While you are looking for someone, it is important for you to know that the thought that you have done things that are too bad to reveal is often a symptom of depression. It is hard to be realistic about yourself when you are feeling sad, empty and alone. Just talking to another person may put things in better perspective. Finally, if you ever have thoughts of harming yourself, there are suicide hotlines that will welcome your call at any hour, including this one: 1-800-784-2433 (1-800-Suicide)
I hope that you find a counselor soon whom you can trust and feel comfortable around.
