Hi audrey, and welcome to ALL Smile
Welcome audrey
Welcome! Big Grin
I am new here and I just read the 'warning' regarding dark thoughts and suicidal intentions. I get that. But I am curious as to whether or not we can express our thoughts about suicide as part of a thought process....like religion or anything else that people express. I mean, why is it such a taboo subject? What, exactly, are people afraid of? Since we DON'T have life's answers, we do not know for certain (unless of course, one thinks they knew everything) that it is a 'sin' or whatever makes it taboo here and everywhere else. I like having intellectual conversations, be they happen verbally or in writing. Will I be banned for asking questions?

I am serious about these questions, I'm not trying to cause problems. I want a safe place to look under rocks...you know?

We have had problems here with a very few people threatening violence to themselves and in one case to others around them. Nothing positive has ever come from any of that. There are resources listed for those that may benefit from them. That is the reason for what you have read.

Yes suicide can be mentioned. There are even a few thread on the topic. What we don't need is rants about going out and harming people or suicidal rants used as a substitute for the valid suicide resources that are listed.

Welcome.

Hi
I just registered and wanted to say hello. I see I am older than most of the posters, but I hope that I will be able to connect and find someone to talk with. I do not go out and have very little contact with anyone anymore, so this is a really nice thing to have access to. I live in North Carolina USA and I am 55 yrs. old.
Thank you.
Peace, Love, Light
