“Building A Life Worth Living: A Memoir by Marsha M. Linehan”; The suicidal mind

“A suicidal person is like someone trapped in a small room with high walls that are stark white. The room has no lights or windows. The room is is hot and humid, and the boiling heat of the floor of hell is excruciatingly painful. The person searches for a door out of life worth living but cannot find it. Scratching and clawing on the walls do no good. Screaming and banging bring no help. Falling to the floor and trying to shut down and feel nothing gives no relief. Praying to God and all the saints brings no salvation. The room is so painful that enduring it for even a moment longer appears impossible; any exit will do. The only door out the individual can find is the door of suicide. The urge to open it is great indeed.”
