I'm scared of what could happen if I call a helpline number. My parents hate me. They tell me that practically every day. Sometimes it is like I live each day just to know the pain of tomorrow. Well I'm tired of doing that. I don't know what needs to be done but please help.
Your letter expresses the deep pain that you are feeling and this is of great concern to us. We wish that we could give you a clear and simple way to make it through your pain, but it is just not possible to adequately and appropriately address your feelings in this forum. Calling a hotline can be scary; that’s an understandable fear that many others have experienced too. We can assure you though, that walking through your fear and calling The Trevor Helpline at 866.4.U.TREVOR (866.488.7386) will be your first step towards easing your pain. Anything you talk about when you call will be kept confidential—you can even use a different name! But please call right away to speak with a caring counselor about your situation. You do not have to be alone with the pain you are feeling.
