Hello there

I'm sorry to hear that things are a little rough for you right now. I am glad that you've come to us here at Teenhelp for some help and support.

You say you have felt this way before. Can I ask if you are aware of what triggered you feeling this way in the past and what helped you to feel better? Has anything happened recently that has upset you or caused you distress? It might be really good if you can try and figure out any triggers so that we know what is causing you to feel this low and then you can work and feeling better.

If you click here, there is a list of reasons to live. You mentioned feeling suicidal and so I thought it might be a good idea if you were to look at this list so that if you feel suicidal you can see all the reasons you have to live. You can even make your own list too.

If there is anything that's making you feel low that you're aware off, you're more than welcome to talk to us about it. Sometimes having some support can be really helpful, you know? Have you spoken to your parents or perhaps another trusted adult such as a teacher? These people care about you and will be able to support you. Can I ask why counselling isn't an option now?

I know this is hard for you but keep your chin up, you can do this,

"Only in the dark, can you see the stars..."

Hi there

I'm sorry you are feeling like this right now.

Have you tried talking to anyone about how you feel?
I know you said you are not sure exactly what's wrong but sometimes subconsciously things are there that are bothering us and we just bottle them up. If you talk to someone about how you feel, and anything that has happened lately that may have caused you to feel this way then it might give you some sort of insight.
