    Hello people!
    My name is Helen and I'm 17 from the west midlands in the UK. I have been depressed for about 5 years and diagnosed for about 2, last year I attempted to commit suicide, I took an overdose. Surprisingly enough it did not work and I'm still here today.

    I decided to join today because I wrote a letter to my counselor today, unfortunately my mum found it and has threatened to either leave or get me admitted into a secure unit. I have been very depressed recently and have often considered committing suicide. The only thing that has stopped me is that when I feel very down I believe I'm not even worth the trouble caused by me killing myself.

    This sounds like a horrible predicament to be in, your mum obviously doesn't understand how suicidal people think. If that much pressure is put on you, you're more likely to do something stupid.

    Well, obviously those options are out of the question, psych wards are horrible, and it would be awful if your mum left you. Some comprimise can be made.

    Anyway, PM if you need someone to talk to.

    :welcome: to SF Helen. It sounds like your mom needs to sit down with someone that understands dispression and suicidal ideation. I think if she had a better understanding, maybe she could offer some support for you. Please take care and stay safe. :hug:
