Many of us have at some point in our lives considered the situation we are in and wondered what the point of living was. Many of us may have formulated a plan of action, and some of us may have made some preparations or even attempted to do it.
Fortunately, at least for those currently reading this article, either we came to our sensors before getting too far into the plan, got help voluntarily or involuntarily, or discovered how resilient the underlying power to live actually is after making an attempt.
And that’s ok. If you try but bail, it means you are human, with functioning instincts capable of overriding your depressed state. If you try but fail, you aren’t a failure, your ability to survive is a success. Be grateful that you didn’t try a way there was no coming back from.
We have seen many suicide victims on BestGore.com. Gunshots, hangings, overdoses, and of course the troubling trend of westerns to travel to Thailand and jump from heights.
But this is an extreme. Our friend here has induced the world’s worst case of reflux by drinking concentrated hydrochloric acid. You would really have to hate yourself and desire unmitigated cruelty during your death to consider this form of suicide. That or be completely insane. Or an ice addict, as they too tend to do extreme things when off their head.
It would have been a terrible, terrible experience and I can’t help but wonder what was on this poor soul’s mind to think that death was his only option, and this was the best way to achieve it. Much of the damage would be post mortem, however I also doubt death would have come quickly. And frankly, in that situation, that suffering, that burp breath, no matter how quick, his death would not have come quickly enough.
Remember, there is always someone who cares whether you live or die. Whether it is your last root, someone you owe money to, or even a complete stranger who isn’t keen on seeing a corpse, someone cares. So before you head to the hardware to get your own cocktail of agony, ask yourself an important question. Would a living you 12 months from now be glad for any of the positive experiences between now and then? Even if it is only for one good experience, that is better than the nothingness you would be if you were dead.
