    Hi everyone,
    I'm working on a book about teenagers and depression/suicide. I'm a teen myself and I feel that the adults (counsillors, etc) just don't fully understand and if we want to do something about this, we need to do it ourselves. Thats why the book is being written.
    I'm looking for teenagers who would be willing to share their stories with me to put into the book (stories of why they're depressed, suicide attempts, etc). Poetry is also welcomed. If you want to contribute, please email me at davyscuddlytoy@yahoo.co.nz
  2. I'm 21, is that close enough? I have been suicidal since I was 2 years old. I was molested at that age but don't remember much except the pain. I don't know who it was but have my suspects. I sometimes think that's why I have been depressed most of my life. I was made fun of all the time in school; classmates called my sister "Amy AIDS" and joked around about all of us. I never knew why but I did always feel ugly. No matter how many times someone told me how pretty I was, I never believed them. Now I still feel worthless, ugly, and just about every other negative feeling, and the only reason I haven't killed myself YET is I have a wonderful husband and three beautiful kids who always keep me going. I won't kill myself until I KNOW no one needs me anymore.
