    Hello, everyone.

    To start off, I'm pretty much new here. I've been visiting this forum for a while now and I've been debating or not to make an account; and now, here I am. I've been contemplating suicide for a while now and it's been bothering me. It's always disturbing me, always at the back of my mind. Honestly, I'm too afraid to ask anyone for help. I'm too afraid to ask guidance counselors, my friends and my family for help. I'm worried about adding more problems into their life. I don't want to be a burden to them.

    So here I am in this forum. I want to be able to find others who experience the same stuff as I do. Despite my problems, I also want to be able to help others who have the same experience as I do. I may not be great at giving advice but I'm willing to listen to any of you, if that helps.

    Thank you for anyone who's reading this. I hope to make your acquaintance.
    Have a great day, everyone.

    Welcome to the forum. I am glad that you decided to join. Hugs. Telling someone is scary but it is a good idea. Can you start off by saying you are feeling down.

    Thank you for joining us here at SF. I personally look forward to hearing about you and what has brought you to this corner of the web. I invite you to read my personal story below in green and just know you are not the only in pain. You are not the only one suffering. Everyone here is fighting their own battles. While you are here, you are safe. No one will harass you or insult you in any manner. That BS is not tolerated here. I hate to hear that you are suicidal. You must have a lot of stuff going on in your life for you to feel this way. Do you know why we feel suicidal? (I am suicidal too, btw) If you don't know would you like for me to explain it to you? I want you to promise me that if you ever feel like you are in danger of hurting yourself, you will take yourself to the nearest ER, and get the help you need. There is no shame in getting help.

    I would personally love to hear more about you. What are your dreams? What do you want out of life? What issues do you think , you need help with? How can we help you get into a better place?

    Feel free to PM/IM me anytime if you just want to chat or want to talk about something in a private manner.

    Take Care

    Everybody needs help now and then, asking for help is not being a burden. If your relationship with them is not toxic, then they would want to help you just like you would have wanted to help them..
    It was a great thing to open up here. A very good start. hugs for you
