    Hey, my name is Tara, I am 20 years old. I joined this forum not because I am suicidal myself but because both of my parents at separate times tried to commit suicide. I am lucky that they are both still with me, but its still something that has affected my life greatly. At 12 years old I was the one who found my mother nearly dead. And at 16 I am the one who talked my dad out of killing himself when he had a gun to his head.

    Even though I've never attempted suicide myself I've definitely been there when you're hurting so badly that you dont want to live anymore, but for me suicide is not an option. After experiencing how much suicide hurts those around you, it will NEVER be an option for me...I have been there and seen people at their worst and most hopeless state and I've seen them get better too. If anyone wants to talk, I'd love to listen.
