OKLAHOMA -

A 16-year-old is sharing his story after trying to take his own life just one week ago. He was released from the hospital on Wednesday after treatment following an intentional overdose.

The boy agreed to share his story without being identified. He hoped some other teen contemplating suicide would see his story and find a different way to cope with the constant bullying some fall victim to every day.

"You feel like you have no... there's no point to life, and that you're actually worth nothing," he recalled as he collected his thoughts.

His girlfriend's parents found him unconscious and not responding near his friend's gravesite.

"I tried to end it," he said. "The last thing I remember was walking from my car to his grave site."

The boy said constant bullying at school pushed him to the breaking point, which is when he tried to kill himself with an overdose, but did not succeed.

"First thing I remember is opening my eyes and seeing my mom," he said.

He added the second chance at life put so much into perspective for him.

"People do care and I'm not alone," said the teen. "Speak up. In the end it's going to be work it."

He said the number one thing he hopes to pass along is to speak up. He wished he did that before trying to take his own life.

If you or someone you know is contemplating suicide, you can call the emergency crisis line at (800)-522-9054.
