Unhappy Just need some advice. - September 6th 2012, 02:20 PM

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.

I'm in year 10 this year, and I'm already starting to feel the pressure of school, life, family and friends. Unfortunately, more so than Id prefer. I started of feeling just a bit blue from time to time, then I started getting angry and distant to the people around me. The smallest and most pethetic things upset me. And a few weeks ago, I started to get really depressed. I keep thinking that there is no place in life for me, that I'm being selfish letting myself live in a world that doesn't need me. I see no beauty in myself, always covering my face with make-up so I could at least try and be happy with what I see in the mirror. I have no future, nothing i can do with my pathetic excuse of a life. But then, I started getting ideas about self harming. I mean, who's miss me when I was gone? It was a way out from the pain and suffering I feel everyday. The other night I was lying in bed, staring at the roof, I knew there was a butchers knife in the drawer from when mum cooks. I thought too myself, if I slid it into my heart, It would be so easy just to slip away. So damn easy.
I finally told my mother today how I felt, she's scared that I might take my life over night. I also have a undiagnosed illness in my limbs that have been free effecting my mood.

I want to be happy. But I need a good solid reason to stay on this earth before that'll happen.
What do I do? Who can I go too for help? I know I shouldn't feel this way...

If your family can support you as much as possible, that's always good.

Also, your school should have counsellor who you can see free of charge - your pastoral manager / head of year / [whatever you call that role] can let you know when they come in.

Finally, we're not an alternative to people in real life, but there are loads of people here on TH who have experienced similar feelings, and can talk to you.
Feel free to PM me if you want to talk to me at any time.

Skittlify me up...
