Hope you are better.
I'm not in immediate danger, I've just had a bad day.
I hope your day gets better. Powerful thoughts and words can come from bad days though!
now what's going on. I feel terrible that I feel like they should be giving me more support, instead of telling me to take care of them and let them sleep in my room. And I love them, but I don't have anyone to talk to, and it's been getting worse.
I'm alone in a crowded street, a crowded house, a crowded school. I'm one person among many, why should anyone care about one person? When there are so many others?
You are one person but that doesn't make you any less important.
Savanna, I had a similar situation. I'm the eldest child out of four, and I have always been neglected like that. My life changed for the better only when I moved away from my parents and started searching for support outside family
Maybe it could be useful for you to try and find some friends who would support you... Even though I know how painful it can be when your own parents, the closest people in your life who are supposed to take care of you, are kinda ignoring you
Like you and Ivanova, I'm the eldest. Because of my family situation, I was expected to the be strong one. What I've learned is that you have to speak up for yourself. Don't be afraid to tell your parents that you need their support right now.
Thanks. I really needed to hear that.
I've taken 5 extra strength Tylanols and 3 extra strength Tylanol PM. I know I should do something about it, but I don't care enough to. I want to die, but I don't have the motivation to kill myself. And there are people I can't leave behind.
1-800-273-8255 -- ***e Hotline. CALL NOW. Please call now.
And please update to let us know you're okay. I know what it is for life to feel hopeless. But even when it doesn't seem that way, I assure you, things CAN get better.
I can't call. It's the middle of the night and I'm sharing a room with my little sister.
You've taken too many Tylenol. Please be willing to interrupt your little sister's sleep... or the sleep of any adults at home right now... to get help.
Okay -- done a little research. Please stop taking Tylenol for the next 24 hours, minimum. Also, where are you? Maybe can find a better hotline # for when you can call.
IDK why my replies are appearing out of order. The 'Okay' post comes after the 'You've taken too many post'
Okay. I think I'll be okay. I think it's just having people being here for me even when the don't know me that's helped. I was planning on cutting, but thank you for changing my mind. You're kind, and have given me hope.
Savanna, I'm so glad to see this. I'm following you and will check in from time to time. Hugs to you.
Please keep safe, Savanna! Glad Kate was there to help. Hope you can find some support around you too. Xx
Thank you so much.
Best of luck to you with the presentation! I know I am terrified of those as well everytime I get one.
If it wasn't for her. I hate that I don't know what to do.
Sounds tough Savanna. Can you let her know you are there for her? Can you signpost her towards professional help?
Sounds like you really care about her. Guessing you want to be present, connect, contribute to her well being, nurturing her, supporting her- or so I assume from what youve posted.
I don't know what you're going through, but there are people who do care and would listen
Without realizing it. Why can't they just consider what they're doing to us?!
Have so much fun! Homecoming was always my favorite school dance because it was never about dates, just friend groups goofing off
