I need to tell someone. Anyone. They think I’m better, but really I’m just holding it all in. I want to tell my parents, but they’ll overreact and yell. I want to see the counselor but actually going through with that is scary and I don’t know what to say. These meds worked for a while but now there just numbing me in all the wrong places. I really don’t want to get to the point where I like, attempt suicide or something but I can’t go on like this much longer. What am I supposed to do??? I’m sick of holding it all in. </span><br></p></div><div class="ExternalClass1B1713AC7A1E4345AC4CC2F2B7538A18"><p> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3">Thank you for contacting Your Life Your Voice.  It isn't easy to reach out when you are struggling, but we are glad that you did.  There is no benefit to you to hold in how you are actually feeling.  The best thing to do is to talk to your parents about how you are really doing.  If you feel that they are going to yell, then ask another trusted adult to help you talk with them.  This could be a teacher, a school counselor, another relative, or another trusted adult.  </span></p><p> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3">It is a bit unsettling to start therapy.  However, the therapist will be there for you, and the best therapeutic outcome for you is for you to be honest about what is going on with you and how you are feeling.  Also, medication can be adjusted.  If the med is no longer working for you, contact your doctor.  Fighting the right medication can be tricky, and the best way to find the right medication is to talk to your doctor and let your doctor know how the medication isn't working for you.  </span></p><p> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3">If you do not feel that you can stay safe, please reach out to 911 or call the Hotline immediately.  We want to support you through this difficult time.  <br></span></p><p> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3">Please keep reaching out for support to talk through these feelings and any stressors you may be having.  Take care.</span></p><p> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3">Nancy, counselor</span><br></p></div>15
