A last letter is not the same as a suicide note. I guess its to say your regrets, things you are proud of and accomplishments of others and key events in your life, asking for forgiveness, giving and asking for forgiveness, thanking and saying I love you and goodbye.
You either write it while you are healthy or when you have a serious illness.
no, not that i remember. i don’t really think about leaving this earth.
A couple. Once before I left, and was hospitalized. I had planned to leave and live on the streets and wasn’t thinking clearly at all. Was off my rocker. The next was to tell my sister how much I care about her. I was a little off in both cases. Now I’m far less sappy.
I have poetry and stories on Amazon. The dark ones kind of foreshadow my death. In my poetry book, there’s love, hope, pain, loss, and mental illness.
I’m trying to write one now, while I’m still healthy. And then I’m going to work on a letter to give my SO on our wedding day.
Yes, it is pretty sappy. I’m just morbid today.
Thinking about who I want for my proxy and adding my SO to my accounts in case something happens.
I don’t think it’s sappy in the case of leaving it for your SO. It’s a nice thing and kinda romantic.
Yup bc the Invega I was on made me so suicidal I had enough one day and just started writing a list of people to write letters for so that my suicide would be easier on them. I even had notes on what to say to each person. It’s sad but bc that poison of a medication I can’t feel that kind of sadness (right now) (hopefully it’s only temporary).
Then came my method of killing myself. I looked it up so much it seems like the car thing doesn’t quite work well, so I thought maybe if I shut myself. I work out now so I don’t feel suicidal anymore and I’m slowly but surely getting off that horrible med. I don’t regret wanting to kill myself tho, just read up about invega what it does to u even just in the short term is unlike any other ap and it makes life not worth living. It was more of a logical decision which is even worse- usually suicide is bc u can’t cope mostly with the emotions, devoid of that seemed to make me even more sure. It felt weird when I was gunna do it, It was purely the med that gave me such a low quality of life. More like a punishment it felt like. The thought u put into the last letters is really tough tho bc of all things u don’t want to miss out on anything.
yes, I wrote a last letter when I overdosed on risperdal…just about a paragraph explaining why I had to die…suicide is always a mistake and only really causes pain for years to come for those who love you…it’s not my life to take as I belong to my God. makes it easier when I think of my life that way.
