  • suicide thoughts?

    Lately I've been thinking about suicide. The only thing is, i don't know if I'll do it. It's mostly because of stress. My friends know that I self-injure, but I'm afraid to how they'll react if I tell them that the thought of suicide is even on my mind. I don't feel like I can talk to ANYONE. To make matters worse, my parents have no clue about my self-injury. They'd yell at me and say I'm being stupid and that my life isn't that hard. I'm not sure of how long I can hold this in, and I don't want to end up screwed in a mental facility and I don't want people treating me as a risk to myself. I mean, my friends are great and all, but I'm afraid they'll take this way out of line and tell my family. What should I do?
