I am feeling Suicidal... I am afraid I will attempt again......?
I had an abusive childhood

My mom was an alcoholic, my dad was absent, and my brothers (age 17) were old enough to get away. I was left behind. I was ten then (15 now).

I am feeling really depressed and really lonely.

I keep have recurring dreams were I am dying and sadly, they are my best dreams.

The doctors diagonised me at the hospital when I almost died. They said my depression wasn't a chemical inbalance, genetics, or a disorder. Simply, environmental depression

When I take anti depressants, I don't get any happier (I lie and tell people the medicine is working).

Help!!!!!!! Is there anything you can suggest that may help me lift my depression.

I already write poetry
I work out
I cannot find closure with my mom (she always denies being drinking and taking drugs)

I don't know how to put this, but is there any natural remedies that may help my pain.

I tried cutting before, but thankfully I didn't become addictited.
Additional Details
thanks for all your answers.

Unfortunately, my mom takes my money when I work.

I try to volunteer , but it is hard to get away from the house.

My mom doesn't let my hang out with my friends.

I am homeschooled, but my mom doesn't teach me anything.

I teach myself (I am a straight "a" student though.)

(the teachers at the school grade my work).

if your afraid of suicide then dont do it
your not being forced to
its not your only option
its totally your choice
if you dont want to do it
then dont
pretty simple equation

It is better you have to not attempting to comit suicide.
Because life is god's gift. We have no right to end it.

I have often felt the same- but don't do it. You CAN and WILL feel better. Just try to let everything go- don't let the past weigh you down. Maybe you could look into talking to a counselor? That is what I eventually had to do and then I was diagnosed as bipolar and take medicine and no longer prone to suicidal thoughts- maybe you need a second opinion on having a chemical imbalance? Just try to breathe. Everything is okay. Feel free to email me at [email protected] and I can give you private info or whatever- or if you just need someone to talk to- PLEASE contact me. You really can feel better.

Suicide is a permanent solution for temporary problems. Your life will get better, trust me. It might take time, but it will be WORTH IT in the end.
Good luck, im here if you want to talk

Smiles (:
Feeling suicidal is not good. Do you know any friends that you can talk to? If not, you need to see someone. You could be diagonised with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from your abusive past. PTSD is when you suffered from a traumatic experience and you get reacuring dreams of the whole incident, as if it was real all over again. There is medication for this, such as lexapro, seroquel, zoloft, prozac, and other anti-depressants. You may need a stronger dosage.

If you need someone to talk to, feel free to email. [email protected]

I would just do what your brother did. When your old enough just leave home and forget all about your childhood. Your doing good in school so that is good. Try to go to a public school next better. There, you will be out of the house and know some new people.
If it is environmental depression, then change your environment. Be around things that are happy and good. And try not to focus on the bad, negative things.

Suicide is a permanent solution for a temporary problem ...

you have so many years to live to find happiness and joy.

you need support!

Alateen is a group for teens with alcoholic family members. You can look on line for a meeting in your area. They understand what it's like to grow up in an alcoholic home.

It can really help to be around people who really get what you have been through! They will believe you whether your mom admits her problem or not.

First love your self. You are here on earth for a reason. Your mother will not change unless she wants to change. You can love her and understand that she is under the influence of drugs/alcohol and deep inside she loves you. We are here for a reason. GOD created us with the intention that we choose our own path to the future. We have a choice to live in rightousness or to live in misery. Pray to GOD for help and for him to guide you. Find activities to find your self occupied.. Try to advance your knowledge for your future and get into a after school activity. Remember when you grow up you will be able to work and find your own path. For now just be strong and love your self.

