Suicide pact turned to Therapy pact. - July 27th 2009, 01:23 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

First of all, I don't know where exactly this goes...Here... Mental Health... Familly... and once again it's rather long...

This weekend has been very hard... I had lost hope of me ever becoming any thing because my dad basically said I shouldnt try to accomplish my dreams enough that I've started to believe it. And also because my parents might be divorcing so I've lost all hope in love, deciding that love is a lie and that after 2 or 3 years, most couples, including mine, will break up even if they were in love and that a couple is lucky to make it 10 or 15 years.
Anyway, I got real bad again and decided to kill myself. I was talking about it to my boyfriend for a few days with no luck of him changing my mind until I finally got to see him for a few hours before going back to my home 200+ miles away. He was so... lost and sad and upset I told him he had 2 years to 'fix me'. (I realize that he cant fix me, that I can only fix myself, but I said it anyway)
Anyway... before that it got so bad he said he'd kill himself if I killed myself so we basically had a suicide pact. In fact, sick minded me actually joked like "Great now we have a suicide pact" (I get rather... bad sometimes)
But today he said I had to get help. like, a therapist. All day we've argued over me getting help and telling my parents but in the end I calmed down and agreed to if he would get help as well. So we have a therapy pact.

What I actually need though is suggestions on how to do this... How to tell my mom and dad who I honestly believe will resent me for lying to them. I've worked rather hard to make them think I'm slightly full of myself but not overly full of myself. I really don't want to tell them because I've heard the things they've said and what they really think about teenagers who are depressed or teenagers who cut themselves. They think it's stupid... So they'll hate me more than they already do.
I'm trying to think of a reason for me to go. A lie. I'm quite good at lying. Subjects like this are best done in the car while they're driving so they don't look at you or anything. Something that wont make me look weak in their eyes but isn't so bad that it's just wrong to lie about. (like, rape. that'd be just wrong)
My boyfriend suggested to lie that he and I broke up and it was messy and almost got phsyical. But they'd never let me see him again and still might think I'm just a whiny teenager for going to a therapist over a boyfriend of a few months.
Any ideas?



Take me seriously.
I dare you.

Hmm... don't lie to them. Believe me, I know now hard it is to go to your parents with the truth. Who are you closer to? Mom or dad?

No see... You don't understand how much they will truley HATE me if I don't simply lie to them. I lie all the time, but never for the wrong cause I believe. The whole thing will go easier if my parents still at least kinda see me as the happy go lucky but still sarcastic and slightly full of myself teenager. We'll skip the yelling at me and then the awkward apologies and then more yelling at me... Hell if I don't lie I doubt I'll even get the therapist. So lying is the best.

Honestly, I'm not close to either of my parents. They both have their ups and downs but... I'm not sure I actually love them. It's sad and pathetic and please skip the 'but they're your parent's you have to love them even if you don't like them'
Just trust me... the things they've said and the things they've done, it's a miracle that I havn't left them. I just don't want to add drama to our lives by going to court.



Take me seriously.
I dare you.
