Exclamation i need help - September 1st 2015, 08:02 PM

Hi

So I'm going to get straight to the point. I've been suicidal, I've self harmed and I've had depression for around 3 years now. I don't need a professional or anyone to tell me I'm depressed and suicidal because its perfectly clear I am. The one thing I do need is help. I've wanted help for a long time now, I'm just so sick and tired of tomorrow being a repeat of today, of being bullied and if feeling like I'm not worth it. I know there are 3 options. 1)End it the easy way 2)stay the same or 3)get help. I've tried 1 or 2 but with no success so now its time to try option 3. Only 2 people know about my problems, my best friend and my ex best friend. I don't want to tell my parents because they have too much going on right now like money problems dealing with divorce and my mentally ill brother. I'm the vision of their "perfect" child (or so they say) and I don't want to tell the truth in saying my problems. I know all to well what will happen if I tell them. But with that aside is there anyway I can get help without my parents knowing?

Sorry this is kind of a vent but I needed to let the emotions out. Thanks x

Hi there Chloe,

It's good that you are reaching out to get help and it is a really brave step. You could maybe see a school counsellor, however, if they were worried for your safety then they may have to tell your parents about something that you have said; but other than in that instance everything you tell them will be confidential. You can also get support and advice here on TeenHelp, and through family and friends.

I understand that you are reluctant to tell your parents about what is going on as you feel as they have enough to cope with at the moment, however, they will probably want to help you. Do you have any other family members that could support you?

I hope this helps, feel free to PM or VM me if you ever need to talk






I'm here if anyone wants to talk, I'm always here. Feel free to VM or PM me

I think its great for you to help out, and i think one of the best ways to vent out your feelings and emotions is to try out something new (THAT IS SAFE ) that will help you to express yourself. You could become a musician, and you could also start writing books or novels that will help you create and outlet for what you're doing. Also, i suggest that you talk to someone you know bout this including your school counsellor or maybe your parents because you need to vent.

And the people who really should understand you are your parents. I hope that they understand your feelings and are supportive of you.

Also, i've pmed you bout this. I want things to work out for you and i'll always be here for you too.


It's called a tunnel because there's ALWAYS a light at the end.



rant to me if there's anything!

Hi, Chloe.

You seem to be going through a lot right now and I'm sorry for that. However, I see a lot of braveness in the fact that you're wanting to reach out for help. That's a scary thing to do for many, so you should be proud of yourself for recognizing that your current ways aren't working.

I'm sorry you're dealing with bullying along with everything else. Can you go to the school principal or trusted teacher about who is bullying you? You shouldn't have to deal with this and I hope someone in charge at the school can improve this situation for you. As for reaching out about your struggles, you can confide in a trusted teacher, a close family member or your school counselor. As Jenny said though, if the school counselor is concerned for your safety then your parents may be contacted.

You've explained why you do not want to open up to your parents and it is valid reasoning; I understand. But if you're struggling so badly to consider suicide then it might be time to open up to them, you know? You're really caring and considerate to take their stresses in consideration but I'm sure they'd understand especially since your brother also seems to have his own struggles as well. If you don't want to tell them the full story, can you just ask them if you could see a therapist to help you deal with things? You could share with your parents that you're being bullied and I assume that would be reason enough to see a therapist.

Chloe, having your parents find out about such sensitive issues you deal with especially when they're having their own difficulties with things is understandably scary. But if you feel actively suicidal then don't hesitate about letting your parents in on that, okay? Your life and your feelings matter, don't forget that.

Hope this helped. I wish you the best of luck in things. Take care, Chloe and stay strong!
