    I had a meeting with a professor today about my abysmal marks.. I always half expected this. She said i should get some help.
    My marks started slipping in high school when i got involved with drugs, still did well enough to get into university though.. but my marks kept slipping.
    I finally quit about 4 months ago but had to give up many friends who still do it. I havent spoken to anyone other than my mom since then. What makes it tougher still is my crazy self consciousness and anxiety i feel out in public. Ive been referred to get help a few times, but for some reason never wanted to go, i almost feel as if suicide is the only real solution and i dont want it taken away.. kinda like a 'reserve'.
    Anyways ive been telling myself all this time that if things got unbearable i would do it, and now it all seems to be coming together, as if i knew last year that it would come to this. I really dont know what to do...

    you can still keep suicide as your reserve option and seek help at the same time. i had a psychiatrist tell me that he'd never take that option from me, it would always be there, and in a strange way i found that very comforting.

    i've had alot of help over the years. right now i have a therapist i see twice a week, a psychiatrist i see every month, and medication. my family doctor also knows about my mental health issues. he's been great.

    are you considering going for help?
