Someone told me this quote one time and now it's my favorite. "To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don't need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself." I just wanted to share that and remind people that it is okay to be different. The world would be pretty boring if we were all the same.
This is a safe environment for you to share you story and receive support from others. Please e-mail me under the 'Contact' tab; your thoughts, a title, and a signature, and I will publish them. (It is reviewed by me to make sure inappropriate language is not used.) After that, anyone can comment and share. You are not alone; suicidal thoughts and mental illness can strike anyone at anytime. Saying suicide and mental illness brings conversations to an end, but using the word is not the problem, it is the silence that follows.
