I'm not sure there is the national number I can call

Try the number MSBB posted. Talk to someone there and they can steer you in the right direction (either talking to someone there or regionally.) I think you'll find that many other people feel the same way.

Suicide Hotline - Tel: 1.800.SUICIDE (784.2433)

Call and talk to them. They may not ask for much personal information.

You call, you talk and they listen. Usually you end up feeling better.

I called them a few times when I was around 13-14...they helped.

I didn't feel so alone afterward.

They're used to shy people and people having difficulty talking in general so give them a call and try.

Is the a Samartians suicide prevention group in your area? Check on line. They often have a service for teens but they can assist you in any case.

RE: Suicide
Just hang in there, talk to someone at the suicide line (you can stay anonymous) and don't be applying permanent solutions to temporary problems.

Many of us have been where you are, me too.

To think all the things I would have missed out on... so glad I got over it and ended up enjoying life.

17 - you almost made it through the teenage years - the hardest ones. Please go talk to someone...

You are at a stage in your life where everything can be turned upside down. You're 17 and are starting your adult life. Growing up means changing as a person which also means potentially losing childhood friends. Your parents are rejecting you because you are an atheist, but they probably still see you as a child and think that they still have control over you (parents can have real trouble letting go).

My own experience of depression was that I got trapped into a cycle of thinking negative thoughts, dwelling on negative experiences and becoming more depressed as a result. Shyness is also a self propagating cycle in that you avoid social situations and this erodes your self confidence.

Stress comes from a lack of control, or at least the perception of it. Consequently self harm, suicidal thoughts, anorexia etc, are many different ways in which people try to get some control over their lives.

But you do actually have control, you may just not realise it yet. You can move out, start a new life and remove the stressors in your current life. You can start looking after your health, start exercising, eating healthily etc. Eventually this will break the cycle of depression, your confidence will grow and you can make new friends. Eventually your parents will have to accept you for who you are.

You may need to wait a bit before you can start taking control, but in the meantime you can start making plans. Whatever your situation, you don't have to be trapped like this for the rest of your life if you don't want to be.

The trick is to start thinking of the future, not the present or the past.

Many of us have felt that way. You're in a tough phase of life.
