Reach out, seek help

Today, I realized there are only three things keeping me from committing suicide: My pets, my fictional comfort character, and the knowledge that if I failed, I’d not only be institutionalized, but be kicked out of my very Catholic high school. FML

How about avoiding eternity in Hell? I think Catholicism frowns upon that.

Don't do it my friend. I remember experiencing anxiety during high school, ended up with a good friend with an acquaintance through it. Hope you can find some good support people. Hugs and support

For me it's always been my family. I just couldn't do that to them, it's totally out of the question. I've known people who have committed suicide and it can really leave a lasting impact on those close to you.

I think about that too. how sad my pets would be. I do hope your pets bring you joy and comfort and remind how precious your life is.

I felt that way once too, not too long ago. My friends and family helped me get help. Please talk to a counselor/therapist, lean on your support system, call hotlines and reach out to the AFSP, and consider medication. I’m on lexapro and it’s changed my life. You can be happy, promise! ❤️
