    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question. If now, I apologize.

    Ever since I realized I was suicidal, I've been trying to decide whether or not I should tell my one online friend. I've told my mother already, but I don't think it quite sunk in (nothing seemed to be different as before I told her), but we are trying to get me a psychologist. But I digress.

    I've been friends with this girl for about two years I think. I'm wondering if it would be right to admit to her that I'm suicidal. I don't think she can do anything to help me, and I'd feel selfish if I make her worry knowing this. Am I making any sense?

    What do you guys think? Opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    Only you would know if she would be able to handle it. But at this point I don't think it's necessary to tell her. Why not wait until you've seen the psychologist? Maybe you'll have a better understanding of what's going on and that may help you make a decision as to whether you should tell her.

    If she is not your girlfriend, I would not say anything. I have learned I don't have to tell everyone. This gives me a vacation from my problems when I interact with them.

    Keep seeking treatment and spend some time here. This will help you a lot. :hug:

    Thank you both! Alright, I'll wait before telling her (if at all). :)
