    How sad indeed ..
    that they are so disconnected from everything ..
    so wanting the attention ..
    but no one is there to talk to ..
    they don't even think that there is anyone who would be there for them ..
    they post this on FaceBook ..
    and what's worse .. so many don't say anything at all ...
    (and too many times .. there's hundreds of friends listed .. yet NOT ONE feels like notifying FB immediately NOR (if they know the person) Notify the Local Police to do a welfare check on this individual at all ..

    I think some not serious about it, and some are. Either way I hope they get some help because they're in pain, having some issues.

    Its sad because many people think it is for attention. You never know the underlying psychological issues one might be struggling with. However it would be wrong to place blame on social reasons, especially on a social site.

    .............having past suicide thoughts, momentary, and not following through, " I would listen intently, for a long time before presuming to offer advice, ..........but I do care for sincere, troubled persons, and I am here to help, perhaps by being a sounding board, or sponge, to give a willing person an open door to hopefully share their problems with, " however, I also have a Spiritual Discernment to know who needs help, and many that just want to ridicule on postings of substance " .............. You know, who You are, enough said on this.............

    can be interpreted many ways...I've gotten more texts than posts on the internet. I always respond with immediate caution and I try to calm the person down. Afterwards I usually make the judgement on attention getter or legitimate attempt. I mean I've saved a couple lives so treat each post/text with caution because you never know.

    I think they are reaching out for help. I have several friends that have committed suicide. My one friend that has past now once told me. He thought suicide was the only hope he had left and it was his last solution to his problems. He couldn't bare the pain and torment that he felt inside any longer. Half a year later he committed Suicide.

    There was a girl who did that, she made over 900 posts crying for help and people responded by edging her on. Do you know what happened? She attempted to kill herself and ended up brain dead, and her parents had to make the decision to pull the plug.

    Suicide is a terrible thing whether posted on the internet or not. The internet just makes it harder to decipher when the person is serious or merely trying to get attention.

    I didn't say that it shouldn't, I just think its easier to hide the truth from people on the internet. Posting on the internet doesn't make it less serious, just harder to tell if its genuine.

    Oh it is, I've run into one person like that. One person, versus countless others that actually seriously needed someone to talk too because they were seriously thinking about killing themselves (and had a lot of people edging them on).

    It's a really touchy subject for me, both actually being on the edge and attempting suicide 3 times and having lost a very dear friend to suicide and being the very last person he talked too.

    But even if it's only for attention, I'd still think they are in need of some serious help. How deprived of attention do you have to be that the only way you'll think you get any is to threaten to kill yourself? Or to cut yourself? What kind of mental problems does one have that actually makes them feel that this is a good idea?

    Both my boyfriend and mother are diagnosed with depression and both have contemplated suicide. My mother has even attempted it once or twice. Its a touchy subject for me too.

    It should always be taken seriously, but some people who want attention aren't in need of mental help. Some people joke about suicide because they'd think it'd be funny. Suicide or harming oneself in any way is never a joke. So yes, it should be taken seriously, but not everyone who threatens it has a legitimate basis (not implying that I or anyone else should judge their reasons).

    That when they put there plan on the internet that this is a big cry for help thats for sure but then I have to say that everyone of us who had bad times should allways remember those who need us like our kids or brothers and sisters.that we dont do this when you could hurt so many people by killing yourself.....

    I think it is the last act of reaching out before they go. They want someone or anyone to recognize their pain and perhaps save them from themselves.

    I think it is one last cry for help to see if someone will talk them out of it, in most cases.

    Dangerous misconception that can cost lives, in fact that's one of the red flags that someone is going to kill themselves. They talk about it, do you know why they talk about it? They want to be helped, they want to be stopped, they don't want to kill themselves but they're in so much mental anguish that they don't know what else to do.

    There was a girl who made over 900 posts about being depressed, bullied and wanting to kill herself. People reacted by edging her on, do you know what happened? She tried to kill herself, she ended up brain dead, and her parents were left with the decision to pull the plug. It's an attitude like that caused her death and have driven countless others to killing themselves.

    I think it's hard to filter out the ones who are just looking for handouts, like the lady in New York who posted her impending suicide, only to find out she decided NOT to do it and got donations for kind folks instead to pay all her bills she was lamenting about. That's not cool.
