I think I am planning to commit suicide. I am not scared anymore, how can I help myself? I pray, I want to change, I just can’ t accept who I am. No more shrinks or pills. No one believes me. I am a Christian and want to go to heaven. WHAT AM I SUPPOSE TO DO?

Don't consider suicide, which is inappropriate, especially in the sort of situation your describing. Though homosexuality itself is no longer considered pathological or abnormal by shrinks, there has been a potential diagnosis for someone who feels very bad about their sexual orientation, whatever it may be --- and it would be a good idea to see a shrink, preferably a gay-friendly one recommended by a gay organization --- not because such a shrink would have any remote interest in persuading you to be gay ( o r not gay ) but because they'd be comfortable dealing with the topic and your concerns, without freaking out about it as some might do !
and from the sound of it, whatever else is happening, you may very well be seriously Depressed, and deserving so me proper treatment for that, anyway
