Hello, samurai_777,

The level of your distress is very serious. I do not know what the local resources are in your area, so I'll try to give several suggestions. Since you are in college, there likely is a counseling office or department. If so, please make an appointment and ask for help in deciding what to do next. If there is no such resource at your college, discuss it with a trusted teacher, or the dean. If there is a public mental health agency, please make an appointment there and explain that it is urgent as you have contemplated ending your life. See your regular physician, and discuss it with him or her. Do any or all of these things, as soon as you can. In the meantime, please remember: there is help for you somewhere, and one of these people will be able to direct you to it. You are a valuable person, and I want you to live. Take it one step at a time, one day at a time.

Good luck to you.
