I think that some do, although the ones that are seeking attention, rarely carry it through, or tend to make a phone-call before taking an overdose. they know that the person on the line will phone for an ambulance. Some of them die, or do major damage to their organs but survive, at least for a while anyway.
The ones that really do mean to do it, rarely tell anyone. I have had a couple of personal experiences of acquaintances that fall into this category.
had one friend come to my work to talk.
i wish i had just stopped work and talked to the dude.
but even had i taken the time, he did it after seeing her with a new guy at a bar that night.
Does anyone know if there's a connection between the way people kill themselves and their thoughts?
For example if someone was a step off a building it could be that their looking to let go.
Or if they try to drown themselves then something / someone is missing from their lives?
I myself have been in the very dark place where the impulse came over me however my friend walked by and stopped my intentions. Ever since then I've wondered because my thoughts before that had involved an overdose of insullin but at that moment that was the last thing on my mind. just wondering what your thoughts are.
2 hung themselves, girl issues.
