Thank you for saying this.

Also, being with a popular friend that has hair that everyone loves brings me down so much. I sit there with a high ponytail that is dead and gross. I literally sit there ignored while she gets compliments on her straight and shiny hair.
Our school counselor does NOT help, and it's summer right now... My parents? I don't have a dad (well I did, but you know) and my mom chooses favorites with her kids.. I'm not one of them. I really have asked this question a million times and now this is where I finally snapped. I have tried to kill myself already. I keep failing. It's not an effect, it's how I truly feel.

Feeling suicidal - regardless of what's causing it - is not normal and you are a danger to yourself. You know this because you already made one suicide attempt. Also, the world would be at a great loss without you in it.

I know you're overwhelmed right now and feeling really bad about yourself, but the fact that you're being honest w/us about how you feel shows you are searching for the help you need, and that is great.

You just need a little help right now and there's nothing wrong with that. So please, contact the hotline and come back here (when/if you feel like it) to let us know how it all went.

Even if your brain is telling you right now that there isn't much to be hopeful about, there's plenty of hope for you.
