  • Need Help/A Plan (By Tomorrow)

    My parents are way too controlling, but I don't even know if others would see it as controlling. Lately I've been having trouble explains this all, but I really need help. I'm 17 years old, I suffer from panic attacks and severe depression on a daily basis. I have no job because I'm not mentally capable of keeping one. If I'm not crying in a dark corner wanting to kill myself, I'm losing my mind, and collapse on the floor wanting to kill myself becausE I'm so sick of living like this. My biggest issue, mainly my only issue to really worry about is finding a plan around school or my life, which is why both matters while I'm explaining. Since my panic attacks got worse, I can't handle being in my core classes anymore. The gore,the dark world we live in, how dark the world used to be,everything negative. I can't hear that stuff anymore, whenever I do, I panic badly and nearly end up throwing up and missing half the lesson. The school offered me correspondence but my mom won't let me, nor will me dad. Now my dad is threatening me with more abuse and my mom is threatening to get rid of me, and my sister is saying they should send me to a psycho ward (or a school for psychos. I'm stuck between fighting and killing myself. I just can't go to school anymore. But like I said it's only my cores making me worse. I'd be fine right now without them, but my mom won't help make it easier in me, nor will my dad. All they're worried about is punishing me for having anxiety and depression. I just need a way to get through this or to successfully kill myself. Please help. I don't want to die, but my parents have me surrounded.
