A few months ago I was severely depressed and I did SI* and even tried to commit suicide 3 or more times. After being in counseling it has helped me to realize that I am not alone and that I can actually help people, that i am valuable, loveable, and worthwhile. For years I couldn’t see that but now i have and it has caused me to be in a good mood. I still get down but it isn’t as bad as it used to be.
So, if anyone needs a friend or any teenager needs to talk about teenage things, I am 19 and a college student. I would love to talk to anybody who just needs a friend. ** Helping people helps me to feel like I have a purpose in life. So don’t be afraid to reply to** me. Also youthspace is a great website. So don’t be afraid to talk to the volunteers.

I want to thank you for sharing your story – I can hear that the last months (and years) have been filled with enormous pain, and I am so glad to hear that you found the strength to get the support that you deserve.. It sounds like there’s way more light in your life than before. (:
I’m also glad you found us and you’re here to support other users. I just wanted to let you know that we edited your post to remove the email address (to keep everything anonymous on here) but other youth can still respond to your post on the forum and talk with you that way.
Always know that we’re ‘hear’ for you too if you want to talk – both on the forum and over chat (every night 6-11pm on the west coast).
The Support Team.
