My life has just started to fall apart and I cannot put any of the pieces back together again. I have never seen a doctor or taken any medication before because I have never felt like this before. I just want to end everything because I just don’t want to fight anymore. I have realized I just want to be alone for most days because I don’t want anyone having to deal with me or my problems. I feel like it would be better for everyone if I just took myself out of the equation completely. I think about suicide everyday because I don’t think there would be an easier way. I know life always gets better, but right now, it doesn’t seem like it is going anywhere but down. (From the USA)Thinking about Suicide
