    Hey everyone... It's kind of late here right now, and I gotta sleep, but before, I felt like posting a small introduction here, so when I wake up tomorrow ( today actually, lol ) I might have some posts to read. :)

    These suicidal thoughts are not new to me. I'm 21 years old ( I'm surprised I found even younger people than me on this forum ) and today, I had probably one of my worst days ever. The only reason I'm still alive is because of the fact I don't have the guts to end my life. Mainly because I don't want to feel pain and I still think of how my friends and family would deal with the situation.. and I won't be here to see what happens right after that.. and I still think life can get better.

    I always loved to participate in forums, and for years I haven't found one that would get me addicted to.. ( since the last one ). Hopefully this is the one, even tho it's a bit of ironical, seeing it deals with such a complex subject.

    As a conclusion, and I hope I'm not asking too much from everyone here, but please, take some time and read all my future posts.. Help me, I really need it.. We all do, but from the little time I went on browsing the topics here, some guys are really not helping at all.

    If there is someone here from Portugal, let me know. ;)

    I'm also 17 years old... but I can understand a little of the suicidal feelings you get. I hope that you'll find the support you need right here.

    welcome to the forum.
    Unfortunately, there are a lot of members much younger then you around here....sad to see such young people suffering, even wanting to die.
    But well, I guess it's not that new, at your age I had allready tried to kill myself twice, didn't try again because of a promise I made and now, at the age of 44, I have been alive for the last ten years for the sake of my kids.

    I hope you find some comfort and undersdtanding here.

    I was born in Santos-O-Velho, Lisboa, but live elsewhere for 25 years now.
    Take care,

    Thank you so much everyone !

    Omg, I live near Vila Franca de Xira as well ! I'm from Sobralinho, between Alhandra and Alverca.

    No. I wouldn't know how to hide that from my family. They wouldn't understand. I don't know where to go, who to seek.. As for the medication, I'm thinking of talking with my Doctor, to see if he prescribes me something.
