: Kathryn, you say suicide is a permanent solution
: to a temporary problem. But what if you are one
: of the many people in here that have a problem
: you have a chronic physical problem you have been
: dealing with for the past 30 years of your life.
: That would not be considered a "Temporary problem"
: That individual would understand that they have
: been suffering for a long time. So to tell them
: there problem is temporary could be false in
: certain situations. Like mine. But I still
: don't think anyone should end their life. I think
: they should make their life a game that they are
: some how going to beat. And even if you don't win, (like in certain video games) it's just
: the challenge that makes it a game. And we are
: probably all challenged. I hope I can only keep
: thinking this way and keep being around for at
: least the sake of my mom. I want to be a fighter.

: : I was on a chat today and somebody said this about suicide that i want to share: "Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem."
: : Doesn't this make sense? Life changes and changes and changes all over again. Being suicidal means we can't cope at a particular point. What we need is not death, we need new coping skills. We don't need our life to go away, just the pain.

: : K.

evry morning you wake up and make it to the end of the day, dealing with what you have to deal with, just to get up and have to deal with it again day after day, that makes you a fighter.
and that is something to be proud of.
