That's something that needs to be discussed where you won't be interrupted. Perhaps a walk in the park or if that doesn't work for you, maybe go for coffee or somewhere neutral. If the person that saved you doesn't suspect how close to suicide you were then it will come as quite the shock Redbeard is perfectly correct in telling you to go to a quiet place where you won't be interrupted. So glad you are better and feel life is really worth living! Good for you and thank God for the person that helped you.

What do you do when you have a controlling boyfriend and hes suicidal?

I would say that you need to tell someone. Suicide is not a joke, it is very real. If he has threatened suicide, you have to tell someone who can get him the help that he needs, like a parent or counselor. Once you have done that I would say for your sanity, you need to get out of that relationship, it does not sound healthy at all. Find someone who loves and appreciates you but lets you be who you are and does not threaten to kill themselves. Best of Luck

How do you tell someone you want to commit suicide?

The best way to tell someone you are thinking about suicide, is to say the words to them. To suffer with the thoughts and feelings alone will bring more harm to you.

If you cannot bring yourself to talk to someone you know, call your local suicide hotline or try these numbers: 1-800-SUICIDE / 1-800-784-2433; Call 1-800-273-TALK / 1-800-273-8255.

Nothing can happen, if they are thinking about it. If they tell someone in the hospital where they are, then the hospital staff will have a duty of care to look after you and ensure you do not act on your thoughts. So if you do feel like this it is ALWAYS best to tell someone else what you are thinking, ensuring of course it's an adult you tell.
