I can only speak for myself, but my suicide attempt was very impulsive. I had been thinking about it forever but the only time I acted upon it (overdose) was very fast, because I knew if I sat down and wrote letters and actually thought about what I was doing, I'd probably back out. And I just wanted to get it over with. I believe it's more common than we think to not leave a suicide note, although of course many people do.
Also, even if I did consider leaving suicide notes, it would not be in my nature to post a
"good-bye letter" to Psycho-Babble, I think that would be a horrible thing to do. I believe it would leave the other posters feeling shocked and guilty (even though they would have no reason to be)and I just wouldn't do it.
Only my thoughts...
