  1. Talking, does it help? (talking to a friend)
    I know all the websites and stuff say it does... but thats websites
    You are all real people
    How does it make you feel?

    I would be locked up or six feet under if I didn't talk about how Ifeel...
    even just on here helps....gotta get it out of your system or it eats you alive...
    counceling is good least you don't know them closely...

    It CAN help, many times. Ok...most times. So...yes...get her to talk. Ask her the difficult questions. The one's that you're afraid to ask. But whatever you do, do NOT tell her not to feel that way, or that things will get better, or be freaked out by her answers. You never may catch her on a day that she'll just start spilling her guts to you. And if/when that you respond will make all the difference in the world.

    Me? I won't allow myself to cry. If I found somebody that would help me get past that and wouldn't tell me to would get rid of a lot of this b.s. inside of me. have to find what's good for her. But...yes...talking is a good place to start.

    I hate talking about it..It's very hard. Sometimes it helps, but only really delays the inevitable..

    I wish i knew but i am really careful who i talk to.. here is ok because its anonymous but a real life face to face conversation on how im feeling would scare the c**p out of me. So i sit here miserable & struggling daily. I am my own worst enemy.. I guess it works for the right people?:sad:

    Choose the person you open up to very carefully in real life, the wrong person will make you feel a lot worse by making fun of you and tell you to quit being emo or calling you stupid etc.

    Only if a person genuinely cares about what happens to you.
    Other than that it's garbage and I always find myself at square one.
