Scared - May 13th 2010, 11:04 PM

I can't do this anymore. Everything's going downhill again, and I want it to stop before it gets worse. I want to get help. I don't want to end up suicidal again. But I don't want to hurt anyone again either. Because I know that if i tell someone, like one of my teachers or a guidance counsellor, then it would be just like an instant replay of last year. I don't want to hurt everyone who loves me anymore.... but if I tell someone, that's exactly what's going to happen. They'll get hurt all over again. But at the same time, I don't want ME to hurt anymore either. I don't know what to do....

I'm scared of what will happen... if I do or don't get help this time... I just want it to be over...

I think it is great that you want to tell somebody about how you're feeling. You should be proud of yourself, because a lot people never tell anybody these kind of things, and they never get help. Nobody wants you to see you unhappy, so I don't think whomever you will tell will be hurt. They should be glad you came to them. I'm not completely sure what happened last time, but if you don't feel comfortable talking to whomever you did last time, try talking to somebody else that you trust. If they refer you to somebody, such as a counselor or other specialist, it's only because they care and they want to see you safe. Even if something doesn't work out, keep trying, because the same thing doesn't work for everybody. Once you get help, everything will be easier.

Take care.

Always feel free to contact me.

Hey Megan.

I’m sorry that things are going downhill again. It sounds like you found it hard talking to people about this last time, but that shouldn’t stop you trying to get help again.

If you’re feeling so bad that you think you might end up suicidal, then it’s really important that you do get some extra support as soon as possible. I can understand why you’re finding it hard to talk to people, but I think that it’s important that you do so people can help you to feel better before things get worse.

I don’t think that people close to you will be feeling hurt about what you tell them, they may be upset, but that’s only because they love you. I’m sure that they would want to know what’s going on so that they can support you and help you feel better. Also, the people who love you will probably catch on that you aren’t yourself and are feeling down even if you try to hide it, I think it will be worse for them if they think you don’t want to talk to them.

I know you’re finding it really hard, and I can understand why, but please try and talk to someone so you can get the help that you need and deserve.

Hope you sort things out and if you want to talk PM me.

Can you tell us what happened the last year, in regard to counseling ? It'd be a bit easier at least for me to understand what you are going through.

Life is overrated, but so is death.

Hi Megan.

I'm sorry to hear that you're feeling as though things are starting to go downhill again, but it's absolutely wonderful that you're thinking and wanting to get help. That is very brave of you and I think that it's a great idea.
I think that you should try and talk to someone, such as a teacher or a guidance counsellor. I know that it may be difficult and you may feel as though you're hurting them, but I am sure that they would rather you reached out for help than got to an extremely low point. They will want to help you and they want you to be happier, Megan.
Try to reach out. It may be difficult, but it's also very worthwhile.

Take care.
