If you are at high risk of suicide or in need of immediate assistance please call 911 now or your local emergency number.
If you live in the United States and you need someone to speak to about your suicidal feelings, please call one of the following national suicide prevention lines:
If you live outside of the United States and need to speak to someone, please go to the link below for International Hotlines outside of the United States. When you click on your country you will find a list of helplines in your area.
The fact that you are visiting this section is a very positive sign. It shows that deep down you do not want to harm yourself and that you really just want the pain to go away. These feelings are not uncommon and although they seem overwhelming right now, they do not last forever and should not be acted upon. There are people at ADISC who care about you and want to help see you through this. Strong suicidal feelings can sometimes be the result of a mental health issue which has been left unmanaged and can be treated. There is help available.
Since you're still reading this, you are hopefully a little unsure about committing suicide. The fact that you are alive means at least a part of you wants to live. Hang on to that! You've struggled to stay alive this long. Just commit to staying alive for one more day. You can use this time to call one of the helplines listed above, contact a friend, or just put some distance between yourself and these feelings. If you are still unsure but can't hold on any longer, then please consider getting yourself to a local hospital. They are there to help with these emergencies.
Feeling suicidal doesn't mean you want to die. You just have more pain than you can cope with right now, and it feels like the world is falling apart around you. When pain exceeds the coping resources, suicidal thoughts are the result. It's important to know that many people here at ADISC also live with depression or suicidal ideation. Living with ABDL tendencies can be rewarding, but it has often led to loneliness and isolation for many of us. That's why this group is so important. These issues are hard enough to live with by themselves, but if they are compounded with family matters or financial difficulties it can feel like all these weights are being added on to your shoulders an you just can't hold up any longer. When that happens we are here to help you through this with both emotional and practical support from people who are nonjudgmental, caring and experienced. We will not argue with you, or try to talk you out of badly you feel. We will simply care for you. Just don't feel that you have to deal with this on your own. We all feel this way at some point in our lives but remember this: The world is a better place with you in it.
