I really need your help! I don't know why you are ignoring me. Maybe, you don't care about what I have to say...by the way this is my third letter?I go by the name of suicidal, I have written to you before, and now I know nobody cares about me, and I am giving up my fight, I will kill myself tonight!!
I hope you have received both of the responses to your other letters. There is an answer to your problem, but you have to let people around you know how desperate you are. Many people care that you do not harm yourself. Find someone nearby (a good friend, teacher, neighbor, or relative) who you can trust to help you decide how to handle this crisis, if you do not have a therapist you feel you can talk with. This problem seems very overwhelming today, but in time you will see it can be resolved and you can feel much better.
