I don’t understand why there’s a hotline. If you’re suicidal, why would you call? Are you wanting a second opinion? Half joking but half serious.

"I don't believe things can get better so this is my only option, but I'm willing to be wrong. Please tell me I'm wrong" or some other solution to a problem that looks like it has no solution

As someone who just got out of the BHU for attempted suicide 8 can tell you that with me, I didnt want to die, but I felt like it was the only way out, and end to depression and other things.

Maybe as a sign? "I wanna off myself, but fuck it, I'll call and if they ignore me, that just validates my belief that everyone hates me, and if they do pick up, maybe they'll talk me into not doing it. What do I have to lose except maybe five more minutes of this bullshit lol"

A majority of suicides have at least one prior attempt.
