You need to talk to your parents and tell them how you are feeling. Your life is still worth living. Try to keep the faith that you will overcome this. There are some support chat rooms for teens with RSD, but I think one on one might be better for you. Maybe your parents can find a local support group for you. I know this is hard, but killing yourself is NOT the answer! Keep trying until they find what works for you. Good luck....try to keep strong.
