I am going to cry..

By August 1, 2022No Comments

I am going to cry I need someone to talk to. I hate my life, I feel like no one cares about me because I tried to talk to my mom but she always is working. I feel like I need more help my ex family told me to kill myself now we have some things going on and they told me I need to stop being trans or she’s going to make me feel even more bad about myself. I tried to stay calm but all I do is cry thinking about it and typing about it right now I just feel like my ex family really wants me dead for just being trans! This is not right for what they said to me and they are talking bad about my sisters and my mom and my step dad. I just need a therapist or someone to talk to for now.

CONSIDER THIS FOR NOW:

  • Thank you for sharing your story with our TC community. It sounds like you are really struggling right now and it’s never easy to share such a private issue.
  • If you ever feel you want to hurt yourself in the future it would certainly be better to reach out to one of our favorite crisis lines such as  www.crisistextline.org. You can do this by going to the website, or by texting “HELLO” to 741741. The other option you can take is to reach out to the link below. This hotline is designed for the LGBTQ community. It might be beneficial to talk to someone who may have gone through what you are experiencing and they may be able to provide you with even more resources then we can here.

HELP YOURSELF:

  • Work on building up your support system so you have others to talk to. Join a club, activity, or sport. Is there a LGBTQ group at your school or a designated safe space teacher/guidance counselor?
  • Perhaps there is a family member that can help you communicate your feelings to your other members to help them understand how you’re feeling. Sometimes it takes people a little to create a different perspective. It is not ok for someone to tell you to ” kill yourself” however and is something that you can reach out to discuss with someone . They might be able to give some more resources , and tips on how to communicate with this individual.

  • If you would like to find a therapist near you there are some options on how to do this. You would look on the back of your/ your parents insurance card and find the number for mental health. When you contact that number they will give you a variety of individuals that take your insurance . You then might have to be on a small wait list, but they would be able to discuss further.
