Hi Drew,

I've noticed you've posted in this forum a fair bit, and plenty of people have responded trying to help you. Since you're still struggling, I assume that what they have suggested is not working for you, in which case I think it's about time you start looking elsewhere for support and help. That's not me saying we're not here for you, we definitely are! But I think it might be time you look towards professionals for their help, because at the end of the day they are trained to help and deal with what you're going through, and I feel at this point, the more help you can get from people who specialise in this area, the better. Nobody here wants you to feel this way, and we have tried to help you, and we will continue to try, but you have to want to help yourself. Giving up is not the way to do that, and it really helps nobody. I understand you've been struggling for a while, and I won't even begin to try to imagine how difficult this has been for you, but it's no reason to stop fighting. You NEED to keep fighting, because in a few years time, when, hopefully, you're on the mend and well on your way to recovery, you'll be proud of yourself for not giving up. I promise you, it's so worth it. I know it might seem like recovery is impossible, but it's not in any way, shape or form. It's totally possible, but it takes commitment, hard work, time, and a hell of a lot more fighting from you.

I'm sorry you find this so hard to deal with, but don't give up. Killing yourself wont help, you have to keep going. The road still has a long way left yet, so don't assume you're at the end. People can help you, but you have to try and help yourself at the same time. It's hard, but it's worth it.

Take care,

❤ Nana ❤

Hi there,

I agree with what Hollie has said. I too, have seen you post alot here but this is clearly getting you no where so maybe now is a good time to start getting help from somone else, from someone who specalises in mental health. We can be here and we can listen to you and we can offer our advice but its clearly not enough help for you right now. And there are people who can help and support you more than we can.

I dont know whats going on for you or whether there is something specific that is bothering you but if you want to talk to me, I will still try my best to help you if that is what you want. I know that sometimes we can feel so low that suicide seems the best way out but you feeling this was is not going to last forever; suicide will. And you have so much more to live for and so much to experience. If you set yourself goals and keep a good mind set as well as not only listening to the advice that people give to you but putting that advice into actions, you'll get there.

I know its hard but you can beat this.

Hi Drew,
I know you may think this is only option you have. Trust me it's not. I know what it feels like to not know where your heading in life. You have so much to live for. I know this sounds cliche ,but I truly mean it . Message me if you need to. Im here for you.

Remember all the sadness and frustration and let it go, let it go.

Honey please don't do it. There are plenty of people willing to help.
If you can't get to anyone, go to an emergency room!

Some Riot - Elbow

A friend of mine grows his very own brambles
They twist all around him 'til he can't move
Beautiful, quivering, chivalrous shambles
What is my friend trying to prove?

...I think when he's drinking he's drowning some riot
What is my friend trying to hide?

...And it's breaking my heart to pour like the rain
Brother of mine, don't run with those fuckers
When will my friend start singing again?
When will my friend start singing again?

Drew, I think you should really try to seek professional help with this. Don't give up. I know you're hurting, but you can get through this.

You can always contact me to talk about anything!
Proud to be myself.

Need a hug? Please take one!

Hi Drew,

I agree with the others that I think it may be time for you to try and get some professional help. Don't give up. I know that I can't even imagine what you may be feeling and going through right now but you have to remember that things will always get better. Suicide is final. These feelings and things going on right now though are passing and won't be final. I have faith in you and I know you are stronger than this. Like some of the others said, if you need someone to talk to you can always PM me. Keep your head up. You can get through this.

Please feel free to PM me. I love to help others, and can be an ear to talk to, a shoulder to cry on, or a face to scream at. <3
