Some friends you've got there

Today, I wrote a post about how I was thinking of attempting suicide. Not one single person contacted me to see if I was alright. FML

Even if you dont have good friends or family now, it is possible to heal and form better relationships in the future. Please reach for help. I wish the best continuation for you.

While reaching out for help is great, doing it in a general way to test your friends isn't. If you were using facebook or instagram your friends probably didn't even see it as those posts rarely get interaction and the algorithms on those sites promote things with a lot of likes. If you are thinking of committing suicide, making a post like that can seem like a way to ask for help but it's much better to speak to a friend before having those feelings and asking them if they can be a support. That way you get their consent to take on that huge role in your life. If you don't have a friend like that a mental health provider or a hotline is a much better resource. I've been there, I've been suicidal with a plan, you will never get the help you need by shouting into the void. Make plans before you get to a low point so that you're not desperate when you get there. And if you're always at that low point, reach out to your healthcare provider and be honest.

Did you want help? Or just attention?

What the hell is wrong with you?

the way the fml is written it is hard to tell. and yes people do post suicidal thoughts to social media for attention. the same people never understand why this is a problem, and I have seen this sort of fml complaining about not getting attention for the same thing. eventually people get tired of hearing others cry wolf. Also if they wanted help they could say as such...

its a valid question though?

Nothing. Thats the issue with people like her. Most just want attention and then complain that people are sick of it after the 10th time.

I dont want to sound mean but are you in need of help or just attention? And maybe your family and friends see this all the time.

1-800-273-8255 is the number for the national suicide hotline. Idk who you are, or what’s going on, but give them a call

1-800-273-8255. They’re the national suicide hotline. Give them a call, preferably now.

I'm sorry. This doesn't deserve to be an FML. Feel free to message me if you want to talk.
