First things first, I am sorry you feel this way, and you shouldn't feel stupid or guilty for feeling so because it is not your fault. Sometimes we can't help how we feel.

I understand why you may find it difficult to open up to your school counselor. It's hard to open up about feelings and you're bound to be worried about what he might do or say. Keep in mind though that it is his job to see to it that you feel better about everything. He will want to help you with getting past this feeling. He will listen and he should understand.

Because you're young, he might want to tell your parents just so they can keep an eye on you and because he may think it wise to let them know that you're feeling this way. But this depends on your counselor. If you really don't want your parents to hear about this as yet, you could tell him to leave them out of it for now while the two of you try to sort out why you're feeling suicidal and how to stop feeling that way. And then, if things don't look up, he can consider telling your parents then if he wants to. It may be for the best though if you parents do hear about it eventually. They would want to and they can help you. Talk to your counselor though and ask him if he'd ever talk to your parents about the things you tell him and then you can see from there if you're really uncomfortable about telling him about your suicidal feelings.

I am always here if you need to talk. Feel free to PM me, at any time of the day. I will always get back to you. It helps to talk about how you feel, no matter how much we may sometimes think it doesn't.

Take care <3
