ANTHONY BOURDAIN!

Who doesn’t know who Anthony Bourdain is? Im not posting because Mental Health does not discriminate. I’m posting because this hits close to home for me for the many attempts that I’ve had.

I thank God somehow I seem to make it back to my children who really needs me. But this illness is really horrible. It’s not the life we want to end, it’s the pain. When you’re in that space in that moment you’re not able to think. You can’t process. From a patient prospective “ME”.

ENOUGH SAID, THIS TOO MUCH FOR ME TO HANDLE ALL I CAN DO IS CRY AND PRAY FOR THIS ILLNESS TO END. 😥🙏🏼

ACCORDING TO CNN

“ Suicide is a growing problem in the United States. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a survey Thursday showing suicide rates increased by 25% across the United States over nearly two decades ending in 2016. Twenty-five states experienced a rise in suicides by more than 30%, the government report finds.

How to get help: In the US, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. The International Association for Suicide Prevention and Befrienders Worldwide also can provide contact information for crisis centers around the world.

Mental Illness does not discriminate.💔

    Just as I pick up my pieces , once again they shatter . I appreciate that you shared something so personal . As you said – it’s when you’re in that moment . Not so much maybe wanting death- just wanting the pain to end , no matter the cost . I mean at that moment who is thinking of the cost ? Well as one left behind and whose younger and only brother made that choice , I just want people to know cost that is left behind once they leave us . It’s horrific. It’s devastating . It’s feelings of guilt . Just a few of the costs left behind that haunt your loved ones after that final act . I beg for everyone to show more love . Show compassion. Show you care . Let’s talk about it and not sweep it under the rug as if it doesn’t exist . Reach out one more time please . Make that call to talk with someone . The hurt and devastation left behind sucks the air right out of those you’ve left behind . 💔
