How one friend saved me from self-harm and suicide
My name is Katey, and I suffer from depression. I engage in self-harm and have suicidal thoughts. This is mostly caused by my childhood experiences.
My childhood has caused me to become depressed. I have trouble with self-harming now, for a way to release my pain. And the hardest thing for me is my suicidal thoughts.
I still suffer from all these troubles, but my best friend has helped me so much. If it weren’t for her, I don’t know if I would even be here today. She’s always there for me, and she has given me such wonderful insight on the way to look at things. She’s really such an inspiration to me; she’s my role model. I love her; I feel I owe her my life for all she’s done for me.
My message is that, when you think you are all alone, and nobody cares, there is always at least ONE person who does. You just have to find them.
So, no matter what you’re going through, just know that somebody cares. And if you’re having suicidal thoughts, talk to someone. They can give you information, and tell you things that you’ve never heard or known before, and it will make you think so much differently on the situation.
