It really sounds like you are going through a difficult time and you made the right choice to reach out for help. We are very concerned for you as you mentioned you are wanting to die. Please know suicide is not the answer no matter what you are going through. Life can present us many challenges and we all get a case of the blues from time to time. However, feeling prolonged sadness is not the way anyone wants to live their life and if you have been feeling this way for a while it is time to get more support to help you heal. Suicide might seem like the only option you have to get away from whatever pain you are feeling, but in reality, it doesn’t make things any better. It is permanent, so it takes away the option for you to have the opportunity to feel better and live your life to the fullest.</span></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>If you ever do feel that you are not able to keep yourself safe, reach out for support immediately. This can be by calling us here at the hotline or calling 911 if you are in immediate danger. We are here to support you and talk to you about what is going on and what is causing you to feel this way.  Please know there is help available. It can take time to find the best options, but suicide should not be one of those options. You deserve to give yourself the opportunity to find happiness, and to live the life you want.</span><br></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><font face="calibri, sans-serif"><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;">School can feel overwhelming. Let your parents and teachers know that you are feeling overwhelmed and that you need help. Tell them exactly what you are worried about and what is causing you stress. Tell them that it is worrying you to the point of causing you to have suicidal thoughts.  For example don't say "School stinks", instead say, "I am having so many problems with my Algebra class, it is making me feel suicidal."  When you are able to pinpoint what is causing the stress and how much stress you are feeling, you are taking the first step to take control of the situation and make it better.  As you talk over the problems you are facing, look at options.  Maybe there is a tutoring or mentoring program at your school.  Maybe you need to cut a class so you can have an extra study hall.  Maybe you and your family need to organize your home better so it is more conducive to studying.  Things can and will get better if you 1) ask for help 2) admit how badly it is making you feel 3) be specific about what kind of help you need.</span></font></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>If you want to talk more about what is going on, please reach out to us either by calling 1-800-448-3000, chat, text, or email us back. </span></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>Stay Strong and Stay Safe!</span></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>Stay safe.​</span><br></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;">LO, Counselor</span><br></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span></div></div> </div>16
