Life is hard for me right now and I want to give up. - July 28th 2012, 05:41 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

A few days ago I had found out and was told that my best friend had committed suicide, and ever since finding out about her death I haven't eaten that much, I haven't been sleeping very much also and I've lost the will to do the things I love to do (Violin, airplane model making and biking) I also have social anxiety disorder and get bullied A LOT at school and have very few friends (her being my only friend)

I have considered (and attempted) suicide before and I'm scared and don't know who to talk to about it, I don't have a girlfriend and I'm really lonely over summer.

Please help me I don't know what to do.

Hi Matthew,

I'm really sorry about your best friend. I can't even begin to imagine what you must be going through, and I wont attempt to say I understand how you feel right now, but I want you to know that people are there for you and you shouldn't isolate yourself right now. I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss.

You said you don't know who to talk to about all of this. There is a thread here on TH which can help you find a few options. People can help you, and talking is a wonderful way to sort through your feelings and find yourself in a better position to fight. Take a look here for that thread. You don't need to have a girlfriend to have someone to talk to. Plenty of people will be happy to help you, and it's important that you don't dismiss all of your options. Try talking to someone you know. Chances are they'd rather you spoke to them than did this alone anyway.

Also, try taking a look here. I know that sometimes, especially after something as traumatic as this has happened, finding a reason to be here can be extremely difficult. But it's important to keep fighting, and this list may give you something to fight for and live for.

I'm sorry I haven't been much help, but I hope those lists give you some sort of idea as to how you can carry on. It's possible, and I'm sure your best friend wouldn't want you to give up.

Take care,
Hollie.