You should definitely try and get out of there. You will eventually solve problems with your mom but not until your much older. If you have other family members you could live with (uncle, aunt, brother, sister, cousin?) that are healthy, safe people you should try and reach them and tell them your situation. If you can live with them, you can start at a new school and make new, good friends (don't make friends that do drugs, it will just get you into it). Definitely keep talking to a counselor and someone close to you (like your best friend or brother). Don't take anti depressants, my mom took those and they really messed her up. She was happy and then was really really sad when she stopped taking them. Try and find a hobby you really really like and work on it, that might help. Everything will be better in time. Just have patience, you are doing really well so far with all the help you have been trying to seek.

listen to GIRLay.
Call your nearest Catholic church and talk with the parish priest.

"This too shall pass."

Be strong and call on God (He has big ears!)

Hey i'm sorry you feel that way
I personally think you should try and get out of there and since youre only fifteen i'd suggest that you first ask to be put in a Children's Crisis Center... all you have to do (if your still in school ) is tell a nurse that your suicidal...the maximum stay there is a week but the wonderful thing about that is they will either put you on a medication that actually works or find the correct treatment for you. Also, you will get to be around other kids like you and suprisingly that is really helpful. They will also put you in a living center...its actually pretty cool ...its not a foster home or anything but you get to live away from home and go to school just like you would normally do but your more independent ...i have five friends currently in that type of program and they love it. Also, if you really just need to talk about it you can email me i know exactly what your going through and I'm open to trying to help you :)

hey im 17 too,i already helped schizophrenics and people addicted to cutting,depression,anxiety,anything...if you need help email me.it's a process..i cant promise that these things will go away but i do promise you will be able to manage them.

I tried suicide when i was 14 yrs old. I had a priest standing over me giving me my final rites. The doctors had finished and basicly that was that. Well needless to say my time had not run out yet and that was 38 yrs ago. In the last 38 yrs i have had the great fortune to have raised 3 children and have a 14 yr old im still raising. I have had the great fortune to have fallen in love with a absolutly beautifull lady that in my eyes grows even more gorgeous everyday. I have had many ups and many downs yet looking back all i have is very wonderfull memories. I think you get my point here. I am so so very happy i did not succeed in my attempt to end my life. No matter how bad your feeling belive me it is going to get better and in fact its going to get great. Dont miss out on your life, im sure glad i didnt...

Maybe listen to music, That always makes me feel better. Or drink tea or something, It might calm you down.

There are many herbal remedies which can be found in the health food stores that have a balancing, calming effect. One that comes to mind that I have personally used is Valerian. It comes in gelcaps or drops that you add to water and sip . Herbal remedies are a slow but steady help for most of life's problems.

I am not suggesting that an herbal pill will suddenly cure you because it won't. But it's something to add to a list of things. Some people find comfort in a spiritual way of life, which I also do. I've heard a saying "If He brings you to it, He'll bring you through it" . I firmly believe that to be true.I believe everything we've been through in life is an important learning tool and was somehow necessary for our personal growth.

Is there anything you have an interest in? Are really passionate about? There are an infinate number of hobbies that people persue that they can become totally emersed in, and even though your thoughts and life are still here, they can take the edge off of it. If you are all envolved in something you really love, there isn't alot of time to be thinking of how depressed you are. And, the best part of persuing something you really care about is there are other people who are just as passionate about it as you are. And there are clubs , groups, meetings for anything of interest to you. So therefore, the people you meet there you already have a common interest with. So no need to be lonely with all those folks just waiting for you to join them.

Now there are lots of self help groups also that are easy to find that have other people just like you who share a common problem, therefore a common cure. One such group is ACOA which is "Adult Children of Alcoholics" Just Google it or look in the phone book.Another good group is "Alateen" which is for teen members who have family or friends who have a problem with alcohol.
So you see, for every problem anyone could possibly have, there is a group of people who have exactly the same problem and have formed a fellowship where they can come together and share and support each other. You NEVER need to be alone. A guidance councelor, a priest or pastor, anyone you trust can guide you to some form of help or you can look up a group of your choice for yourself. Doing something to pull yourself up is the first step to getting better. Wishing many blessings for you..you're worth it.

