forsaken. - July 31st 2010, 03:51 AM

i don't really know what to do.
everything hurts.
and it just came out of no where.
all of the sudden it feels like i'm attacked with thoughts of suicide and self-harm.
and it's because i've held everything in for so long once again, that i'm going to snap. because i refuse to talk to anybody.
to tell them my life story.
and i wanted too.
i was going too tell a really close friend of me who went through similar problems with depression/self-harm.
but i chickened out.
and he knew i wanted to talk but i failed.
soo instead we just hung out.
and now it's not like i can text him and be like "lets talk,"
i failed.
and now i'm paying the pricee.
and idk what to do


all i want is a place to call my own and
mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone,
woah,
you know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.

Sammie,

I know how hard it can be to have these sudden moments of depression sneak up on you but I promise with time it will pass. I can't tell you when because sometimes it takes a while but it will pass just hold tough.

As for your friend; I know how hard it is to tell people these types of things. I had one friend who I had been wanting to tell since forever and one night we were chatting and I told him 'yeah I am in counseling for an eating disorder'. It was awkward and I wanted to tell him more but couldn't. After I told him that I thought I messed up because I thought he would treat me differently etc. He didn't treat me differently but we didn't bring up the conversation until one or two months later. And, at that time I told him everything and only because he told me something really personal about himself. He listened and was very understanding and when I am struggling with certain things I can confide in him. It was the hardest thing to do but it really helped.

That being said; I think you should talk to your friend. If texting him tonight isn't an option do it tomorrow or better yet text him right now and say 'I need to talk tomorrow.' Make it a plan so that you cannot change it. I did that with another friend of mine. Told him on a Sunday I needed to talk and we planned it for a Monday. When it was a set in stone plan I knew I couldn't chicken out. Maybe having the plans set in stone would help you talk to him about it?

Another thing you could do if talking to him face to face is absolutely impossible is email him or text him or facebook him. While I do not encourage people to have conversations like that online sometimes it is the best they can do and if that is the case I totally understand. I think the most important thing for you to do at the moment is open up about what is going on.

Once you open up you will probably gain some support for all of this and that will help you immensely while you are dealing with all of this.

Please hang in there and don't let this depression get you down. If you need anything feel free to pm me.

Jenna

If you need to talk with someone and you trust him very much that you feel he is one you can talk to then go and talk with him. Hang out, chill and just talk to him.


I came here to help out, so if you wanna talk or just need someone to bounce ideas or issues off of or something else then send me a message and I will reply as soon as I can.
