Because I think it is. I wish people could talk about it more easily, and also accept that life simply does not work for some people. But at the same time I realize that it goes against ones very instincts to take your own life, which is why most people find it such an alienating thought.
As for me, I'm glad I don't have the urges anymore, but for everyone out there that is thinking of ending it. I know how you feel, and I hope that you won't have to make the ultimate decision. I really hope that you do find a way - any way - to pick yourself up again. Lord knows it took me long, long enough to get to the point where I felt reasonably happy again.
Finally, I think GAG could use a 'Mental Health' category. Maybe.

I agree about the Mental Health category.
I think there should be less stigma attached to mental illnesses in general; they should be treated as what they are, ie. illnesses. There's no more reason to be ashamed of having a mental illness than having a physical one; and mentally ill people should be able to talk about their experiences and get support from those around them
I am so sorry that you've been suicidal in your life; nobody deserves to go through that. I'm really glad that you are feeling so much better now <32
