Things you can do right now:

It seems like you have a lot going on right now. First and foremost I want to thank you for having the courage to reach out to us and sharing your story with TeenCentral. Be proud of yourself for taking the first step and asking for help.

I’m sorry to hear about your dad. Grief and loss is a very difficult thing to deal with. There are common responses you may experience such as feeling emotionally out of control. If you click on our “Learn” tab, there is an entire section on Grief and Loss.” 

On the “Learn” tab you can also find information on Anxiety and Depression. For Anxiety, it talks bout the different types of anxiety, ways to cope with it and identifying triggers. For Depression it talks about signs and symptoms as well as warning signs.

You mentioned you don’t want to kill yourself but you want the suffrage to end, this can be overwhelming. If you ever feel unsafe or feel as if you need to talk to someone please reach out to our Suicide Prevention Hotline. They are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. You can reach them by visiting the website at: or texting “HOME” to 741741. There is always someone just a text away.

Have considered talking to someone about how you are feeling? A trusted adult such as a teacher, guidance counselor or a family member? You also might be able to take a look at a professional such as an outpatient therapist. You could find this individual by looking at the back of your insurance card and calling that number. They will be able to find who is in network for you, and who might be located near you.  Being able to talk to someone might help feel like a weight is lifted off your shoulders. This might help alleviate things and maybe bring a different perspective.

If you are up for it:

Have you considered writing in a journal? Sometimes that’s a great way to get out thoughts out and even use it as a source of communication. Journaling does some amazing things to the brain, because unlike talking we are processing through many different parts of the brain allowing for us to process through the event in its entirety.

Have you tried positive self-talk? Spending at least 5 minutes a day with positive affirmations has been linked to a more positive mind set. There are many resources out there on what some of the statements could be. For example: I am smart, I am kind, I am important.

Lastly, take a look in our Tools section. We have a great tool called the Conflict Conversation Organizer. This can help organize some of the thoughts that you are having when you are feeling overwhelmed by emotion when talking to someone that you might be in conflict with.
