I am 16 years old & want to tell you about my story. If you have anxiety , panic attacks, depression ect do not give up! I felt so hopeless & so scared, i honesty thought my life was over. I tried everything and nothing seemed to work. I stopped eating , going out, caring about myself. I eventually went to see a physiologist and they sent me to the hospital. With help , patience and love you will get through it! Take time by the minute even by the seconds . This experience is only making you stronger!
Having lost a son through mental health I know there is so much that needs to be done ..
Michael took his own life in 2001His life could have been saved but lack of intervention from the doctors who pushed his case to one side prevented this . As the years have passed nothing has changed .. All the help from friends and family count being there counts .. it could save a life ❤
I pledge to end the stigma by telling others about the ugly side of mental illness so that we can support those who's story is tragic and dark just like those who are more acceptable to our senses. All lives matter no matter what they have done in the grips of psychosis. Everyone should know that sometimes this disease is a monster we can't control.
So, I had self-harmed because of issues with family, and the pressure of school. I ended up feeling worthless and dead inside. I began to use a broken ruler, with the edge sharpened to a point, but it got worse over time, until I attempted to take my life by trying to hang myself from my bedroom light; I was found lying on the floor on my room with the string around my neck. My point: Tell someone else that you trust, whether it is friends, family member or seek help online, otherwise it could lead to much darker thoughts.
