Fighting suicidal urges

It appears-unsurprisingly, given the topic of this Forum- that quite a few people are or have been seriously suicidal. So I just thought I'd share the following practical tip on how not to go through with it: Bear in mind that a loved one is going to have to come down to the morgue and identify the body. Try to picture that scenario in your mind. I believe that, while many suicides do care a great deal about the impact that their death will have on their families, etc., they think mostly in terms of a long-term impact (and thus come up with things like "They'll get along without me"), but fail to take into account the immediate emotional devastation that their act will precipitate. I once saw a picture of a guy who had blown his own head off with a shotgun, and was thinking about how I'd be hating life if that was one of my relatives or friends and I had to see the corpse. Sometimes my thoughts tend to wander towards the contents of my gun cabinet, but then I think about that and it passes.
