    question

    What do you do when you don't want to live anymore, but you're too scared to die?

    Hi Kayla!

    I have responded to your other threads as well but I just wanted to pop in here and say hello!

    I am so sorry to hear that you are struggling so much. Have you told anyone how you are feeling? It can be hard to talk about your feelings and emotions with other people, but it can also really help!

    Do you have anything positive or happy that you can focus on when you think about the future? Sometimes when I am super stressed out and upset, I think about something in particular that I am looking forward to, or if I am not looking forward to anything in particular, I start something like a favorite tv show re-watch on Netflix. I've found that focusing on one of my favorite shows keeps me distracted and keeps me from overthinking personal things. Do you think that would help you?

    There's also always the option of calling the youth helpline Your Life Your Voice. I left all of their information in your other thread, but in case you need it again, their number is 1-800-448-3000, and you can find them online at http://www.yourlifeyourvoice.org/Pages/home.aspx.


    Stay strong! You can get through this!
