What can i do?

Hi there!

i’m gonna keep this short.

so. my girlfriend just left me yesterday and she was basically the only reason i had to live. everything else seems pointless. and now that she’s gone i have this urge to kill myself again. so my question is what can i do about it? besides talking to a psychiatrist. - what can i do myself?

Medication man…

I’m sorry you are feeling this way. Try to make a list of all the people in your life right now. Make another list of anything at all that makes you even a little bit happy. It could be as simple as a favorite song, or a sunny day. Remind yourself of all of the reasons to live.

You can call or text the suicide hotline, or go on the crisis chat website. You can check yourself into the hospital, if you really think you might actually hurt yourself.



Never live just for someone else. But, even though she was temporary, think of all the reasons she was with you. Think of all you have to offer other people in your life and the next special person.
We all have people come in and out of our lives. It’s worth being here to see who comes next and how you contribute to each other.
I’ve been in love three times in my life. Once was a boyfriend who eventually accused me of being a Satan worshipper and a witch. (We both attended a pretty extreme church). The next was my first husband who ended up being a psychopath who abused me in every which way.
But the third is my husband now who is a remarkably loving and patient person.
All of this is over the course of 30 years, during all of which I’ve entertained suicide as a viable option. I can honestly say, though, that I’m glad I didn’t leave. I have a son, and a cat :blush:
My point is that it’s not over. Take the next step forward and live.


Don’t end your life, there are many many people who love and care for you and want the best for you.

You have a future with many new possibilities in it. I know break ups hurt like hell, but give it time.

Call a suicide hotline and chat to a professional about how you’re feeling . Don’t act on anything, just try try try to get through it.

Hugs and take care. Keep in touch here.


Hey @anders.16 I’m really sorry you’re feeling so sad right now. Relationship breakups are a part of life unfortunately. You’re still very young and have so much more living to do.

Please reach out for help to family, friends, or a pdoc or therapist. If you feel you are a danger to yourself, please go to the hospital.


thank you all for you replies. i have so far not found a way to cope with this yet, and i’m afraid of where i’m heading. so i’ve asked to be committed to a mental hospital. hopefully this will help me!
