Life After Suicide

If you have been reading the past entries, it has been topics about suicide. September is suicide Prevention Month and I hope the topics inspire people to take initiative when it comes to mental health. Today I thought a great topic to bring to the table is life after suicide.

What do I mean? The after world? Nope. The thought process in the moment as someone is committing the act and how they felt after they survive the suicide attempt. It’s very rare people survive after trying to kill themselves. But there are a few people who thankfully lives after the act. Something that would appear as a blessing, can actually be soul crushing.

I have found a video of real-life people sharing their story on why they tried to kill themselves. How they felt after surviving it and how they kept moving forward from the negative experience. I’m hoping this video would be a wake-up call to anybody who’s thinking about committing suicide and to people who knows someone in this predicament. The more we know, the better we can adult one day at a time.

  1. Hi you follow my blog slogginthroodepression and I thank you for that , I do not know if you have read all my blogs but I am a survivor of two suicide attempts and I can say 1000 % It was soul destroying waking up ! The doctor asked how I was feeling and I replied ‘ disappointed ‘ he asked why and I told him because I was talking to him !! I’m not sure I have recovered from it and still wrestle with that demon or another failure as I put it . Thanks for the brilliant post friend keep raising awareness 🤝

    1. Yes, I have read a few of your entries. They are very insightful and deep. It’s one of the reason why I followed. Thanks for sharing your story. We sometimes don’t know it, but our story can be a positive riple affect that influence other people. And I can definitely relate to what you’re saying since I tried to do so 4 times. Every time was worse than the previous attempt. As you put it, it felt like a failure. But here we are. Still alive and trying to get by the best way possible. That’s why I say we can do it if we just “adult one day at a time” Because we need to take it day by day to get through it. I’m glad my post touched you. I hope you keep coming by, because there will be more topics on suicide for the rest of September.

    1. Hi my name is Richy and my blogs slogginthroodepression , we had a wee chat the other day and I really liked your post and I was wondering would you be offended if I copied it and put on my blog to further get the message out ? Thanks and hope your doing well .


  3. Good video. Thanks for posting it. I am on Rx. I can’t imagine my life without it. I believe it is a gift from God. I can live a productive life because of it. Suicide thinking is not an issue with me. A long time ago I told myself it was depression talking and to ignore it. It went away. I never think about it anymore. ✝💜

  4. This is such a great and heart touching video and post. I survived a suicide attempt when I was 14 and almost didn’t make it. I spent a week in ICU. Because I was being horribly bullied in school, I only wanted the pain to stop, and taking myself out seemed the only way to escape. Then in 2011, I lost my late husband to suicide and found him dead in his truck after. It was the hardest thing I ever had to go through. That was the day I really thought back to my own suicide attempt and made a tearful and solemn vow to myself and my family, telling them that they’d never have to worry about me ever making another attempt at taking my own life. It’s something I never will forget. Thank you for spreading awareness.
