Warning Signs of Suicide


Talking about suicide.
Statements about hopelessness, helplessness, or worthlessness.
Preoccupation with death.
Suddenly happier, calmer.
Loss of interest in things one cares about.
Visiting or calling people one cares about.
Making arrangements; setting one's affairs in order.
Giving things away.




This is an excerpt from my journal in 1995. I cannot save everyone, nor can I be there for everyone who thinks that nobody cares. I wanted you to see this, because it shows that I have been where you may be now, and I am still here (meaning that I am still alive and kicking, btw.. I am past this point in my life now and very glad I didn't give up..). Life is always hard, and you get through it and it will make you a better person, even if you don't think it will now, or you think that your problems are all your own. It will not be easy. But you will look back in 10 years...and realize all the things you would have missed if you had committed suicide....

There are very few words...which can comfort
a severely suicidal person. These are a few things that may help if you know someone who needs to talk...a few suggestions i've found that may help as well...
* I hope there will be something I can say to you now, that will help you find a reason to stay alive for another day - find a reason to bear the unbearable pain until relief comes.
* Find something or someone to live for, for a little while
* Let someone help you through and beyond this horrible, but temporary time in your life.

Just remember...

*You can always kill yourself - l a t e r ---Just don't do it now.
* Put it off - for another hour, another day.
* Give yourself a chance to get help.
* If you had cancer, or a heart attack, you would suffer then too - in a different way - but you would let it hurt till you could get well.
* If you can decide to let it hurt, without acting on the impulses for a little longer, with the right help, you could feel so much better that one day...

I may be setting myself up for a giant family sized helping of stress, but I would like some volunteers to join me here...people who don't mind talking to others about their suicide/cutting problems, and trying to help them through it. If you are interested, please put your name below, because I can see that there are more than just a few people who desperately need someone who cares, and I can't turn away from them even if I wanted to, so I am going to need some really good help..If you are quickly discouraged, or cannot listen, or think you have a one message answer to give to people that will miraculously cure a persons desire to die, then don't bother joining. It does not work that way.. this is something that will perhaps bring you into a world of stress and heartache that you might not be able to handle..and sometimes.. it will be time consuming...working back and forth with people, trying as best as you can to help them see that their world is not better off without them. I will set the names in two categories.. Suicide and Cutting. If you rather help one or the other, put your name with the corresponding title, so that anyone who visits this wiki will know who they can contact for help. There is alot of pain in Elftown... I hope this works even for a few people...and remember.. that you cannot save them all.. but you can sure as hell try...[TheRogue]


People in Elftown you can message if you need someone to turn to


WYAA Suicide Volunteers

WYAA Cutting Volunteers



If you support the cause, Help by volunteering, or want to help, feel free to grab a banner for your house

WYAA Banners






If you are there, in that dark place with nowhere else to turn....remember that you have people who love you...remember Elftown and think of the people who's lives you touched, and will never be the same without it, who care about you, even if you are miles away, because they do. I care. And I don't have to know you to do that. I know where you are, and where you've been. Think of someone else's pain, before you give in to your own...

2008-01-17 [Eloura]: I'm here.

2008-08-02 [~Valkyrie~]: Do I need to ask permission to put my username up as a volunteer, or should I just put it up on the wiki?

2008-08-02 [~Valkyrie~]: Nevermind, I went back and reread the wiki

2008-08-22 [i am jack's box]: nice.... sad to say that i haven't been around here, but i am glad that my creation of Anti-Suicide wiki 5 years ago has evolved to this. i know i might get spammed like all hell.... but if anyone needs to talk, my number is 773-401-2208 in the states if you are able to call in the US. Don't fret about time, my phone is always here

I am jack's box

2008-08-22 [Eloura]: nice to see your coming back though

2008-08-22 [Akayume]: Ugh. Depression is.... tiring. Especially when it comes and goes. :/ But what doesn't kill only makes one stronger, right? (:

2008-08-22 [Eloura]: *huggles you* It is tiring and supposedly it makes you stronger.. i'm still looking for that proof though

2008-08-22 [Akayume]: Same here. :/ *hugs back*

2008-08-22 [~Valkyrie~]: Right. :)

2008-08-23 [i am jack's box]: You know what else is tiring? being busy! One thing that got me out of my rut was simply doing something active. Like.... I love judo, and just wrestling someone for like 10 min even, releases so much stress. Endorphines start running and I swear you feel sooooooooo much better. That and moshing..... I should probably start a list of things to do.....

2008-08-26 [*~Sora~*]: I miss karate very much. My mom said I had to start paying for my classes if I kept going, but I didn't have the money so I had to quit!*crosses arms* I just got my blue stripe too, but I couldn't go to the ceremony to get it.

2008-08-27 [i am jack's box]: any clubs at the school? for me, it ranges for like 20-60 bucks a semester. from shinkendo to karate

2008-09-02 [*~Sora~*]: I'm graduated now...but even then they didn't have many clubs that interested me *shrugs*

2009-02-13 [TheRogue]: I am so glad to wander by here and see it is still going strong.. thank you everyone for helping me keep this wiki active. It means alot to me.

2009-02-15 [Janouk]: I know that back in the days I thought it was a good wiki. Good initiative.
