I don't know if I can handle much more - February 1st 2017, 09:43 PM

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 just feel like I can't deal.
I literally just broke down because I lost my phone charger and inhaler.
I'm starting to get to the point where I say things like "I should just crawl into a hole and die," "I should just kill myself."
I'm not suicidal so I don't know why these things are slipping out of my mouth like this. It's really abnormal for me.
I'm also starting to have thoughts, especially when things are going wrong - that I'm worthless and I just suck at everything.

I just don't know.
It doesn't take much to set me off anymore.
I don't know what to do.

Also, I know the advice is typically go talk to a counselor and such. I do have a counselor but I haven't told him about these new issues. I also don't have an appointment for another 24 days, and I feel like e-mailing him with things like "I should just kill myself, but I'm not suicidal" wouldn't be good as things don't always transfer online as well as they do in person.

Thank you for reaching out to us here at Teenhelp. I am sorry you are going through a rough tie but glad you have come to us here for some help and advice. You don't deserve to go through this alone.

I know you said you had a counsellor and I can see why you wouldn't email that to him however I think if you were to email him saying that, he wouldn't understand what is actually going on for you. It is very short and doesn't describe how you are feeling. What might be a good idea is to talk about it in the email a bit like you have done here. So not just stating your thoughts or what you are currently saying to yourself or to others, but how you feel about what you are saying and also about how you feel about it and include that you feel confused. You could even copy and paste what you have said here to help explain how you feel because it comes across as if you know how you feel and what you are thinking and that you have a lot of capacity and you are thinking about why you are thinking this way when you say you do not feel suicidal and I think if you were to state it the way you have done to us, your counsellor will be able to help you more than simply stating what you said you don't want to email him saying.

I know this is really hard right now and I have no clear cut answer to make things better for you, but I do want to tell you that you are never alone. We are not professionals here but we will use experience and hope in order to help you as much as we can. We are always happy and wanting to help and support you through what you are going through and to help you manage thoughts and emotions. Things will get better; nothing lasts forever, not even happiness so keep fighting through it and it will become better but it is going to take time and hard work and dedication to recovery but I believe in you and know you can get through this and to the other side.

Keep fighting and don't be alone. You deserve love, help and support.

Hope and wishes,

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