  • Hey Guest,

    We made a Twitter thread regarding the Kenneth Law situation on Twitter at this link here if you would like to take a look. It shows that the journalists covering this case aren't objective and clarifies our position on the matter. If you would like to view the thread: Click Here
  • Hey Guest,

    The BBC, which have harassed our founders among others, is now actively promoting a seller along with the SN method in their news article here.

    The same journalists that have criticized this forum for promoting resources and are actively campaigning for its shutdown are now promoting these sellers and the SN method in this article for all to see. Academia has pointed this out, but they continue to promote the method along with making false claims regarding this website in the name of "investigative journalism" while ignoring the active harassment of our staff and previous founders.

    We have made a post here to debunk this nonsense and the false claims that the BBC has laid out in their article.

Have any of you had good experiences with therapy, out- or inpatient? Do you think everyone should try getting help before considering suicide?

I've had cbt twice before. It didn't help me. It's good for people with temporary issues which they can talk through with someone. For anyone with long-standing mental issues, it doesn't help. That's my opinion of it anyway. For other people it might be different.

I am unable to do therapy because I shut down, but I know people on both sides. I know people who did therapy and it didn't work, but I also know people who are doing pretty good now thanks to it.

I've also had my fair share of treatment, so far without success.

I might give it another try though. Looks like I won't stick to my ctb "deadline" (July 31th)

I've had therapy before and I found the sessions to be pleasant but ultimately inconsequential to solving anything.

I'm currently receiving systematical therapy and two other kinds I don't know the name of in English, for me it's to early to tell if it's working since I just went trough the whole diagnostic period, and just started it. I do think you should consider therapy or any other kind of help before suicide, that way you can at least say you have tried everything. Though I'm not sure if sticking around long enough to see if it helps works for all of us since we're all different.

I tried CBT once before about 5 years ago but gave up after 6 weeks as it seemed to be just "how to recognise when a thought is untrue", but I can already do that. The problem is that they come so thick and fast still anyway that no amount of rationalisation can remove them from my mind.

I just started another course and this time I am enjoying the sessions mostly because I find the therapist pleasant to talk to. I'm not however that convinced it is going to really help me. Also, due to my current severe suicidal thoughts they are considering pausing the therapy until I'm in a "better position" for it, in case it worsens things.

I can kind of see what they're getting at but honestly it's the only part of my week I actually look forward to right now.
