Talking about fears and feelings is difficult - even to those we know love and care about us. This can prevent other people from recognising the distress and being able to help in a crisis. Words are often totally inadequate to convey the amount of pain a person may be suffering. It is easy to understand that someone is hurting if they have been badly injured or are physically ill. Emotional pain cannot be seen, but it can be just as unbearable.
Sometimes attempting suicide may be the only way to show other people how bad things are. 'When your back is up against the wall, suicide can seem to be the only way out.' But it's not. There is HOPE.
