Unhappy Help :/ - October 27th 2012, 05:43 AM

A lot of my friends are suicidal or depressed or have issues. It's really hard cause I want to help them. It hurts me when I can't. It hurts me a lot. I'm trying to stop SHing and being suicidal and stuff, but it's really hard. My ex stares at me a lot and offered me his partially drunk Mountain Dew.... cause I was mad at him. I cried by myself behind a pillar at an event at my school.. I'm sick of being so sad and not being able to help my friends. What should I do? Why do I still want to die?

Do you know what's causing you to feel this low and suicidal? Is it the pressure from your friends feeling low or do you think there is something else? Stress can make people feel low so it could be related to the problems with your friends. Traumatic experiences also can cause depression. I don't know if you've been through a bad experience in the past? Sometimes people have a chemical imbalance in their brains which can cause depression too. Have a good think about what you think it is.

In regards to your friends, all you can do is offer to be there for them and support them whether that's letting them talk to you about what's happening for them right now and how they're feeling or whether that's going out into town or out for lunch etc with them. But at the end of the day, there the ones who have to make changed to help themselves to feel better. You can only do so much as a friend by being there to support them.

But remember, to look after yourself too. If you honestly can't cope with being such a great support to all of your friends right now then you need to put yourself first and look after you because you're important in all of this to, you know? You can advise them to go and talk to someone else such as a parent, teacher or doctor. It's down to them whether they listen to you and take the advice that you give them or not - that's out of your control.

You can do this. I know that right now it all probably feels too hard and incredibly dark and frightening, but it's not always going to be this way, it won't last forever. Things can and they will get better but be sure to seek support for yourself too. You're not alone in this either.
