Unhappy Lack of support from friends. - October 9th 2010, 10:37 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I know this is my 3rd post in this particular forum but I don't know what to do anymore. Even though I have a boyfriend now, I still feel like I can't talk to him or to anyone for that matter about how I'm feeling because they don't know what to say or understand what I'm going through. This week, when I've tried talking to someone about how I'm feeling, they've either had a go at me because I was feeling a bit suicidal or they've kind of not exactly disregarded it but kind of started talking about something different as if they didn't want to help me. How am I supposed to get help from friends who disregard and change the subject when I'm trying to talk to them about how I feel?

I have been in your friends situation twice. I can tell you. It is not a comfortable position to be in trying to stop your best friend from going off at them.

I think it is bad and wrong that your friends are changing the subject and not giving you support. However, for them, it may be a very uncomfortable topic to talk about and they don't want to feel bad for not giving you an answer.

I would just tell them that you want to get something off your chest and you want them to listen.

The fact is, most people our age haven't had to deal with friends that a suicidal. I am pretty experienced in the area. I had the double whammy. Not 1 but 2 friends.

If you ever need to talk.

PM me or find me in chat.
