For those in "a dark place" Answered
We seem to be attracting a number of troubled souls at the moment.
Without wanting to reject any cries for help outright, most people here are ill-equipped to offer useful, non-judgemental advice.
If you are reading this in the UK, may I recommend The Samaritans?
I have had personal experience of their services when trying to help a close friend who tried to commit suicide, and I found them to be clear, rational people with a far better understanding of the depressed or teenage mind than I do.
Their website is http://www.samaritans.org
Their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Their phone number in the UK is 08457 90 90 90
Their phone number in the ROI is 1850 60 90 90
If you are not in the UK/ROI then they recommend using http://www.befrienders.org/ to find similar help and advice in your country.
As I said, this is not meant as a rejection - we will help if we can - but there are people infinitely better at providing suitable, non-judgemental, anonymous advice.
If any American readers know of similar organisations in the US, please add links to their websites.
