So this is how I came to peace with my first attempt. I thought if I donated my organs at least something good can come out of it. I was unsuccessful clearly and am now more concerned about CTB than risking failure to do something that probably won’t happen anyway.
It will depend on which country you’re in. In the UK, there’s a coroner involved in cases of suicide, and there’s an inquest to investigate the circumstances so it really slows down the process (but not always). If you are found with life-threatening injuries, and die in the Intensive Care Unit, your organs may be suitable for donation (as they’re mechanically kept going by machines). There was a case a few years ago where a young girl was found hanging but not dead, and died in hospital. She donated 6 organs I think. HOWEVER, there’s a chance you’ll be ‘saved’. So it’s not very full proof.
You need to be found quite soon, and most methods are ruled out. Some people who die by drowning become organ donors, but that is quite rare. In general less than 3% of deaths result in organ donation, and especially not those that occur outside a hospital setting. Most out of hospital organ donors are from motor vehicle accidents, but that is a very unpredictable way to go.
Interestingly, the number of organ donors from various drug overdoses have increased significantly over the years (in America I think, largely due to the opioid epidemic, not sure globally) although the kidneys and liver are often discarded. Also a lot of the time your organs aren’t viable for donation, so don’t count on it
Potentially gunshot to the head might work, and is a common source of organ donation, because your heart keeps pumping after you’re brain-dead (I think) so your organs don’t die.
Neck stabbing victims make good organ donors sometimes. What I personally tried to do was cut the carotid artery in my neck near enough to a hospital to be found quickly, but too late to be saved. Ideally I would have stumbled closer almost dead, so my organs survived but I didn’t. Had a note ready with my organ donation card. However, despite carefully studying neck anatomy, it’s a lot harder to access than you would want or imagine. My (Swiss army) knife wasn’t sharp enough to cut the way a scalpel does. You may feel your pulse but without actually stabbing yourself you probably won’t be able to do it and I knew I wasn’t going to able to stab myself in the neck, after realising trying to cut would be unsuccessful. I factored in that it would be super painful and probably impossible without anaesthesia but thought I would be able to bear it if I was quick (and it wouldn’t be worse than the mental anguish), but a paper cut makes me cry. It would also have been VERY messy in terms of blood everywhere but I was hoping to minimise that by ‘plugging’ the incision with an empty water bottle to contain the blood but not stop the flow. I was also VERY scared of being unsuccessful and ending up surviving with debilitating brain damage, because I would not want to live like that. Anyways, it was a silly plan.
Sometimes tissue donation is possible where organ donation isn’t, but I wouldn’t be too hopeful of either if your main goal is to CTB. Sending love and light your way❤️
