Ask Jigsaw: Would people remember me?
Do you think if i killed myself people would remember me because i feel like I’m not the kinda person to be dwelled, School is getting harder and harder and sometimes it feels like i cant breathe with the persure being put on me, Sorry for bothering you with my problems feel free to ignore x
Thank you for getting in touch and talking about these difficult feelings. It sounds like things are really tough for you at the moment.
I would urge you to get support, and there are a number of options. First of all, think if there is an adult in your life who you could talk to about these feelings. It could be a family member, teacher or any one you trust. If it’s hard to say things out loud, you could show them this message and let them know that it is you.
It would be good to get help from a service which is trained to support people who are feeling suicidal. I’m not sure what you would prefer, so I’m going to give a few options.

· The Crisis Text Line gives immediate text message support by a trained volunteer. You can text SPUNOUT to 086 1800 280 to begin.
· The Samaritans have a helpline. Call 116123
When people feel so bad that they think about killing themselves, it is really important that they get the right support. Often when people feel suicidal, it’s not that they want to die, but that they want things in their life to be different. It can be hard, in the middle of feeling this bad, to see how things could be different. However, talking to someone can help us see alternatives and ways forwards.
