Question Don't know what to do.......... - March 12th 2010, 01:02 AM

I have been considering suicide for a long time... I never told anyone until last year because i felt like I needed someone's help. so I told my best friend. When he realized how bad off i was he said he would give me two weeks to tell my parents or someone until he told them himself... Two weeks went by and I persuaded him not to tell. he has been a great friend and I talk to him almost every night. Recently though we haven't been able to talk and I feel very alone. No one around me even knows what i'm going through and i don't know what to do. I thought that I would be ok if I just got through it but recently its been getting worse and worse and I can't stop from feeling sorry for myself and considering different ways of just ending it all together.... My friend isn't around to talk to and nobody else knows...What should I do?????

Hey there. I think your friend was right in telling you that you need to tell your parents or another trusted adult. I know it would be so difficult, but the support you would get in return would be so worth it. TeenHelp is always here for you! Please PM me if you would like to talk about anything at all. I'm here for you and I am a good listener. In the meantime, try and keep your chin up.


There is always hope. PM me anytime.

Hey there,
I agree with what Kac said. Although it may seem scary to have your parents know what's going on inside your head, at this point it's crucial. We all care about you and would never want anything to happen to you. If you tell your parents, they can help support you with whatever you need to feel better. Maybe you could ask about seeing a therapist? They are really helpful in letting things out and helping you through rough times. Don't keep it all inside, you're just going to feel worse. Reaching out is a sign of strength, not weakness. You're not alone, we are all here for you, remember that. Think of all the people who would be hurt if you killed yourself. Suicide is a permanent "solution" to a temporary problem. You can get through this, you will feel better.
Hang in there,
Alessa


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.
