You're in SO much pain...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Kate, I've edited out the specifics of what you want to do to yourself, but I will address what you wrote. You are in a crisis situation. No one here can get you the help you need. Talk to a school counsellor about what you are dealing with and what you are thinking about doing. Contact your local crisis centre for more resources. Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) is another resource. You need to talk to someone about the abuse you are dealing with and the harm you want to do to yourself. Child Help is staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose what you are dealing with. You don't want to die, Kate. What you want is for the pain to stop. Please call and talk to someone who can help you with that pain. You deserve to have someone help you with that pain. You're too precious and worthy and lovable to HAVE to suffer in that pain alone. You are NOT alone, Kate. There are people out there who want to help, but you have to reach out to them. Call and talk to someone.
