For those who have survived suicide.
Hi I just have been feeling the need to share my story with someone and this seems the place to do. I am 25 years old I have two children and a year ago I tried to kill myself. It is something that has become an everyday question as to was it really that bad that I needed to end my own life. Well at the time it was but now I realize that it would have stop my pain but only increased the pain of my family. I understand that everyone is different, but from first hand experience I am here to say that there is nothing that is that bad. I was afraid to talk to anyone because I didn’t know how they would react or what they would do. I guess really what I am saying is if you feel that bad please find that one person to talk to . I remember waking up in the hospital to see all my family standing around and I didnt understand what they were doing. My dad told me what I had done and the first words out of my mouth were I really didn’t want to die. I promise you that there is someone out there who will listen to you and will help you. I look back and think maybe if I would have just talked to someone maybe I wouldn’t have to wonder everyday why I thought that was the best choice for me to make. Now since that has happened I have managed to turn mylife around. I am not saying that is simple because I promise you that I still have days that I fell horrible, but I have learned how to cope. Thanks for whoever reads this.