Dear friend,
You do not know what the real bliss is? you are in a feeling that happiness lies in the external environment or external objects around you. But it is not true. This I can prove you with an example. It is well known that happy for some one may be the sorrow for the other.
Take a pure vegetarian and non-vegitarian sitting opposite to each other. If a non-veg dish is placed in between them, imagine what happens? yes, non-vegitarian enjoys it and at the same time vegitarian feel uneasy. But due to ignorance, both vegetarian and non-vegitarian feels non-veg dish is responsible for their sorrow and happy. Here you should understand that non-veg dish is not a friend for non-vegitarian and not an enemy for vegitarian.
From this it is very clear that external environment or objects are not responsible for happy and sorrow. then what?
It is in the mind set (mental programme).
simillerly your mental make up is responsible for your sorrow and not your environment.
Kill the ignorance, use the intellect, alter your mental programme and lead a happy life.
Remember external situations are not in your hand but mental programme is in your hand.
Before thinking about the others mind, first make your mind friend of you by understanding happyness is within the mind and not outside
Zen poem:
Under the sword raised high
Is hell making you tremble.
But walk on.....
And there is the land of bliss

if your situation is true, then i recommend getting help at your school. teachers or counselors should be able to point you to some type of help for people in your situation. i suggest you stay away from any mind altering substances, if not for your sake then think of others. once you start getting drunk or high all your emo feelings will come out and kill the buzz for everyone else. plus you don't want to escape in drugs. pot and alcohol are great for having a good time, not to depend on to feel something else. it will do the opposite.

ok, this has worked for every one i have told.

check out a faith

BUT NOT any faith

the traditional roman catholic faith

look exactly that up i am swearing to you right now that its the only and true one

and anyone who's depressed i've told them that and now they thank me and are some of the happiest people i know

natural enough for ya?

The trouble with feeling depressed is it distorts our views on everything around us. For example, it may be true that aspects of your life are not as you would choose them right now and as a result you feel bad, but unfortunately, the negative feelings you then have influence you to start seeing everything as depressing. Sometimes so much so that thoughts of suicide occur.

If you think about it, just because some aspects of your life right now are difficult, there is no evidence that the future will not be better.

When thoughts of suicide occur it means that you have jumped from genuine sadness about the negative parts of your life to a false all encompassing depression where you are seeing things in exaggerated ways. It means that the negativity you feel for the things that are genuinly bad you now think applies to the whole of your life. When people are suicidal they believ that something that is bad is actually 100 percent catastrophic, absolutely awful and underneath they hold untrue beliefs that they will never be happy in the future and that things couldn't get better. It is their extreme views about how bad things are that make them to have thoughts of suicide.

What I am saying is that your situation is bad, but it is because in your mind you have got it out of proportion that it seems much, much worse than it is. Nothing to be ashamed of, I was doing this when I was in my 40's.

Please let someone know you need support, or counselling. A teacher or someone.

It is ok for life to be difficult right now, because it may not be in the future, but you need to get help to start looking after yourself and getting your thoughts right and putting things into perspective. When you do that you will be able to handle things even though they are sometimes difficult and thought of suicide will leave you, you will become a stronger happier person.

I cannot imagine how difficult it must be, but I think you need to try to forget about getting closure with your mom. You need to just accept that she was and is ill and cannot be the mother you deserve. Working out is good so keep on doing that. Then go out and find one or more ways to volunteer your time to help other people or some cause that is important to you. It could be working at a soup kitchen or planting trees, but it will help you to spend time caring about other people and other things. Then you can start to learn to care about yourself. You had a bad start because your mother was not able to give you the nurturing you should have had, so you need to work on making up for it. I wish you joy. I know you can find it.

Wow, reading that I wanted to cry D: I'm sorry. But unfortunentaly... There's nothing I can do. All I can say is.. Get out of there. You need to leave the past, sorta like a "New beginning" like people say : Get a job if you don't, earn money, move somewhere else maybe. Hang out with friends. Try to get away form that corner in your life that reminds you of all that.
