    I love my parents/family and I know they care, but no, I never have and probably never would. I seldom even tell close friends that I'm feeling badly depressed or suicidal.. they usually only hear it after I've gone and did something absolutely stupid.

    What was their reaction. Hope you don't mind me asking.

    Though I think I know why you don't want to tell your parents, but mind sharing why personally?

    One my siblings, I think, he knows that I was in a lot of trouble and almost ended up in the hospital. Once I finally saw him in person, I don't know whether it's accidental, but he played a song about dying another day and it's 'not the time to go'. I think he thinks the song might cheer me up because I was able to pull it off.

    Hell it didn't...

    I nearly told my Dad yesterday, but I didn't. He suffers from depression also, and it can be very hard to open up about these things in case it triggers him.

    I told my mum and she wasn't supportive at all. She was more ashamed of me for being depressed.
    I know that feeling. It sucks.

    I guess it's partly because they're hard to communicate these things with and because it's uncomfortable. My mum's never, ever been the protective kind so I'm uncomfortable when she's tried. I guess it's just easier to sort it out with friends.

    Yeah I can understand that. My mom is protective of me but she never showed it much so I'm a bit uncomfortable as well telling her my problems. So I guess I could relate.

    I've thought about asking for help from family but I dont think they would understand suicidal people are "selfish" after all. I've dropped some hints but the reaction i've had hasnt been a sympathetic one its more them being selfish and thinking of themselves. I dont think any bar a professional can help really someone who actually understands how worthless a life can be, wouldnt degrade myself by going to one though.
    I've got my plan for ending it just waiting for the weather to change and thats it, I dont have a life anymore I'm just a ghost but what I do I have is mine and I can end it anyway I choose, my family arnt going to stop me they cant understnad how painful it to just wake up each morning and just exists there's nothing there.

    What do you mean you won't degrade yourself by going to one? Seeking help from professionals?

    I tried with my family doctor a few weeks ago, he basically told me was I wasting his time, it took a lot to get the courage to get to point, its humiliating to admit something like that and be met with contempt makes it worse wouldnt seek help again ...he's getting a full paragraph in my suicide note I hope the prick gets struck off.

    He's an absolute *******! Don't listen to him. Could you find another GP? Please, try again. That's what I did with my previous counselor. He's one ****ed up man going around telling one of my distant family members that I went on consulting him . So I tried again with another Counselor and it's been fine so far.

    There isnt any point, I'm 100% I want this, I've though it out decide how and when I will do it and that's. It's actually quite a release, I dont have to deal with the things that crush me anymore I dont need to worry about anything at all I'm invincible. A few more weeks and it will be over.

    I told my mother about my suicidal feelings and she just told me I was going through a teenage phase and it would get better. When I continued to tell her how awful I've been feeling these past few months, she got a bit fed up with me and told me to "go outside and get a job instead of lurking around."
    She's the only person I've ever told and to be honest I don't think I'll be telling anyone else after that awful conversation.

    Same here. My family members (actions) are ultimately the cause of my suicidal thoughts and other horrid negative feelings.

    I never told my parents, my housemates told them when I was in the hospital after a very near attempt. My advice? Tell them yourself. It makes matters much easier...

    you probably might not see this cuz your anon but dont worry, their existence on this planet will become indifferent to you, and then whatever they say/do wont worry you

    I told my dad once. He's a counsellor so really easy to talk to, I could talk to him about anything. I can't remember what exactly was said or how it came about. He did ask me if I had an idea how to do it but I wouldn't tell him.

    I haven't. I remember the first time when I told my parents that I thought I had a problem and once I started telling them how I hated myself, etc, well...that was the first and only time I've ever seen my dad cry. This was four years ago. They believed then and still do believe that it's a teenage phase and I doubt that I'll ever be able to share with them the extent to which I sometimes feel so low that I'm suicidal. I know that it would break their heart, I can't stand the fuss, and they evidently just wouldn't understand. However, if you have the confidence to tell your parents, do it. I'd love the support from mine, it would probably make things so much easier.
