I feel so lonely and isolated

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi guys,

So basically I'm a survivor of attempted suicide I've tried 4 times and all 4 have failed. I have attempted in 7 months or thought about it but recently I've had a lot of thoughts and been ready to jump and actually try my best to die. I am getting help with my alcohol counsellor and then CAHMS are getting involved as well as adoption support but I feel like having 3 support systems will be too much and I've tried telling my parents that but they aren't listening to me, they never have really and I've been with them for 17 years.They don't want to see that I'm really struggling and they just see the good in everything and not the bad which isn't helpful for me. I sit in my room every night and cry myself to sleep because I feel like I have no one who understands me.

    Hi Lauren, yours is a truly sad story. I'm sorry your parents are avoiding or ignoring how you are feeling and what you think. This seems to be the way they are are coping with the situation when in fact, they don't know how to cope or deal with it. Almost as though kidding themselves that everything is fine as that's so much easier. For them. You don't say how old you are? I'm wondering, are you under any obligation to see all three of the help"that you mentioned? If not, then you decide who you feel would be helpful. You know yourself better than anyone, so it should be your choice. I think I would definitely find too much intervention overwhelming. Trust me your gut instinct when deciding what to do. You will be okay honey . Hang in there, you're too good to loose. I do understand profound sadness and its not until you've been that low and far down the psychological fence do you truly understand the pain of depression. It's the pits, literally! Message me if need me honey. Big hugs, Donna xxx

    I believe that you are the only one who can save yourself , life wasn't meant to be easy its just an test from God to prove that we deserve heaven ..

    first of all love yourself , give yourself a chance to life , a chance to prove that you are strong and you are able to handle everything ...

    second of all try to find sth to do so you wont have time to think about suicide I know it sound like wtf , but it works , go to the gym or work on your hobbies .. try to spend more time for yourself so you will feel like life actully worth it
