he brought it home, it was summer time & he said " go get some jeans on, grab a thin jacket just in case & let's go ". It was the best feeling ever! It's seems like all the stress & worries of everyday life just disappear. When he wants to get on it & go, even if I don't want to for whatever the reason may be, I never say a word because I know what a stress reliever it is. It doesn't have to be a Harley or a bike at all, just something that makes YOU happy. Like " Dan " said love & support your children as you should but do something for yourself that makes you happy! May God Bless you & may he guide you thru these hard times that your going thru.

what would you take to blow my dam head off because i can not take my ex and my kids problems no more?
+i see that noone has answered your question. a large caliber pistol, or a shotgun, properly placed in the mouth, pointing toward the spot daigonally opposite the chin, and fired should do it. the entire head may not be blown off but a sufficient portion to achieve the desired results will.

Use a shotgun to the head, it's supposedly 98% effective. And don't worry about getting gutted like a fish for the autopsy and leaving all your sh!t behind for someone else to deal with. You're not going to do anything though and this is all just a bunch of BS. People who are serious rarely announce their intentions. How many "suicide" threads does this make now on Topix?!?!?

I would have to agree with you.

get help I, too, lived through the suicide of my first husband. But in his case, I did not consider it selfish. He went to doctor after doctor. He couldn't work but was not on SS disability. He was completely miserable and miserable to be around. I worried would my sons think this is what a man is? Would my daughter, God forbid, marry someone like this? What kind of example was I setting?? After he completed his suicide, my kids and I grieved. Whether he could not accept the help that was given or the help just did not really help, I'll never know. Since then I met and married a warm man who loves life. He adopted my children and is a wonderful father. I never blamed my first husband. If I felt as bad as he appeared to all the time, I do not know that I would want to live. We still mention the good times and occasionally they ask me questions about him, which I answer as honestly as possible. But we are stronger today than we were then.
lets talk about this

As a widow of someone who committed suicide, let me tell you: 1) Yes it is somewhat selfish of someone to commit suicide. But you must think about this, you don't know what is actually going on inside that person. You don't know how they may be hurting or feel they are hurting someone else. We all have our demons and persons who commit suicide have theirs, but may not be able to express themselves.
2) It is not always true that persons who commit suicide rarely talk about it. My husband mentioned it more than once, and even hoped that he himself could get the thoughts out of his head. He seeked help for this, but the looming sense of doom just would not leave him.
3) Never think that it is cowardly of someone to commit suicide. This takes NERVE! This is not something someone actually "wants" to do. I'm sure thoughts of being happy go through one's head the same as the thoughts of being helpless and sad. I was mad for a while at what a "coward" he was to leave me. That he wouldn't face up to life. But now I realize it's just the opposite. He was very "nervy" to think it through exactly how he wanted to do this. To think through how he was going to let me know what he had done. To think through how he was going to set up the shotgun and manage to pull the trigger, probably with his toe. This was not something done in haste.
Lastly let me say that I'm not sure what his last thoughts actually were. Did he pray for forgiveness from me? from God? or was he so far "out there" that he thought of nothing but ending his pain?
There will never be answers for those questions, or as to what the REAL reason may have been.
Before you become so judgemental of persons who commit suicide, and of the families they leave behind, remember, this could happen to any one of us at any time.
God Bless each of you

Your life your choice. I have for a while considered and researched suicide for my own means. I would recommend suffocation via co2 or "death by hibachi" as it is known its highly effective considered to be painless clean and easy.

If you decide not to even better, but if you do no need to make a big mess or die in pain.

It is a sad day when we can speak of suicide with such indifference.

I'm prolly going to regret posting this... but if it helps anyone think... just a little more... it's worth it. So laugh it up. "Whatevz" haha that's such a stupid way of saying whatever but whatever...

I've been there...
betrayed... broke (to the point of hungry and having no clue how electric was getting paid), 70 hour work weeks and it's not enough, stress eating my stomach up to the point of wanting to vomit, sadness from loss...
Yup, I've wanted to kill myself, end it... it was all too much... hope was no where to be seen... such is life...

However, my brother shot himself first.
Now that... was pain. I'd never truly known the beast before hand. I dam sure thought I had...

I couldn't even begin to explain that empty, horrible, nasty feeling. Money, bills, stress... the elements that made me wish I could just quit... that made me wish I was dead....
None of that mattered anymore. All I could think, while I was holding Brian's hands in the hospital, was that I would never feel his hands **warm**... again... I even wiped the blood from his nose with a tissue and put it in my pocket... sounds crazy... but it's all I'd have left.

After that, I prayed a lot... I wondered why God made things so hard on people. I, obviously now, couldn't kill myself. My mom would not be able to handle it... But still, years came and went, and things never got better... I still wanted to disappear. I still questioned God.(I'm not trying to turn this into a religious debate. This is simply my personal experience.)
Then one day, it did get easier. Bills were getting paid off. Forgiveness was found. I was laughing again... blah blah blah... so on and so forth.

Today, I can say in all truth, I've never felt so at peace and happy in my life.
I look around me and see where the sweat and tears have taken me...
Yeah...
It's so dam hard...
But it's so dam worth it.

You just never know what cards will fall if you don't play the game...
