Is there a way to send delayed messages to people on social media?

Is there a way to send delayed messages to people on social media? That way people would not find out my suicide plan until it is too late. Do not try to talk me out of it. I don't want to get punished for things I cannot control any more.

    Hey Kate,

    I can really clearly hear that you're going through an incredibly difficult and painful time so really wanted to celebrate the bravery it takes to reach out and express those kinds of feelings and thoughts.

    Thanks so much @Dandelion for your great suggestions for support and I just want to reiterate how important it can be to reach out to them - there are so many people out there that want to help you stay safe and to find ways to cope and improve the way you're feeling - keep going Kate <3
