    want to set a time and a place, to like hurl yourself off a bridge, and post it around online, and on posters, and see if anyone shows up to stop you?

    Do you need help? But I think only drama queens do this if they are just doing it to see who becomes concerned about you.

    no. most people wouldn't show up because A) the person probably wouldn't do it and B) most people truly don't care.

    Why would you want to do that? Life is wonderful even when you think things are going bad. Suicide is not the solution to any problem., it's a coward way of escaping and not wanting to deal with the troubles of daily life.

    How do people get to that point? I mean can life really be that bad? Or is it just another case of drama queens begging for attention. I mean there is so much cool shit in this world, go figure it out and quit bitching about it.

    Someone would show up because I'd have to call the police and tell them icon_razz.gif

    But yeah bridge jumping means you are pretty far gone. It's not like other methods.. you have to climb over the side and then jump. I looked over the Washington Bridge in NYC the other day and remembered someone who jumped from it and was like.. shit thats a long way down.

    Frankly, YES... I also wish I could pull a Tom Sawyer/Huck Finn and view my own funeral to see what would happen.

    what an odd topic for a thread.

    it seems those that really would do so, would just do it, without the fanfare. the coping mechanisms for the person would seem to be overwhelmed by the stress felt. therefore the threshold for the final attempt to reach out and save the system (person), would have been long passed, and the system self-destructs.

    those who would post it, would already seem to have the systems of support to not get to that point yet, and would have not reached that point of self-destruction. therefore, the system can be saved.

    still, the thread is a bit morbid, but not entirely irrational.

    and i think that's enough two-bit analysis from me for 2:48 in the morning.

    It makes me very sad when I hear a friend has chosen the "Permanent solution to the temporary problem"

    Who would show up?...I think you'd be surprised at who would show up to support and try their best to help you.
    Do I think the world cares enough?...Sadly, I don't think so, but hey you'll never know the wonders you'll see tomorrow.

    I've come to see suicide as the most selfish act of all. Expecting some one else to be interested in it just does not fit in with the model.

    The number of people to show up would really depend not on who cares, but on how effective the publicity was. Do you want to end your life by trusting in advertising. I don't.

    You must first care for yourself. Then you must learn to give. Then you will find others who care. Caring is not just give or just take. It is an exchange. It is also hard work at times, but well worth the trouble.
