Talk to SOMEONE: Why do you automatically eliminate seeing a therapist as a possibility for you? If you're constantly thinking about death and such, please at least talk to a parent -- or even a pastor or a school counselor. If you're depressed, help is available from these resources and more. Your physician and/or a psychiatrist can be helpful also.

Talk to someone: your teacher, parent, friend, neighbor cares. So talk to everyone and find out who will listen and has some opinions so you can decide what you beleive in. Call liveperson dot com for online therapy that you pay for, its online or phone sessions. Tell your parent you want to talk to a counselor and see what happens. Hopefully they take it seriously and take you in.
