Speaking from my own experience of chronic suicidal ideation, and the times I've posted here about wanting to die, what I want back is an acknowledgement that other people feel that way too and have survived, and reminders that it is probably a temporary situation (that it feels so intense). And, some people express caring thoughts and wishes, and that helps too.

If it came down to the deed, I wouldn't be posting on PSB. If I had decided to do it, I'd do it. If I was really in trouble and had the impulse and did not want to go thru with it, I'd call my therapist or pdoc.

As someone else said, one gets a feel on the board for the real deal sometimes. And at that time the only thing I'd say is "go get help in real time."

I also like the term 'compassion fatigue' because that is a real phenomenon that makes me look at suicidal messages very cautiously.
