Hi there and welcome to Ask Alex.
Thank you for getting in touch with us here at Ask Alex. We are sorry to hear that things are so hard for you right now, and you feel so alone. It is great that you reached out to us; you have been so brave.
We are sorry to hear that you are feeling lonely and have no one to talk to. We are wondering if you have felt like this for long? Sometimes, we feel lonely even when we have people around us due to a disconnect between ourselves and those in our lives. Is this something that you feel applies to you? If so, it might be helpful for you to consider who you are, who you would like to be, and think about how you could reach out and connect with like-minded people.
We would be concerned to hear that you feel like ‘a burden and should just die.’ Your feelings of being a burden seem to be weighing hugely on you. Sometimes, we may need the help of a medical professional, like a doctor or a counsellor, and you have the right to access these people. If you have a look at the following websites, they may be able to offer you some comfort: www.yourmentalhealth.ie; www.jigsaw.ie. There are also some articles on the Childline website which you may find helpful: www.howifeel.childline.ie.
If you would like to have a chat about how you’re feeling, you can always contact us here at Childline by clicking on the Live Chat button on this website or giving us a call on 1800 66 66 66. You can talk about anything you want to, and we are here to listen to whatever you would like to say. We can talk through what options are available to you.
Take care of yourself, and please reach out soon for the support you deserve. Remember, you do not have to go through this tough time on your own. We are here for you,
