Hey. I want to die because I'm scared to walk and cross streets alone. I'm also scared of uneven surfaces and steps without railings. Recently I've begun to feel very dizzy, even in my own driveway. I don't want to grow up and have to be alone, so I'd rather be dead. When I was nine and told my dad I wanted to die--this was an unrelated crisis--he said I was punishing myself because I would miss out on so much. How stupid is that? I wouldn't miss anything if I were dead! It's my life, so don't I have the right to give it up?
