    I need help and I know I do. I found myself researching methods last night, ik dumb... My boyfriend is the only one I have right now, my family has abandoned me and my friends (if u can call them that) are only there when its connivent. I am going to talk to him tonight. He already knows I'm depressed and has saved me before when I attempted suicide. But I'm so scared if I tell him in feeling this again that he'll abandon me to leaving me with no one. How do you tell someone you love that you want to die?

    If he didn't leave you, but rather helped you last time, why should he leave now?
    I know that fear... but it's not rational. He seems to be a keeper, and he seems to care!

    When I struggle and have to tell my boyfriend I always make sure to tell him that I don't want to leave him... he has some abandoment issues like I do... and it's true as well. I might sometimes want to die, but I don't want to leave him.

    Asking for help, is always better than suffering, and he will know that! Please allow yourself to be helped!

    Hi Bee, I have to agree with Phantom and Petal, you're boyfriend sounds like a good man. Be honest with him about what you're feeling and why. I believe he'll stand by you. You WILL get through this my sister, I know right now your world appears to be collapsing, but it's all fixable. Slow and steady keep moving forward. Sending positive thoughts and prayers for peace.

    It sounds like your boyfriend is supportive, so I think you should tell him how you are feeling. I know it is hard when people abandon you, and you fear it will happen again, but not everyone will leave. I hope that things will improve for you soon.
