Most people who at some time in their lives think about suicide decide to live because they come to realize that the crisis is temporary and death is permanent. On the other hand, people having a crisis sometimes perceive their dilemma as inescapable and feel an utter loss of control.
These are some of the feelings and thoughts they experience:
• Can’t stop the pain
• Can’t think clearly
• Can’t make decisions
• Can’t see any way out
• Can’t sleep, eat or work
• Can’t get out of depression
• Can’t make the sadness go away
• Can’t see a future without pain
• Can’t see themselves as worthwhile
• Can’t get someone’s attention
• Can’t seem to get control
If you experience these feelings, caring people are waiting to help. Simply call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) toll-free, where you’ll be connected to a skilled, trained counselor at a crisis center in your area, any day, at any hour, 24/7/365.
