When people say this do they mean that they literally were ready to jump, noose around the neck, tied to the ceiling beam, saved my life
Edit: oops you wrote changed. But guess question stands for people who say that. It gets thrown around lot. And heaps for the wonder years which I find odd.
i don't know if i was entirely suicidal, but when i was 20 and the girl i loved continuously broke my heart into pieces, i wanted to just disappear, or drink until i couldn't function. screaming TTTYG at the top of my lungs helped a lot.
