Meh, possibly. I've recently tried it.

Depression goes hand-in-hand with asperger's, and suicide goes hand-in-hand with depression. You do the math.


Actually, Simon Baron Cohen did some tests in depression and found that people with aspergers, lacking the coping abilities of NTs, are at significantly higher risk for suicide.

I've had some own attempts. even as the child. learned I can't f*****g tie a noose properly and the rafters in the garage and not high enough for a good drop. things are okay at the moment, but things can go out of control rapidly for me sometimes.
