Hello, thank you for reaching out to Ask Pat. You are very welcome.

It is very brave of you to tell us about your thoughts and how you are feeling. We know sometimes it can be difficult to explain and talk about our worries but talking to others does give us strength and may give us the support you deserve.

You say you want to die. You feel if you die then all the worries you are experiencing would disappear and you would be in complete bliss. It sounds like you have a lot going on in your thoughts and feelings.

We are very concerned to hear that you want to die. You have a right to live your life and be alive. We are sorry you are feeling worried and think the only way to get rid of your worries is to kill yourself. Have you spoken to your family about your suicidal thoughts? If you are finding it difficult to talk to someone in your family do you have another adult in your life who you trust or feel comfortable talking to about your thoughts and feelings? This adult could be a relative, neighbour, school counsellor, or your local doctor. You have a right to be listened to, to be understood, and to be heard. You have a right to seek help and support. Do you know your family has a responsibility to look after you and care for you, as well as listening to you?
