“Years ago I had a failed attempt @ suicide. What people don’t get is that many don’t really want to go thru with it. It’s d pain you want to kill not yourself.

In that fleeting sec you’re still hoping someone will save u.

I’m grateful 4 my turnaround & bonus yrs #depression.

If you’re in that place called depression, I promise you that a turn around is possible.. Talk to someone. There is no shame in admitting you need help and getting it. All that matters is your recovery. Thankfully more people understand Mental illness better now.
