    I'm their youngest daughter thousands of miles away from home in another country and I finally just sent my parents probably the most difficult thing I ever wrote telling them about my attempted suicide in February. It's sent now so no going back, but I'm waiting for a reply and I am just imagining all of their emotions as they read it. How betrayed they must feel. How powerless and how unloved. I feel so wretched about it. I don't know if I've done the right thing by telling them.

    I'm happy that you got the courage to tell them, I know it might seem a bit scary right now, but I think you will be happy about this as well in the long run. Allow them to help you and support you!

    It might take them a while to formulate an answer, I hope you take that into consideration. Try not to stress too much about waiting.

    Did you ever get a reply from your parents? I hope it went well if you did. I know I had a hard time telling my mother about my suicidal feelings when I got so suicidal I scared myself. I felt like it was the right thing to do and to be honest it was.
