Canis Lupus
Thoughts about suicide

Years of lonliness, fear and a friendless world have destroyed "Me".

To save yourself from a dark fate you first have to remove yourself from dark places. Sometimes though, you might not remove yourself soon enough. When that happens the darkness lives begins to live within you. It visits you not just in your worst of moments, but also in your best too. Dimming the light that those few occasions have to offer. It holds you and tells you that this is where your are from. That no matter how far you run or how hard you work for your release...the darkness, sooner or later, will claim you. How do I fight the greatest demon of my life's existence? When it's me that is the demon within? And it's me who feeds it so lavishly? How do I slash my suicidical warfare within?

Dear Canis Lupus,

We're sorry you feel so badly right now. It sounds as if you would benefit from talking to a caring person who is trained to help. We have three resources you could try. We hope you will contact one of them as soon as possible. You deserve to get help, and to get it sooner rather than later.

1. If you are in the U.S., call 1-800-SUICIDE any time, day or night. When you call this free number, you will be connected immediately to a caring, trained counselor in your region. The sooner you make this call, the better. (helplines worldwide)

2. If you can hold on for a few days, free anonymous crisis counseling is available by e-mail from an international charity called The Samaritans. Send an e-mail to and you will receive a caring response within 24 hours.

3. There is a website you may find helpful, called Suicide: Read This First.

You are in our prayers.
