Default Avoidant Personality Disorder and Suicide

I was curious as to whether anyone with AvPD or any type of Social Phobia has ever seriously considered suicide before. I've been thinking of it more and more my Social Phobia isn't the only problem but it the root of my problems if anyone has had thoughts of suicide I'd like to hear from you if only to know I'm not alone.

I don't have a personality disorder but I do have ADHD, Aspergers & SA. I hadnt had suicide thoughts in a really long time, but recently I've had a lot of stress and they've popped up again. I have kids now & wouldnt dream of actually doing it, but goes to show, they still pop up when things are rough. You are definitely not alone

I do very occasionally. Usually when there is something bothering me more than usual, and when I get hit by depression. I only get depressed occasionally. I think suicidal thoughts can be strangely comforting. It gives a way out of thing if they really do become to much. I've never been as far as to act on these feelings though. Thankfully they don't last too long.

Yes, of course.
At one stage it got so bad that it was on my mind for many months, everyday, all day. I kept thinking of all the ways there were to do it... contemplating it... but somehow I'm still here. I got better, and then I got worse again.
Now I wish I could go to sleep, never wake up.
"I'm tired..."

But the doctor will just tell me to medicate.

It don't always count it as suicide, but I often think about throwing everything out the window and becoming a vagrant. Maybe like Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins.

Definitely. All the time. It will probably happen, unfortunately.

Several bouts with suicide, more than I can count really and one very serious and almost fatal. The long-term damage I've caused my body too is yet undetermined and will likely shorten my life. Don't do it. Thinking is one thing but anything else isn't worth it if you're going to change your mind or feel differently about it later and we always do especially as we get older and learn better ways of coping with the stresses and also find out that life isn't so bad and actually very wonderful if we can only make it to that stage in our development. It is all worth it in the long run. It doesn't have to be as painful, either, as we make it.

I would hope no one would go to this length. If you are alone in the world (no friends, no family) then I can understand but to kill yourself and leave people to morn over you is about as egotistical as one can get.

It isn't egotistical to want to end your pain. And in my case I didn't have anyone who cared so there was no one for me to think of who wanted or needed me which more caused me to fall apart and end up doing what I did.
