Hello, you are very welcome to Ask Pat,
Thank you so much for trusting us with your thoughts. We know it can be difficult, but we also know how great it is for young people to share their problems. Talking about and sharing what is going on for you is a big step forward.
You say your school makes you feel pain and no one plays with you. You hate school and sometimes you want to kill yourself. You are feeling a lot of pain.
We are sorry that you are going through such a bad time in school. It sounds like this is a really difficult time for you. We would be really concerned for you. You are taking the right steps in reaching out and seeking help. We are glad you reached out to Ask Pat, you have are very brave. It is very important that you get help for how you are feeling. You have a right to be happy in school and to be heard and to get the support you deserve.
If you are thinking of acting on your thoughts of suicide, it is important to seek medical help immediately! Please contact your local GP, call the emergency services at 999 or 112, or present yourself to an A&E department.
Would there be a trusted adult that you could chat with about how you are feeling? This adult could be your parents, an aunt, uncle, or grandparent. We know that it can be hard to open up to someone who is close to us, so maybe talking to somebody outside of your family who you are comfortable talking to might work better for you at first. How would you feel about talking to a teacher in your school about what is going on? It is your teacher’s and principal’s job to make sure you are safe and happy in school.
