How do I go about telling somebody? - November 4th 2009, 07:43 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.

I feel really down, and yes, scarily suicidal. I have a counsellor, I just don't know how to tell her. I don't know what she needs to know. Last time I felt this bad I ended up in hospital, I really don't want this to happen again. I don't actually want to die, I just want something to take this pain away. I don't want to wake up tomorrow, tomorrow is a year since Jo died and it's my aunts funeral.
How do I tell her? What do I say? What questions will she ask?
Any ideas are muchlyyy appreciated.

If I were you, I'd just tell her you're feeling depressed. She'll probably ask why, how long, and things of the sort. She might ask you things like "What do you enjoy doing?" and suggest that you do those things when you're feeling upset. Most importantly, just tell her how you feel. Talking about it will possibly help, it most cases it does. Once you start telling her, the words will probably fall into place and you can just tell her everything. She's there to help you. Tell her what you feel she needs to know. Good luck, and take care!

I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons.
And maybe we’ll never know most of them.
But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from,
we can still choose where we go from there.
We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.

You should go to her and tell her that you need to talk or write it on a peice of paper and take it with you whaen you go see her.Tell her about being so upset. Don't give in because you are special and mean something to someone.

If you just say youve been thinking about suicide.. she'll probably ask why you feel like that, how long youve felt like that.. if you have any plans and stuff.. the usual questions.. just be honest.. I know your trying to avoid going into hospital and I completely understand that fear.. but isnt it better to be safe and to feel better then to have to deal with the way your feeling right now (: its all about keeping you safe.
Good Luck.. if you find it really hard to speak to her, write it down and show it too her.. as awkward as it can be then you'll feel better if they can help you.

[x] Even though I'm the sacrifice,
You wont try for me, not now,
Though I'd die to know you love me,

I'm all alone,

Isn't something missing?
Isnt someone missing me [x]

Baby, i want you to be my superman.

the best way is to be straight with it and just come out and say it. don't beat around the bush. you could even start the conversation by saying that you don't quite know how to tell her how you're feeling but essentially you are suicidal. counsellors are used to dealing with people who find it difficult to tell people how they're feeling. just tell your counsellor what you've told us. i doubt you'd end up in hospital again - because as you've said, you don't actually want to die.. you just need help dealing with these feelings. hang in there, hun. x

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..
