Suicidal Thoughts

I would be lying if I said I didn’t have any suicidal thoughts after my recent break-up.  It’s a place my brain goes to when I’m in a lot of pain.  I want the pain to end, and suicide would be an end to that pain.  Fortunately, I have a lot of support.  There are crisis lines I can cal and friends I can talk to.  I also have a good therapist and psychiatrist.  As much as I’ve thought about suicide, the fear of hurting myself is strong, and there really isn’t a way to kill yourself without hurting yourself.

I’ll get through this.  It may take some time, but I’ll get through it.

    As trite as it sounds, Time is about the only thing that will truly heal this type of thing. I remember a few break-ups where I tried to throw myself into my work. Didn’t help, and only made me more tired and depressed. Glad you know where to reach out to for help, and remember, friends are here for you as well.

    Hello, Ryan. I’m Ryan Dow. I found you by googling my name, and have spent the last day or so reading through your archive. Even though I’m a teenager, I still relate to a lot of the stuff you have gone through. I’ve had suicidal thoughts before, just keep telling yourself that you’ll get through. I really love your comic, and the work you do, and if you ever want to pick someone’s brain, or just want someone who will listen to you with no judgments and who isn’t involved in your real life, I’d be more than happy too. I know how much having someone listen can mean. *Zen Hugs*
