Sometimes I think people would prefer that when I get intensely distressed and want to OD that I just not talk about OD and just OD and not tell anyone at all. Then people would never know how distressed I was. Sometimes I think people would prefer I just disappear one day from suicide rather than write that I am distressed and thinking of suicide and get help from people.
Of course I would rather not feel those things at all, but the fact is that I do feel them. I DO have those thoughts. What am I supposed to do about them? Suppress them? Act on them and never tell a soul?
Would people seriously prefer that I get really upset, tell no one about it, OD, tell no one about it and die?
