    There are certain people in my life that I really want to open up to and reveal that I have attempted suicide in the past and can still be suicidal. I think it would change the way the look at me. The thing I'm afraid of though is that they will turn away from me. I know a lot of people feel uncomfortable and somewhat intimidated when they are around a suicidal or former suicidal person. I would just like to find a way though to tell them because it is a huge part of who I am whether I want to face it or not.

    Imo- don't tell them you are suicidal. I've never gotten any supportive replies when telling some one this. I told my mom and she became angry, told me to do it. It's like they agree with me that I should kill myself. You could just maybe say that you are feeling down, don't like how your life is going, had depression problems etc.

    I think you should open up to them , even though it may be very difficult to do so. Or maybe you should talk about this to a counsellor? I don't really know what else to say, If you want to talk feel free to PM me :arms:
