    Call this number:1-800-273-8255National Suicide Prevention LifelineThey will know how to help you and should know how to handle your situation! Its really tough when you have parents who arent very understanding! I know how you feel! Suicide is very serious and shouldnt be taken lightly and its good that youre seeking help! The fact that the migraine pills dont work might mean they are brought upon by psychological issues, Im not totally sure, though! Its obvious youre parents are not going to help and are ignorant on the matter of depression and suicide, so I wouldnt bother asking them for help, they will only make the situation worse for you! Do whats best for YOU, not anyone else, and call this number! I hope everything works out for you!
