A college in Louisiana is mourning Arlana Miller, who posted a suicide note on Instagram

A Louisiana middle school mourns the death of a freshman cheerleader found dead after posting a lengthy “suicide” note on social media.

Arlana Miller, 19, who attended Southern University and A&M College in Baton Rouge, wrote a heartbreaking Instagram post before she was found dead late Wednesday.

Screenshots of Miller’s disturbing final message circulating online showed she struggled in her classes at the historically black college where she majored in agriculture.

“I was surrounded by people who maybe honestly thought I was fine, but I [wasn’t] fine for a while,” Miller wrote. “I’ve struggled so much this year alone…to the people in my life, I pray you learn to express your feelings and always get help!!!”

Miller said she “failed” to follow her own advice while thanking her mother.

“I pray you know I’m resting now!” Miller’s message continued. “You would have given anything to see me happy…. I am happy in the water where everything is calm and peaceful. I have written so many suicide notes in my life but finally I have reached my end.

Miller said she knew she was close to letting loved ones down with her actions, but said her pain seemed “unbearable” to overcome.

“I’ve been dead inside for too long,” the post continued. “I’m done fighting. My battle is over and I pray that everyone finds peace in this.

Miller’s last post was no longer available on his profile on Friday. The account features several photos of the Texas native in her varsity cheerleading uniform.
