"Shitty" News - That Would be an Understatement

Well, I have a little brother. He's 12. He's also been diagnosed with OCD. Other than that, yeah, he's a normal kid. Plays sports, has a lot of friends, is a straight A-student, etc.

But the OCD is getting worse. He has to constantly stop what he's doing and stay still. Sometimes for seconds; sometimes for minutes. Those are called "ticks".

Well, my mom just told me that, after he had talked to his psychiatrist, he admitted he has, at least once, contemplated suicide. At 12 fucking years old.

...I don't even know what to do.

    Make it known to him that he's important and that his ticks aren't something to be ashamed of.

    That...

    Yeah. I mean, I thought today sucked ass for me, dude. But that's just... there aren't really words.

    Suicide... that's just screwed up. I hope he gets help on the suicide, and that his OCD doesn't get any worse, or it gets better if it can.

    He's not ashamed of them. They make life hell for him, though.

    I'll talk to him. What worries me is, he's had this thought and showed no signs of it at all.

    I say, make sure he knows that you're there for him. I know it doesn't directly help the situation, but it's nice to know that you have someone there for you. Especially a brother, for some reason.

    I hope that everything goes well. If you need to talk to someone, I added you on AIM. Stay strong.

    what I have learned is that it is always nice to have someone to talk to, just like I have some people at school, and when they are upset, I ask if Ican go talk to them for a minute, and just let them open up.
    if you do that for your brother, it might help him a bit, it has always been hard for me to experience loss, in any way, shape, or form. what I think your brother is thinking about committing suicide for is that he has no one to talk to, and that he is just a waste of life to him. just make sure he has someone or something to talk to for when he get's upset.

    if I offended you in any way shape or form from this, I am sorry, that is just what I would think of that is I was put into that situation.
