Should I make another attempt?

1

I made a suicide attempt about 5 1/2 months ago and obviously I failed. Things haven’t gotten any better for me since the botched attempt. My depression and eating problems are still really bad. I just feel so worthless and like I’m just in everyone’s way. That’s a really quick short version of how I’m feeling right now. With everything that’s been happening, I’m finding myself asking if I should attempt suicide again. I don’t know if it’s wrong to consider putting everyone through all the pain all over again … but I really just feel like I want to disappear and like I need everything to stop.

You don't need to die, you need some drugs! (of the legal prescription variety) Talk to a doctor about how you feel. And really, you're not in the way; it's really nice to have you here. Perhaps you could use your deep feelings to create some art or music and help people appreciate your existential dilemma.

No, you shouldn't. I attempted suicide 16 years ago. It does get better. It's not always easy, and it might take a while, but it does get better.Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255

Suicide is never the answer. The world is a pretty messed up place sometimes, but we are all put through the struggles to teach us lessons that we can use later. Please, don't make another attempt. I did one time, and I'm so glad that it didn't work, because life is pretty great right now. It will get better for you, I guarantee it. Please stay safe and stay strong.

No. Please don't. There's always something that can be done even in the most hopeless of times. Stay strong.

I've tried it several times and well, to put it plainly, it sucks (I'm sure you know). If you feel really in danger go straight to A&E, they will keep you safe. Even if the threat isn't immediate you should definitely at least see a counsellor and/or doctor and discuss it with them. I know the whole recovery process is long, difficult and not very fun at all, but it really is worth it, I promise. Please, stay safe. You can message me if you need to.

No one is going to reply 'yes' to that question. I recommend seeing a doctor and talking to them about it, as he will then probably refer you to a psychiatrist for a prescription coupled with seeing a professional every so often.
