  • Just end it.

    I am a 17 year old girl who is a half mom full time. I cooked dinner 4 days a week, clean my house, and watch after my four younger siblings and I have been doing this since I was 13. I have had anxiety since I was 7 and I have had depression since I was 11. I want to die, but I'm to weak to actually kill myself.
    My parents aren't bad people but their so busy providing for us they have a hard time taking care of us. My parents are also blind to the obvious like my scars on my arms from using my nails to cut my skin, and my obvious depression. I love my family but I can't help but feeling I'd be happier without them, I just want people who will accept me. I'm so tired of living, I just want people who will care about me as much as I care about them. I've tried telling my parents about my depression they just said I was just looking for attention, I've tried to make them understand, I've tried talking, it didn't work.
    I've considered running away for years, now I'm considering doing the opposite because if I've already tried to save what I have with my family now I need to leave to save what I have left of myself. Tell me it's okay. Tell me I'm doing the right thing. I need to try something different, I need to save myself. I just want it to end.

This is the first lie we tear down in honor of Suicide Prevention Month. Join us as we fight the myths and misinformation that have marked the conversation […]
