    Hi Akeko,

    I'm glad you came here to talk things over. It's good that you're seeking help -- that's a great sign.

    It sounds like your friend was having a lot of problems herself. Maybe you can just forget about what she said, and just chalk it up to her saying things she didn't mean, when she was at a low point in her own life. But either way, you have to decide for yourself that YOU are worth fighting for, because you deserve to live and feel better, and to be well.

    Have you ever called Your Life Your Voice? They are so helpful and awesome, and easy to talk to. You can reach them ANY time by phone, 1-800-448-3000. That number works 24/7, and the call is free and confidential. Or, they also have texting from 6 pm to midnight (Central Time) every evening. To text them, just send VOICE to 20121. They also have online chat (at certain times) and email (24/7)... to read all the details, just click here.

    We want to be part of your support team... come here any time to talk things over with us. We care about you!

    Hi Akeko, I'm so sorry you're feeling so poorly. I can't imagine how it would feel to be told something like that. Did you get a chance to call the Your Life Your Voice helpline? I hope today is feeling a little bit better, but I wanted to point you in the direction of some fact sheets that might help you. I really hope they do.
