I think that crying wolf IS crying out for attention, and that's not a bad thing. I mean, isn't that really what we all want in life - the attention from others, knowing that people actually care? But it does obviously present a problem here if the suicidal ideation is more than ideation and is actually impending, and I don't think that there is much of a way to know what's really going on for the person. It's unfortunate, but as my former therapist said once "if someone really wants to kill themself, they will". I wonder about people posting suicide notes, because it seems like they are reaching out and in some ways must want an intervention of some sort.

Anyway. I feel the same as Gracie - that I would not go so far as to post a suicide note here, although I have in the past discussed my "ideation" and chronic struggle with suicidal thoughts.
