I need help!

by strawberrycrown

There’s no easier way to say this – I need help. I don’t care who, what, when, where, why or how, I just care that I get help. I don’t get how everyone can say there is so much help you can get out there when every time I try to seek help, I fail. Is it the universe’s way of telling me that I’m hopeless and can’t be helped or I don’t deserve to be? Because that is how it feels. The amount of times that I have tried to reach out to a professional and been unsuccessful is not okay. It genuinely confuses the fuck out of me but oh well. All this supposed help out there, why is there none for me? Like I used to just want to be able to chat with someone but now I actually seriously need help, need advice and need a professional as my shit has developed. So I’ll say it again, somebody please help me because I sure need it!

The short answer is that you (we) are screwed.

Just a few days ago there was a great editorial in the news about how help is unavailable, even though everyone shoves it down your throat that it’s there. It talked about suicide hotlines and support groups that point you in the direction of professional help that is either too expensive, unavailable, ineffective or outright inept. That’s the real truth.

The article said that these gateway services are like opening doors into a building that’s empty.

I suppose our best strategy is to accept it and try to find our own resources, then cure ourselves. That sounds like a losing strategy but it’s better than false hope in a support system that doesn’t exist.

The article and what you’re saying sounds exactly like what I think. And yes, unfortunately we really are just given false hope…

AXYZ, although help is hard to find, it definitely exists. True health exists. These words “True health” may seem meaningless for many people, especially for the people here who are very far from health, peace and life.

If you want, I will post one of my email addresses here and you may contact me. What will happen is that you will receive an email from me with some of the things which helped me on my own way to recovery, health and peace. They really work and I will also show you what harmful habits may damage the mind and lead it to suicidal thinking, depression and other horrible mental states. I can also lead you to some very relevant and free websites run by professionals and innovative thinkers with very good sound advice. This may be a new beginning for your life.

I will also talk about the dimensions of life where you need to work on and pay attention to in order to improve your life and escape from the hell of suicide and also what to avoid.

Basically, that will be all in that single email. But if you want, we can discuss your problems.

I want to do this because I liked to read your posts when I was still in much pain myself and I like your personality. It would be my joy to help you.

What I write here is also available for the author of this post or anyone who thinks he or she may benefit from the advice of my email. (advice which will direct you on your own way to recovery).

You may catch this opportunity now and let me share with you what I have humbly learned from others, much more knowledgeable than me because I may never come on this website.

And remember, darkness and ignorance bind someone to his or her own hell.

Although what you wrote was not aimed at me, it does sound very helpful for me personally. If you’re happy to, I would love an email?

AYXZ is spot on, there is NO help out there. I deduced from your post that your young, so it’s vital you find that out now, time is on your side. I tried every so called help under the sun and nothing
Worked. Mental health professionals are in it for the money, they dont care if you get better or don’t. I repeat you’re young so don’t put your faith in external help, it just doesn’t work that way. Perhaps vent to a trusted family member or true friend just don’t get your hopes up on so called professional help.

Yes I am 17, and I do hope to have many years ahead of me and in this time I wonder if I’m going to find help or if like you say I’m better of helping myself or using those close to me to do so.

You need a good friend with good advice, after all these professionals basically do that.

There is only so much that advice can do but honestly that sounds like my best option at the moment.

Word! I am here today because I can find no solution. I called my daughter up begging for her assistance finding a solution. Her response was pretty much to the effect of what do you want me to do, Mom? Gee, thanks a lot. I NEED HELP. Everyone says if you need help ask but if you actually do, excuses are made and no one helps you. Public resources seem to deadend like commenter said above and/or you make either too little money or – ironically – too much. Nothing like being in that gray area where your income is $100-$200 too high for things like Medicaid. This myth of help is there if you need it, is just that – a myth. No one cares. Not really.
