I'm depressed...:( - July 26th 2009, 01:45 AM

I just...wish that someone would take the time to slow down and listen to what my heart is crying out to say.... Everyone is so busy in my life that I just fake a smile and be Miss Sunshine... Sometimes, I want to die... Like yesterday...


Someone save me from myself...

Hey Katelin im sorry your going through a hard time right now. Its really hard when people are always busy around you and you cant ever talk to them but maybe you could like pick out a time for you guys to meet and talk or hang out something like that.

Im really sorry that you felt so bad last night that you felt like dying. Do you know why you were feeling that way? You dont have to pretend to be happy your allowed to feel and show emotions just like any other person.

Hey Katelin,

I am so sorry that you are feeling this way but I want you to know that it will be okay. I know how hard it is to feel like no one has time to listen but don't give up on the hope that people will hear you.

Katelin, have you ever sat down with your parents, friends or other trusted adults and said "I really need you to listen to me." I know that sometimes it can be hard to get people to listen but it isn't impossible. Try to reach out and make them hear you. Just let them know that you are in pain and you are struggling; sometimes people need a little push to really hear us.

If talking to them seems like it will be too hard or too stressful, etc, maybe you could try writing them a letter/email and telling them everything in there. A letter is a great way to reach out to people and get them to hear us, do you think you could try it?

Katelin, you reached out to us on here and that is great and I can tell from reading this post that your really want your loved ones to hear; and Katelin they can hear you.

I hope this helped and please hang in there. If you ever need someone to talk to please feel free to pm me.

~Jenna~

Hi there Katelin,

I'm sorry that you're feeling so depressed right now, it must be very tough for you.

You say that you "wish that someone would take the time to slow down and listen to what your heart is crying out to say" - do you feel as though you're not being listened to? If so, there is no reason that you have to continue to feel this way. I know that you say that people are busy in your life but i'm sure that someone will be willing to take the time to talk to you about how you are feeling and I'd urge you to try and reach out to someone. If you don't feel comfortable with talking to a family member or a friend then you could always talk to someone like a doctor, counsellor or religious leader. If you go to any clubs or are on any teams, you could try and speak to the leader of those. We're always here for you too of course, Katelin and are willing to listen whenever you would like to talk.

Suicide is never the answer. There are so many people who you could talk to when you're feeling upset and that is a lot more productive, safer and worthwhile. Have you considered calling a hotline? There is always someone on the end of the phone willing to talk to you if you're feeling suicidal. You have to remember that your feelings can and will change with time. It's great you're working on trying to get some help - posting here was a very good, brave decision to make.

Take care Katelin, you can get through this.
We're always here for you.
