If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please get help and consider contacting The Trevor Project. You do have people that love you. There are people you can go to for a hug or to let you know that you matter. I can tell you from experience it does get better. Maybe I’ll have the time or inclination to post my story soon (update…I have. Here).
