    In the past 2 years, I've lost 5 friends to suicide. After that terrible pain, I realized that's something I couldn't bear to do to the people who care about me.

    But the thoughts won't stop.

    Mostly it's the combination of intense, unrelenting self-hate, PTSD symptoms, and utter anhedonia. I'm in treatment, I have a whole team of people trying to help, but nothing works--and then I feel guilty for being needy and difficult.

    I keep thinking about how I could kill myself. I don't even want to think these thoughts--I feel so guilty for considering it, but I can't stop the thoughts.

    I wish my heart would just stop. My friend Kelsey died of anorexia--her heart just stopped in her sleep. I wish that would happen to me. Then I wouldn't have to kill myself--I'd just die, guiltless.

    I can't kill myself, but I can't manage living, either. What do I do?

    Don't feel guilty. Talk to someone, anyone, especially a doctor or a psychologist who can tell you exactly what to do to get well. Confide in a good friend who really cares about you. After having 5 friends die by suicide, it's natural to think similar thoughts, but you don't want to die. You want to be well and joyful again. Talk to someone, please.
