sorry i know this is very long. yesterday morning i tried to kill myself. I've been severely depressed for a while. I have a history of getting into trouble with drugs and alcohol all through high school. they help me cope and i eventually realized its all i think about and all i ever wanted to do (not be sober). i moved away to stay out of trouble and recently my parents found out i was using substances to cope again. the night before last i got really drunk with my brother at home and in the morning my mom could smell the tequila in my room and then found the empty bottle. immediately she and my dad started yelling, they took my phone, my dad told me he wanted me to move out by the end of the day. and i had been thinking about suicide for about a month or two (and i mean really thinking about it, planning it out and everything), i thought about it every day, wishing i weren't alive. it was pretty impulsive on my part but i had also been wanting to end my life for a while, and so i thought now is the perfect time to do it because I'm about to lose everything again. I wrote a note to my family and i started to do it, but then i started panicking, i got scared, and my mom knocked soon after, and i rushed to the door, started bawling, and told her what i had just tried to do. she started crying and just held me and told me not to feel ashamed. the look on my parents faces.....i can't even describe the guilt i feel. they haven't left me alone and we are trying to figure out what my best option is. I realized how scared i am to die and that i do want to live, i just don't want to live this way, i want to get better. I'm so confused and still in shock. I just want to know, what do i do now? where do i go from here? what will help me to get better? I'm going to see a psychiatrist this week and try out antidepressants. I'm going to meditate at least 10 minutes every day, i just got a new job which will help keep me busy hopefully, I'm just going to take it easy on myself and go slow. but does anyone have any suggestions of what else i should be doing, what has worked for you? the thought of doing any school work overwhelms me but i know i have to get it done. i also feel like i have so many problems with myself and inside my mind. that overwhelms me too. thank you so much for any support/suggestions. I hope you're okay too.
