i don't think i can do this. - September 29th 2012, 04:42 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

i don't want to do this anymore.
i honestly feel like i don't have anybody.
i don't feel like i have any reason to go on.
i'm tired of fighting.
i can't tell anybody.
i can't even tell anybody how depressed i've been recently.
how it's a fight to get myself out of bed anymore.
how all i want to do is sleep because that's the only thing that brings me any relief.
how i put on a fake smile and act like i'm happy but most of the time i'm just trying to convince myself i'm okay and it works for an hour or so.
i really just can't do this anymore.
my group of friends is great, but i feel like i've stressed out my best friend so much with this and he honestly cant handle it anymore...so i don't know what to do
like i flip out over little stuff like tonight i told my best friend i loved him and he didn't respond....and now i'm freaking out.
like i can't control myself anymore.
i don't know what to do, i'm just trying to make it through the weekend.
the only people like i feel like i can trust with my problems are my best friend and one of my professors.
i can't help that i can't talk to anybody else.
and i don't know what to do about it.
i need somebody.
because i legit feel like i might do something stupid.

please help.

all i want is a place to call my own and
mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone,
you know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.

You're doing exactly what you ought to be doing--taking things one day at a time. For tonight, try to just calm down; occupy yourself if you have to. Watch a movie you've never seen or read a book, listen to music--anything to keep yourself from dwelling.

And in the morning, try talking to your friend again, if that's an option. Doing something drastic will only compound the problem. Being that you're over eighteen, I'd advise you to find a counselor/therapist. Most universities have a program for their students that provides free, walk-in counseling.

Just stay calm and keep talking on here if you have to, I'm sure there are people here who will talk you through the night.

Don't, it'll get better and it'll be okay. Just because your best friend didn't respond doesn't mean he doesn't love you too, it just might be a lot to process at the moment. I'm sure he doesn't mind helping you out with your problems, he's probably just sad because you're sad, he wants you to be happy. Suicide isn't the answer, you'll be leaving him behind. He'll be terribly depressed and in so much guilt everyday thinking "what if"... "What if I could have done something" "why". You are loved. Don't do it, you ARE worth something even when you don't think you are, you are strong. We love you.

You can VM/PM me if you need me. It'll be okay, just hang in there and things will get better hun.
