Unhappy failed suicide attempt - January 15th 2012, 12:16 PM

well just over a week before Christmas I took about [X] in hope that I would die and it failed I wish I was gone. a few days ago I told one of my best friends about my suicide attempt, she was the only person I had told, she gave me a little advice and said I can talk to her whenever but I don't feel like I can. when I told my mum late last year that I wanted to commit suicide, it's like that she does not care enough, my dad and mum are split up so I don't think he knows any of this and I don't want to tell him. she seems to be pretty much ignoring what I told her, thinking that it will all go away. (she thinks that hurting yourself and killing your self are the same thing)
I feel that she does not want me around and won't care if I kill myself or not.

I have people around me but everyday I feel a bit more lonely then the day before. it's hard for me to talk to my friends, I want them to know about what is really going on in my life, but I feel if I tell the ones I have not told they will just run away and abandon some more. I already feel a bit abanded by them.

please help with some advice

I totally understand where you're coming from. It can be really hard even scary to open up to your friends about stuff like this. You won't know how people will take it till you try. I hope that at least 1 or a few of your friends will understand and be willing to support you in whatever way you need it. You have plenty of people here to talk to if you ever need it though, we're all here for you.

It's usually good to have someone close to you to talk to. It's also never easy to open up because you're never sure if you can really trust them and you also don't want to dump all of your problems on anyone, but talking is one of the best ways to get through any situation.
As the previous poster stated, there are plenty people here you can talk to, and I am one of them.
