I feel so lonely and out of touch, it feels as if nobody can or wants to understand me.Things come to me automatically, but I cannot explain how I figured it out.I am afraid of dying but feel like I could easily take my own life.Mostly because tomorrow holds so much promise , but I feel that I am to weak and ill equipt within myself to make the most of everything and be proud of my achievements and myself and the end of the day. I am a waste of talent, there is so much that I wish I could take the chance on , but a fear grips me from deep down inside. Is it possible that someone will never learn to take the chances given, explain themselves so that somebody else can actually understand.Is my mental intelligence so low that I cannot describe my frustration as it is and not in words that other people use.
I give all I can but it never seems to be enough for myself let alone anyone else.
Its probably a good idea to get out now well I haven't lost too much

Dear 8Ball,
From what you say it's obvious that you are a highly intelligent ( but not yet wise ) and talented person capable of achiving really useful tings, but currently adrift without a good map or guidance system, setting yourself standards that are way too high, and apparently discounting anything you DO achieve as not worth anything. You need and deserve to see a good shrink to work on clarifying your goals in life, and planning how you will achieve them. "Get out now (while) I haven't lost too much" ? Suicide is the one guaranteed way to lose far too much, to lose it all, and for nothing whatsoever. Don't go that route.
