I’ve posted before. Feeling worse every day for years, but really feel at the end now as not bothering getTing out of bed , isolating myself, can only see comfort in ending it all. Feel a burden to my lovely family, arrested by police for trying to get rid of suicidal thinking, my story only told in a dreadful way all over papers and internet and tv. Humiliation shame . This is the cause of many suicides. Seeing professionals but they have made things worse.
probably my last post here.
seems like lots of teenagers, but I am older and a doctor
i hope this is not the end but run out of hope now
Who are you really? It occurs to me you could be anyone, male or female, impersonating someone off old news/internet whose details many of us can bring up on the www. Just a thought.
That's what I was thinking too - no proper answers about themselves only repeating the publicity piece. Something not genuine.
Of course - this site is wide open to trolling and cyber bullying. More than any other forum. Because it is run by neurotypicals and also - the NAS number as a default username. WTF???
Im sure I’ve been trolled by a few ‘numbers’ and I’ve only been here a short time.
Those threads where the OP vanishes after one post and all the genuine users go round in circles answering and arguing when the original poster, who’s just a NAS0001 has no intention of replying or even coming back.
Serously MODs and site owners. You really need to get with it
Well put, 00000000 I have been trying to constrain myself from intervening. I always respond to posters who express suicidal thoughts, if I am able.
Given the known vulnerabilities of the autistic community, the OP has crossed the line from appropriate to to inappropriate.
Dr., I see you have a history of threatening suicide. This is a forum that always tries to help those at a low point in their lives. Hence my initial posts. I have come to the conclusion that your talk of the dark web and police corruption reflect badly on you. You are exploiting our vulnerabilities for your own ends. I find that shameful.
Thanks for not shouting me down Wavey. I did not type my replies on a whim. Depression and mental health problems are a serious issue, and I wouldn’t normally be so direct with someone. Please don’t us let one incogito ruin it for others. Could even be computer generated for all I know. Lack of response from MODs after a few days seemed highly irregular too. Normally they send all the helpline numbers to someone feeling suicidal. They cannot tell us who someone really is, but I believe they recognise true need when there.
And serious mental health issues when present and out of control are best dealt with by experts in that field. I for one have come here to enable myself, and to support others. Suicidal thoughts are still important to be able to discuss. Members should still be able to come here for support. Please nobody be deterred by my comment on this one thread.
I don’t think anyone will be deterred by your comment. This case has dubious undertones. You are just safeguarding the community, and dispensing good advice.
As someone still recovering from a suicide attempt, I always answer, I know support can be vital.
Even answers to trolls can be helpful, because real people will read our responses and the subsequent conversation and may get some useful information or even emotional support from the community discussion.
So I say, who cares if a poster is a real person, or and NT or and ND or an automaton or HAL or Roomba? It is the quality of the question that matters.
