Drew, this is not the way. You've been through so much and it's so bad to give up now. Please go to the hospital or call 911. They can help you, offer support, offer help/guidance. You're worth it.

Drew,

We haven't talked at all, but I've seen some of your posts on the forums, and it seems like you're going through a hard time, and have been for a while. You have been through some things that I could not imagine myself experiencing, let alone making it out up to this point.

Why are you giving up? Why, after all this time of survival? Don't you believe your life has some sort of purpose to it? How would your beloved lost ones feel knowing that you want to give up? They would *want* you to keep *fighting* and come out of this stronger than you could ever fathom. Please, stop giving up. If you truly end this, you may or may not see them, and you may or may not just become another tragedy, another statistic, and another memory. Do these people that have passed want that? Why would they ever want that? It's hurtful that you would carry on your own life in mourning of theirs- that the sole purpose of your life would now be to suffer because of injustice beyond belief. Please agree with me, you know none of the past should have happened. Those are the types of things you see on the news, not in your own life. Please believe that- I lost somebody in the Sandy Hook shootings in December.

Drew, some people may coddle you on here, and others are going to ignore what you're saying. It hurts us, and it hurts the ones you've lost when you give up like this. You have so much to live for- to carry on their legacies and make their stories heard- to make sure *they're* not just a statistic and a memory, and in order to do that, *you* cannot become a statistic and a memory. I ask that you please connect with somebody outside of TeenHelp, by that I mean a mentor, a member of the clergy, your neighbor, a doctor, anybody you can remotely trust. I know that speaking up is the hardest part- just give yourself 20 seconds of insane courage, just to *say* something, that you're hurting, and I promise good things will come out of it. You seem afraid of the unknown- well ending your life is the epitome of the unknown. Don't let it be that way, Drew. Talk to somebody. Don't be a statistic.

I don't understand why anyone would not want to live anymore, I mean I know what it feels like...but it's something i'm constantly trying to figure out. I mean, we all go through similar feelings and problems. We all go through similar battles. We may be different people, but trust me, we all go through the same or similar feelings. But, honestly, even when you feel stuck.. you feel like nothing is going to ever get better.. it does, it might not be in the way that we want it to be.. but it still gets better in its own way. we find ways to cope. even when you feel stuck, life is still moving forward. My lowest point was summer 2011, I was in bed everyday.. all day.. I could barely move.. everything made me feel sick.. everyone made me feel sick. I made myself feel sick.. I didn't want to be alive anymore. dealing with loss, sucks. But here I am, a few years later, alive and still breathing. I would have never guessed that things would have changed.. but they did. Most of the time, it feels like nothing changes, but then a year passes and I look back.. and things have changed. most of my problems, especially the minor ones that I thought would never go away.. are just gone. because its all in the past.. don't get me wrong, I still feel sad when I look back...but, I moved forward.. life moved forward. but I value the good times and good memories that have impacted me.. and accepted how things are and will be. but if I can move forward, I believe anyone can. I know its hard, especially when your mindset is constantly thinking about whats wrong with you and what's wrong with the world.. But sometimes, you just need to change the way you look at things..Sometimes you need to focus on what's right instead of what's wrong..surround yourself with the littlest things that do make you happy. I know that can be extremely hard to do when you're going through a tough time.. but there is always good within the bad, and bad within the good. and what's how it's always going to be. but, time changes everything, there are always opportunities.. for change.. good change.. life is full of possibilities and opportunities. I never believed that before.. but I do now, since I somehow overcame any obstacles that came my way. I think life is the best thing we were given.. and we shouldn't trash it and give ourselves away. as unhappy as some things may make us, we should always fight through them.. there's always a way to get through.. there's always a new path to go.. sometimes our minds just get clouded with how awful things are.. that we don't take the time to value and appreciate the little things that are good. anyway, I know may not understand from a specific persons view point, especially since I don't know you, your life, and your past...and I don't even know if a stranger cares about how I think or feel.. or if anything i'm going to say is going to help in anyway.. but i'm trying.. since we all have a story.. or stories.

I'm sorry I don't have the energy or focus to write a nice long reply like you deserve. I just wanted to say that I just logged on because I'm worried about you, and I'm SO GLAD to hear that you're still alive. You're strong, hang in there.

Hey,

So you say this:

But you've been saying this for months. I know when you feel as low as you feel now, it feels and seems really hard to even get through the next day, hour at times, even minutes. I've been there and I get it but I also know that you have been fighting this for a whole long time and even though you're saying this, you've said in tons before and you've always gotten through it. You're still here fighting and I think that as long as you work hard enough, you'll keep going. But that's down to you. You have to choose recovery and to choose to live. It's possible but like I said you have to choose it and you have to want it and most importantly you have to work for it.

Don't stop fighting,
Jessie.
