this is NOT another suicide not, just please read.
(#) CatscanFlyy 2012-01-24 12:51:40 PMI sort of feel the same, though of course if these people are for real they need all the suport and help they can get but if they are faking/tending they need to stop right now, i've had family members kill themselves and suffer from serious depression, I myself have speand weeks indoors not able to face the world anymore but suicide is a big big thing and it pulls down everyone around. It definatly isn't something teeanaged girls need to be messing around with on the internet, i find it offencive that it's treated so lightly if they're really feeling that way they need to seek the help of a profecional or a famaily member/friend a few reviews saying don't do it wouldn't be enough to stop someone going through serious depression.
Author's responseI know exactly what you mean. I didn't want to offend anybody who actually IS suicidal, but posting a note on just some fanfiction site isn't right. My best friend is and she's getting help, and I hate when everyone jokes around with suicide.
(#) ShadowSouls 2012-01-24 12:57:39 PMYou're not a bitch. But, what if someone was actually feeling really depressed and suicidal? The worst thing to tell a suicidal person that they're not gonna go through with it, and their attention seekers. Maybe a person might be faking/ seeking attention. But, everyone does want attention at some point, correct? I think what we should just do is try and convince them not to, whether they were faking it or not isn't that important, because what if they actually weren't?
I apologize for my little ramble. I was just stating my opinion.
Author's responseI know, and that's be absolutely terrible. But post after post is a little suspicious, isn't it? Suicide and depression is a serious issue, and it just annoys me when people joke about it. I mean, we all have our opinions on it.
(#) IloveMCRmy 2012-01-24 01:02:13 PMI see exactly where you are coming from. I just wish these girls or guys would realize that this is one of the main reason's MCR is around. They have been fighting for the people like this so they can find another way out, and live a the amazing life they all deserve. I've been there,a nd I know for a fact shit gets better, and there are other ways of taking out your pain. And yeah people do commit/threaten suicide cause they don't ahve that attention they need, whether its from family or some place else. Hopefully they can stick it out to see how amazing life is.
And for whoever is faking it that shits not cool.
Sorry for the ramble.
(#) MissAbbieHudson 2012-01-24 01:09:18 PMI know where you're coming from, its fucking annoying, some people are genuinely depressed and then you just get the annoying attention seekers, if you want to write a suicide note, you do it on paper for your family, not for people on ficwad. Gosh.
Okay, rant over ;)
- Sometimes it helps talking to other people, even if they are online people. I understand that seeking attention through a suicide note is a really shitty thing to do but you don't really know if the person is seeking attention or if they are suicidal. I agree with you but sometimes it just helps to vent and if Ficwad is the only place where you can find people that don't shit on you, then you should be able to use it.
(#) DisenchantedEnding 2012-01-24 01:36:12 PMI feel the exact same and I'm going to agree with every single review above, but writing things like this sometimes doesn't help the situation if it's genuine, yo'know? It just makes them feel shit. I don't know about the other ones, but I know that one of the notes was genuine because it was my best friend and.. eh, well, I dunno.
Although, a few comments from a stranger can help enough to push them away from the edge. The closer you are to someone, the less a compliment means, in my opinion. It feels like that to me. :)
But I totally agree with you. 100%.
(#) DisenchantedEnding 2012-01-24 01:37:21 PMOh, and some people don't wanna write notes to their family because they probably deem it too morbid or depressing, or perhaps they feel like no one but the people of Ficwad would care. Or maybe the feel their family wouldn't care?
Ah, sorry. Rant/essay over. XD
