What? Two?

Well two is better than one, I suppose.

Life doesn't have worth, because you cant put a price on it. Your life only has as much worth as you honestly think it does. In all realism the universe would keep spinning if an entire race was killed off.

Thank you.


I'll be honest, it makes me smirk and sneer when I see attempts at suicide prevention.

I don't know, it's a mix of childish and irritating of people to try.

You know, the amount of military suicides last year hit an all time high?

You may even have more than that, if you open your eyes, mind, and heart.

Okay everyone, I'm sorry that the first post isn't super fancy. But I'm not a fancy person.

But I am passionate about this subject.
I've had someone close to me commit suicide.
And I have prevented many people from doing it since.

I'm actually planning on doing some foot work, in real life, and going and volunteering at a crisis center. Or something.


In today's digital world, isolation and feelings of being alone are common. The cell phone has all but replaced human interaction. Humans are social creatures. They need feedback. Negative or positive.

The only way to really help is to be a friend to someone. Smoke a bowl with them, help them move, cook their family dinner every once in a while, etc. Just let them know they are a part of "the whole".
Yeah, this thread is already a mess. It is going to die. Sorry, wrong choice of words.

Why suicide prevention though? Why not a depression/mental illness support thread? A suicide prevention support group won't last for the sole reason that there won't be enough posts to keep it relevant.

Can you blame us Military folk?

Look at Iraq and Afghanistan. How many civilians have been killed? Who is profiting from said invasion?

My battle buddies that are offing themselves are the ones that cannot handle the truth.

I help everyone I can in real life.
I thought I'd try to spread to the internet.

The internet is a scary place. But once you get used to it, it's a library. You begin to label categories and articles as fiction and non-fiction.

No, I certainly cannot.

And I cannot thank you people enough. You are brave, you are strong, and all you get for putting your life at risk every day is nothing from that sad thing we call a 'government'.

It's just a senseless waste of life... just, UGH. scream

And whats worse is if you don't off yourself, then you develop some form of PTSD and go crazy. People won't hire you, you probably are on drugs or alcohol, by this time your homeless, and so on and so forth.

I've been homeless for the past 2 years just couch surfing and living in small foxholes I dig up and down the Weber River. The military turned me into a bad a** capable of handling this with ease, but man is it nice to have a nice freaking bathroom. Even the ancient Romans had bathrooms......

I don't even know what to say.

You get screwed over in the military, nobody is willing to hire you... and you have no where to start.

Anywhere close by that's interested in hiring vets? Try to work your way up into one of those higher positions?

I've saved a few lives IRL.
Figured I'd try to spread to the web.
Just like to say thanks once again.
