20 Bizarre Suicide Notes

These suicide notes were gathered at the conroners’ offices by a suicidologist/psychiatrist who asked to be anonymous. He edited identifying details out of the compiled manuscript, and we changed the names. But the text of each letter plus the age and sex given are real. All these people did kill themselves. Were they ambivalent about it? About half the hundred of so letters we saw seemed to have some element of doubt.

  2. what kind of bothers me, is that none of these seem bizarre to me; i understand where these people are coming from.

  3. Julia,

Sometimes u have to remember the people u leave behind are gona be really hurt. even if its just one person that cares about u. The people that hates u will be happy.

Our society has a long way to learn how to look at sucide. People have know idea the pain people are in. Example let someone run over your foot with a truck, then tell you it’s not bad you will be alright. I pray for the people who have died and are still suffering.
