Edwina and FinalNervana,
Expressing the feelings that you shared must be extremely difficult. I want you to know that we have posted a National Hotline number you can call 24/7 if you feel like giving up. It is the second post in the second topic on this board under "Depression Resources" or, you can click on this link. Please re-read CheerDad (Randy)'s post above. He has good advice for you.
Edwina, you can find a counselor by:
talking to your guidance counselor at school
calling your family doctor and asking for a referral
talk to your mom, dad, adult friend or relative that you trust
talk to one of your church leaders for referral or help
confide in a teacher who you trust and ask them were to get help locally
Please keep posting and let us know how you are doing.
You both continue to be in my prayers.
