Told My Friend I Had Plans?? - May 12th 2011, 02:50 PM

I told my friend from church I had plans to commit suicide... He got this really shocked look on his face, came over and sat on the couch with me and hugged me. "Don't do it. We care for you and about you, and no one would ever want to see you hurt or dead. Plus, youth-" (our wednesday night activities at church are just called 'youth') "-would be no fun without you... Don't do it." And then he walked out, mumbling something about finding out who he was hitching a ride home with... 10 minutes later, my youth group leader comes up and asks me if I was having thoughts of suicide. ???

sorry I don't really get what your asking? could you elaborate? like are you mad at him or ...?


I'm burning out like a bright light, I wasn't ready for this. You're adorable as hell, but I'm glancing at your wrist.

Sorry- I didn't get to finish the post.
He told our youth group leader that I had suicide plans and she came over and talked to me, saying that it wasn't worth it, that my friend had been really scared and almost in tears, and that if I didn't tell my mom what I was planning to do, then she would. And so... I don't know what I should do...

I personally don't think you want to commit suicide. If you really wanted to you wouldn't of said anything to this friend. People who say things to someone are crying out for help. It's good that you did, and even though you may not like the fact that this boy told the youth group leader it's best that he did. Your friend did the right thing. It would also be best if your mother did find out. You also did the right thing by telling someone what you are planing and also how you are feeling. Congrats to you for that. You made your first move!

These people are just trying to help you. I know you know that. From the sounds of it it seems as if you have some of the best support you could ask for. Your friend and the church and hopefully your mother soon. Take this support even though it may not feel as if you want it. Deep down you have to know you do want this help and guidance.

In the mean time you should really try to find helpful ways to deal with the urges. Ways to distract yourself. Exercise. Go out for a walk. Release those negative thoughts and try to embrace the nature and a positive environment. Do sit ups until your abs are just in pain and you can't do anymore. Sit down and just write like a mad women your thoughts out until they pass. It may sound silly but put your face in a bowl of ice water. You will learn more if you go to counseling. Which sounds like it may be a great idea. Everyone needs to just speak to a professional.

Good luck Kyra! You are on the right track!

I really think you shouldn't do this. You've seen first - hand how many people care about you in your church alone, so now you know you won't just be hurting yourself but a lot of other people too. Please wait it out and you'll see how things will start looking up, so hang in there! Carpe Diem.
