Thank you for your letter. Reaching out for help can be very difficult. Although you don't like talking, telling a trusted adult, your parents, a teacher, or a school counselor can help reduce the sense of isolation.
Depression may be behind suicidal thoughts. Some indications of depression may include lack of energy, chronic fatigue, isolation from your friends and family, diminished interest in usually pleasurable activities, changes in eating and sleeping habits, and a general sense of helplessness.

Alejandra, you mentioned taking your pills. Have you told your doctor about the lack of effectiveness regarding the medication? Sometimes, dosage must be adjusted to achieve results. Everyone at the Trevor Project cares about you and your well being. IF you ever feel you may act on suicidal thoughts, get to the emergency room at the nearest hospital. Your immediate safety is crucial in those dark moments. Continue reaching out for assistance. Alejandra, you are not alone.
