Thinking of suicide by train?
Not all suicide attempts by train end up successful and you may end up like me, an amputee.
I was depressed and psychotic, and after only 2 days on the streets having (left my regular life behind) I decided to end it.
Trains and Amputees.
I broke my legs jumping down onto the tracks, then got caught up under the wheels of the train. The train had to be reversed to free my body. I broke some bones, had my leg amputated, and was in hospital for over 3 months.
I have difficultly using a prosthetic leg (because the train cut it off so high) and have to use crutches (or a wheelchair) to get around.
Even if you have the courage to commit to suicide and are not deterred by the pain, you should consider the consequences for survival as many serious suicide attempts fail.
By far the most painful experience I have felt in my life is phantom pain. Phantom pain is pain in the missing limb and it started soon after I came out of my coma (in hospital) and continued when I was discharged from hospital.
Please try a number of humane and appropriate actions before attempting suicide.
