Girl has been having a hard time and is contemplating suicide. She decides to get help, and after a time of healing and support, she is able to get through days and be happier.
Ellie has been struggling with being sad and down almost constantly and she has not talked to anyone about it. She has been cycling very dark thoughts and has contemplated suicide.
I feel horrible. I feel sad all the time and no one understands. What if...
She decided that she should seek help and talk to her counselor. She is a trusted adult and Ellie knows that she cares about her students.
I can't keep going on like this. I need help and I need to talk to someone. I can trust my counselor. I know she cares about me.
Please help me. I don't know what to do. I am always sad and I keep thinking very bad things.
Thank you and okay.
