Thank you for asking, calebsfire. The Depression forum is one of the best places for this.

In addition to what FooZe said there's also a sister forum called Neurotalk that's has a little more freedom if someone is having more than ideations.

Hello,
I can understand why the PC guidelines state that. Here is my opinion, if it helps.

Saying what one feels in my opinion would be a different state of mind set than saying what one is going to be do.

To me the word feeling is a passive state of mind set (leaves room for discussing giving direction etc.), but for one to actually state that one is going to do with details etc. an action state of mind set (implies to me, already past the feeling part)

To me when one implies they are going to do, implies they are past the feeling state and now on to the action. Very scary I would think that none of us would want to underestimate this implied action and would want to direct the person to professional help.

Being in on the internet, chat room or forum requires all of us to express our emotions in written form, which is not the best form of really communicating effectively to one with the sensitivity of needing urgent and or immediate assistance. To state or mention doing implies action and I would agree that even with an implied action one should seek the attention of actually picking up the phone calling someone or go directly to someone professionally for assistance. It is too (easy) to misunderstand the mind set and emotions of one when your trying to type it and/or read it. Not the same as reaching out and communicating verbally.

Yes, you can talk about your feelings. You can say you are having a hard time, you had a really bad day and feel like killing yourself.

That talks about feelings, it is open to support.

You just can not go into detail about how you plan to do it or say I'm going to do it on X day and good bye.

That kind talk is not allowed. It is very triggering and closed off and would upset people because there is nothing they could do to help. A few pages back page 2 I think, Sabby put it really well if you want to page back and see all of her answers.

yes there are some people who feel like they want to save a person who is posting that they are suicidal. I have found many many postings by people who have posted they were ****feeling*** suicidal and many members go to bat with this person helping them to not continue forwards into the I am suicidal action plans mode.

I have also reported suicidal postings with the message ....is there any way you can help this person? so that those in authority here can find a way to help this person. that in its self is helping and possibly saving that suicidal person. Im not always in the right frame of mind to post with in suicidal feelings postings but hopefully by reporting the posting the moderators can help them in some way.
