does anybody in your family know that you feel this way? why don't you talk to your school counselor? you need to tell someone. if you make a rash desicion, you will never be able to reverse it and no good will come of it. keep posting here and keep talking to us. hang in there. as bad as things get, they also get better. don't think that noone cares, because we do.

I am trying not to do anything rash, but I cannot hold out much longer! The only people I feel I can talk to is the forums and other kids! There is no one else!

Yes, their are others to talk to. Please pick up the phone tonight and call any and/or all of the numbers below.
National Suicide Hotline
1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433)
This is a combined network of the Amerian Association of Suicidology, the National Hopeline Network, CONTACT USA, and many other organizations. Call are automatically routed to the nearest crisis center to the phone from which the call for help is placed.

Helpful Web Sites:
Suicide Hotlines (listed by state)
Suicidal.com (includes Suicide Crisis Center and Depression and Suicide)
SuicidalTeens.com

You are not alone. Hon, please hold on. You have your whole life ahead of you. I know how you are feeling. I have had suicide ideation. You are stressed out. Please let the tears flow. Tears are a way of cleansing the soul. You are in trouble. You have to reach out. The kids at your school don't know how to deal with this unless they themselves are suicidal and then that's not always a good thing. I called one of the numbers below myself. Their is nothing to be ashamed of. They are very kind and will LISTEN to you. They won't judge you.

Please make the calls. Also, why don't you write out your feelings on here? Sometimes it helps just to get what's inside outside. You are not alone. Tell us what is going on and others will be along to write to you.

Are you seeing a psychologist? Are you taking meds?

There is no school counselor. When I'm at school, I am a complete work zombie. I can't wait to leave my house! All I cause is fights! Now I don't even want to go to College!

Hi scholiosiskid, I've been in the same situation as you.  wanting to end it all and feeling like my family hates me.  I called a crisis line and they helped me to get help without my family ever knowing.  Please call someone...it saved my life and I would hate to think of all the wonderful things I would have missed out on in life If I hadn't made that call.  My thoughts and prayers are with you.  Please let us know how you are going.  We are here to listen.

Dance like no-one's watching,
 
Love Thy Neighbour, just don't get caught!

Scholiosiskid, Please do heed the members advice here and seek help.  I dont know what your family dynamics are and what kind of challenges you are facing in your everyday life.  I understand that at times things can get really rough and it seems difficult to go on but you seem that you have endured, grown, and strengthen from your health issues.  I often too take burdens upon myself and feel that I am at fault for things that are beyond my control.  Take some deep beaths and try to communicate with your parents regarding these issues.  When your panicked it is difficult to see no way out but ending your life is not an option and I am certian that it is in no way worth whatever the problem is.  Please do visit the websites that Hopefulmigrainer has left for you and call that hotline.  They really do help.  My thoughts go out to you.

Oh dear, I am sooooo very sorry for your pain. When I was 15, I was pregnant by my 19 year old boyfriend of two years in a strict Catholic family. You want to talk crisis!!! To boot I wouldn't give the baby up. Now I am the proud mom of a 26 year old French Immersion schoolteacher. My point---what is going on now is temporary and suicide is permanent. Yes the fact that it is temporary is no consolation but let it be something that at least helps you hold on through the tidal waves.

Later in life I attempted and nearly succeeded at a suicide. The doctors say a miracle saved me because I was comatose and on life support. Yes at the time things seemed unsalvagable, no light at the end of the tunnel. Now I look back at the wonderful things that have happened in those 15 years since I nearly died, and yes there were some awful times too, but I am thankful I did not miss out on what I could have.

Ten years ago I was so depressed they wanted to insitutionalize me and gave me electric shock treatments galore.

Today I am happily married, working but off because of surgery I just had, with two wonderful daughters and two great pets. No one could have convinced me that these good things would come about EVER. I was so depressed and had so much ocd that I was certain I was doomed to a lifetime of it neverending.

A good therapist and good meds brought me further than I could ever have imagined.

So stick around here and let us help you hang on. Talk to us. Go to the links hopeful sent and call the suicide hotline. Get a referral to a good doctor and talk to him or her about meds and therapy. And never say never because you'd be amazed at what life has in store for you as long as you're alive for it.

Please stay in touch and keep us posted. Please call your nearest distress centre or the suicide hotline. Please find a doctor and therapist. And please let us know how you are feeling.

Thank you for reaching out to us before you did anything drastic. That was a great sign of strength. I think you have more tenacity than you credit yourself for or you wouldn't have posted. Adolescent is a hellish time at best let alone with depression, but six years of adolescence is brief compared to what's ahead. Stay tight!!!!
And there came a time when the risk it took
to stay tight inside the bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom
