How do you talk to important people in your life about suicidal ideation? I can’t fathom talking about it and possibly confusing/hurting those close to me because I’m so deep in this pit of despair. I can only see myself hurting and isolating through this, but it’s hard being so mentally far away from the people I care about. And who I know care about me.

      You're in a hole and you want to get out, but you don't have the tools to get out. Your friends will stop by and give you tools and watch you try to get out on your own, but true friends or therapists who are trained to help will climb down with you and push you out when you're ready. It's not easy to talk about with anyone, but your true friends will be there for you and a good therapist is always there to talk to.

        @tiramisu I appreciate your perspective! It really is an issue about a lack of tools that realistically can make a difference for me. But I definitely have people who will listen to me and give me space to feel, and that’s all I can hope to do when I’m this deep in the hole.
