Well I think you are right to just not want to come out and say it, but you also don't want to 'beat around the bush' at the same time.

Maybe say something like the following:
"Hey ____, I know you've kind of known about my past issues, and I was just wondering if you'd be up to helping me out when things get alittle rough?"

"Hey ____, things seem to be getting alittle rough for me and I was curious to see if you can allow me to vent to you for a bit? If you feel uncomfortable at any point you can let me know. I just really need someone to talk too."

"I have always appreciated you listening to me complain or talk about my issues and I was wondering if that is ok for me to do? I don't want to make you feel uncomfortable, but sometimes it's nice to get things off my chest."

All these things are great ways to let your friend know that you want to talk to him about your issues/problems now or atleast in the future; but at the same time not forcing him to say yes. For the most part these questions just put the ball in his court to answer to without any 'outside' pressure.

I hope things work out for you!


Best wishes,
Chris

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
