man just call 911 and get the police to take you to a psych ward for suicide watch then claim disability and get SSI because you hear voices in your head telling you to kill yourself.

Unfortunately the emergency services tend to be quite useless with people merely feeling suicidal - they MIGHT respond well to an actual attempt, but for mere suicidal ideation (the medical term for "thinking about suicide and thinking it's a good idea") you're better off going straight to a psych.

Not to mention most people who are suicidal do not have "voices in their head" but rather a severe lack of serotonin triggered through a random biochemical glitch or from a life event - or for the truly unlucky both (for example, someone with bipolar who has a bad life event).

The nasty part about depression is it hijacks self-esteem and makes the victim believe that nobody will care (it's a common pattern to see people claim they're doing their friends and family a favour by removing themselves from the situation), when in reality most people have SOMEONE who does care and would be hurt - which is why the best approach is always to encourage people who talk about suicide to talk to their friends and family in person.

Of course some threats are just attention seeking or even plain old trolling, but from personal experience it's best to assume the threat is real and encourage people to seek help - i'd rather be fooled by a few trolls than see someone die who could have been saved, especially as i've had friends who took their own life after people thought they were joking.

There is a certain freedom in having nothing left to lose. Think what a great story it would be if you were to come back from this. Get off this forum. Get away from bitcoin for a while. There's more to life than money. Go find it. We'll be here when you get back.

Honestly, 80k is not that big an amount. You *could* just move to a different country and never come back. I don't think 80k is enough to warrant people actually coming after you. Alternatively, just declare bankruptcy.

If I was suicidal, I was disappear in Mexico, do blow and hookers then decide. Suicide can wait and it's always an option.

thinking this sort of way leads me to think that you value physical possesions over experience, love, and life itself. So you took a risk and lost, or were dealt a little bad luck, but keep in mind that which you lost is essentially meaningless in our universe. The only thing that truly matters is you, your life, your experiences, and how you as a conscious being grow in the process called life.

Learn the lesson, keep on keepin' on. This too shall pass.

Your brain chemicals are just fucked up right now. Do some blow to get some motivation then go to the hospital. The blow is essential for a quick pick me up until you get treatment.

Don't kill yourself bro. Get a part time job, cut down your expenses, recover. Don't let this get the best of you. There are much greater things awaiting you in life both good and bad. How can you appreciate the good things if you don't hit such lows throughout life? How will you face the bad things to come if you will cave so easily to something as superficial as money?

So you lost money trading and now you're suicidal?

Everybody loses at some point in life, it is how we learn.

Also most accounts of people saying they "can't afford to live" are actually "can't afford to live like i was doing". Sometimes you gotta make changes and do things you don't like to survive.

I bought a business in 2010 which failed after 2 years and lost me 120K and i just about managed to keep my house. not sure how old you are but sometimes in life you make choices which dont work out, as long as you learn a lesson then suicide is not the answer, i have a family and can work and mine bitcoin and look forward to a great future.

you need to start thinking in terms of glass half full and move on.

If you are honestly considering suicide, may I propose a "different kind" of suicide instead? Don't kill your physical body, but kill the person you have been and leave him behind completely. Do something you would have never considered doing in your "old life". Something outrageous, interesting, fantastic, mind-blowing, crazy, funny, awesome, lolzy.

Maybe follow a jam band, like people did with the Grateful Dead back in the days. Or move to a tiny island in the middle of nowhere, like Palmerston. Maybe spend the rest of your life exploring some freaky, inaccessible place, like Tsingy National Park. Or tour around the Amazon Rain Forest, drinking Ayahuasca and San Pedro with the indigenous Shamans. Become a deep sea welder and earn a shitload of money, while laughing the imminent risks of that kind of job in the face, because you are suicidal anyways. Go to a war torn nation like Afghanistan, learn the local language and teach kids how to do maths or how to program. Or do something else that excites you, these are just some examples I spontaneously came up with, there is much more to experience on this earth.

A value of a life is priceless. Their is only one you and there won't be another. I hope you reconsider and get through this. Suicide is a permanent answer to a temporary problem. I know you know better than this.

man im telling you he needs to call 911 and say he wants to kill himself. get a 72 hour hold in a psychward on a 5150. get some drugs to even out those chemical imbalances. stay on the phone with operator til they get there. if you are serious and cant talk to friends and family 3 days away from the real world its a free vacation 3 meals a day nice bed in a hospital.

trust me.

i have been there

schizophrenic

psychotic

bipolar.

i lost all my bitcoins i mined in 2011. i was mining 10  a day for 3 months. WHO GIVES A DAMN!

you do not want to end up having a psychotic episode.

This is actually the best advice so far... Just go have fun and see what happens. One day at a time. Etc.

There is so much more to life than money. While it is nice to have, once you lose it you can really discover who you are. I speak from LOTS of experience. Never invest more than you can afford (ie: your life savings). Learn from it and move forward. We all end up having to start over and we ALL leave this life with nothing. Relax, think about how fortunate you are and appreciate something like the sun on your face or being able to dial a telephone number, even a walk to the store. One day you may not have that option.
