Talk to him about how your feeling. If he has been suicidle before, he should understand. But if not, try to understand his POV. When he was suicidle, did you want to tell anyone? Im fairly sure he just wants to keep you safe. Its great having a friend you can confide in, but it doesnt beat professional help. If you arent already, id suggest seeing a therapist. As suicide is NOT the answer.

Like i said, talk to him. Maybe you both could join a support group in your area together, to get help for whatever causes your suicidle thoughts?

Hope this helps

Hey there,

I am glad that you were able to reach out to someone about all of this. I know that must have been a scary step to take but it is so much better to not have to fight depression and suicide alone. I too really wish you would seek professional help. Why is it you do not want your parents to know?

Please hang in there and don't be afraid to continue talking to your friend. You deserve to have people help you through this.

Jenna

dont say he doesnt understand you if he turns you in, I dont think he will, but atleast give him the chance to constantly talking to you, be with you and just make sure your safe, hes your best friend, let him be a real one. not saying he isnt. but when you have someone as true as you say he is, enjoy him. he will help. but just make sure if you do get bad enough. please dont be afraid of help. it isnt torture, it really isntthat bad, and regardless of whether you think your gunnaget help or not. you feel better when you come out. but how bad is it right now , passing thoughts? plans? or attempts.
