I have tried to attempt suicide and i am only 17

Mature ppl only: I've just left hosp. after attempted suicide , what do i do now? I had enough Friday morning and took an overdose and slit my entire forearms, left and right. I was taken to hospital, sorted out and have been arranged with councelling, therapy etc. However, I attempted suicide before,and someone i look up to as my mum, told me if I did it again, then she wouldn t speak me anymore. In the rush of hating myself etc, i didn t think of this whist killing myself, and I am now left in a massive rut. I literally cannot live wthout her support, and she won t talk to me anymore; it doesn t seem bad to someone who doesn t understand but i m 17, live in my own flat, and am having allsorts of troubles. As she was the one that showed me things that are as near to a normal family life as possible, i really do see her as my mum. I don t know how to get her back; i ve said sorry, i just can t find the words properly. I want to talk to her, but I don t know just how much to show how i need her. Please help, thanks.

Hi,Pedro,thanks for query.Rather then you it is her who is punished.She is doing this to your because she cares for you.Try to put your self in place of her and then think.Do not worry things will become fine with time.Please understand that life is very precious and parents spend their sleepiness nights and take many troubles to raise a child.You have no right to kill your self like this.What ever big your problem may be,they are never bigger then life.Have good circle of friends with whom you can share your worries.As far as your mother is concerned she will definitely speak with you once she is satisfied that you have become mature and not you will not do anything that can hurt you.
wishing you a bright and healthy life ahead.
