    Over the past few months I have been pathologically attempting suicide. Most of the time I dont even know what I did until after the fact. I have attempted suicide about 12 times not counting my little experiments with a pillow(suffocation). Do I have some kind of disorder, because I just can not explain what has happened to me these past few months.

    To admit you are in that much pain would be very brave...it is more important that you seek help than have a label...whatever is the underlying cause should be treated...you deserve a better life! big hugs, J

    There is always help,
    You just have to look around a little to find it. For example this website. Here are hundreds of people who may not know exactly what you are going through but can unerstand and empathise with your pain.

    Try venting on here.

    Other than that there are doctors, care workers, help lines, charities, organisations.....The list goes on and they all want to help, they all want you to choose life over death. We all do.

    How can you want me to choose life over death when you dont even know me?

    Because i don't really want anyone to die, especially by committing suicide.
    I don't know you so i don't know any of your percieved faults of failings, but you are on here so there is a part of you that wants to open up, so do, tell us what is wrong and people will listen.

    Even if you don't tell anyone in your real life, think of this as an escape.

    I'm so glad you have told your Mum, try to be completely honest with her though.
    13 is such a young age to be going through what you are and things will get better.
    You just have to trust people, most won't judge and the ones that do are ignorant.

    Take care little buddy, let me know how you are getting on!

    Im not telling parents about my suicidal tendencies yet, they do know that I am depressed though. I will tell my therapist though.
