What counts as a suicide attempt?
1 month ago · · suicide attempt,
I've stood at the edge of a third story building wanting to jump off, but not doing so due to someone interrupting (whitout them knowing what I was about to do). I've stepped into hundreds of roads thinking "Please just hit me and put an end to this", but the cars have stopped in time, or missed me, sometimes barely. I once jumped from the second floor of my home, knowing I most likely wouldn't die, but wished that I would have. I've starved myself and burned myself and harmed myself, but do any of these count as actual attempts. I just want to know what to answer when people ask me if I've ever attempted suicide, because "yes" feels like an overstatement, and "no" feels like a straight up lie.
