Hi there, thanks for getting in touch with Ask Alex.
First of all, we want to say that we’re really glad you reached out. It takes a lot of courage to open up about what you’re going through, especially when it feels like nobody is listening.
It sounds like you’re dealing with a lot of pain and feeling incredibly alone right now, and that’s a really tough place to be in.
It’s understandable that you’re feeling frustrated with your parents. It’s hard when you try to communicate how you’re feeling, and it seems like they’re not hearing you or taking you seriously. Feeling misunderstood by the people who are supposed to support you can be incredibly isolating.
We want you to know that what you’re experiencing is valid, and you deserve to have your feelings heard and respected. You’re not alone in this, and there are people who care about you and want to help.
It might be helpful to reach out to a trusted adult or counsellor who can provide you with the support and resources you need to get through this difficult time. Also, is an organisation which can help and support you with your suicidal ideation. It is so important that you get support with this as soon as possible.
Your GP can also refer you to other services where you can get professional medical treatment, should you require it. You deserve support, and you have the right to life.
