It often helps to share a problem with someone who accepts you as you are, does not tell you what to do and gives you as much time as you need. And this is especially true when you feel so desperate that you are thinking of suicide.

If you need someone to talk to or write to.......
The Befrienders are waiting to hear from you.

In order to offer help, we need help!
