Do you mean this?
[quote=“Lady Eva, post:13, topic:8770”]Okay, if you’re having thoughts of hurting yourself, it is important that you discuss them with someone who is qualified to help, such as a crisis helpline in your country. Please visit this link to find the appropriate number:
If you feel that you may be an immediate danger to yourself, please call your local emergency number or go to your local hospital emergency room right away. If you are unsure of the right number to call, please visit this link and call the number next to the country where you are located:
This forum cannot assist you if you feel this way, so please seek help from a medical professional if that’s where you’re at right now.[/quote]
Here are some additional contacts:
US: 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255)
US LGBTQ Youth (the Trevor Project): 1-866-488-7386
US Veterans Crisis Line: 1-800-273-8255 (press 1)

Almost every country has a similar crisis line and people who are waiting to hear you out, and help as much as possible.
This is also very thought-provoking, especially for anyone dealing with shame over feeling, or having felt, that their life had become unliveable: http://www.metanoia.org/suicide/
Sometimes I get PMs from people who are very distressed, and I’ve been through some very tough times myself when I was in my 20’s, with clinical depression and adverse life circumstances, I mean I KNOW firsthand what it’s like to feel at the end of yout tether, battery life down to zero, no hope and no clear way out, and reaching for anything that might help.
For that reason, I feel it IS very important to make sure people have somewhere to turn, and that they get appropriate help, by making sure people have these links.
So yes, for anyone having some kind of serious crisis, feeling really hopeless, please for the love of all that’s holy AND (because, this forum!) UNHOLY, get some help.
I’ve been there, and I now have a flourishing, happy, successful life, plenty of love and fulfilling things in it, and goals and plans for the future, and beyond my own lifetime, which (to answer the first part of your question Ozraga) I described in my personal “manifesto”: Theogenesis: Becoming A Living God.
^ That’s my goal folks - literal godlike ascent for myself, of course, and also all humans who desire it and are capable of bringing what it takes to the table.
The old era of slavery to a single “God” and its annointed puppet men is OVER - we have the power now.
And if anyone thinks that’s a cult, you’re welcome to send me my limos and shit, of course, maybe even a coterie of besotted young movie stars (Matt Smith will do for starters!) but meanwhile, I’ll be busy working away in relative privacy, and peace, and quiet…
What do I love about the people here? Solid friendships as well as passing moments of inspiration, formed from a similar aspirational sense of staking out new territory, being able to be brave, explore what was once forbidden and secret, speak goals freely without having to conform to any old dead dull orthodoxy.
We are each the gods of our own creation, and every new person who joins is taking that first step towards a better future.
