On the edge.. Not sure if I can take it anymore.. - May 31st 2010, 04:47 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.

No one knows it, not even my friends and family, but I'm suicidal. And I have been for around a year now. I've just been dealing with it somehow, but I've been hurting myself for a while now, too. There are times where I just wish I could end it all.. and that's what I've been feeling like for the past week. Last night I almost did it, but luckily my friend called me and pretty much saved me. They don't know it, but they did. I know that I need help, I just don't know how to ask for it. Some how, I'd feel like I'd be a disappointment. My mom is pregnant, so she and her boyfriend already have a lot to deal with, without a suicidal teenager to deal with. I just need help, but what should I say to my family/friends when I ask for it? Help...

Molly,

I am sorry you are feeling this way. I know how hard it can be to deal with depression and suicide but I promise you can make it through. Sometimes all we need is a little bit of support.

I would really like to encourage you to talk to your mom and let her know what is going on. She might get upset but in the end I believe she would much rather you confide in her and get help for this instead of keeping it locked inside and doing something to harm yourself.

I am sure your mom loves you and wants to see you happy and healthy. That can and will happen but you need to speak up and get some help. Don't be afraid to speak up it is hard but it can be really really beneficial.

If you need anything feel free to pm me.

Jenna

Ask for help! Absolutely! And dont think you are a disappointment - it's not your fault you have to suffer this horrible thing, be proud you have survived - a lot of people aren't that lucky.
Look for professional help, I did, I was terrified but it was the best thing I have ever done and such a relief.
It can only help.

As others said before me: Ask for help. And you will be extremely glad you did. I have struggled for two years without telling anyone and wished that I would have told them a lot sooner, to this day that still do not know. Here is a link that someone on here gave me on how to tell parents:

or if that doesn't work, give them the yellow ribbon card. Here is where you can get them for free, just print it out.

Good luck and you WILL become better!
