Hey, we’ve been there
Please realize that we understand what you are going through because we’ve been where you are at right now. We felt lost. We felt alone. We felt stuck in a dark hole and hated our existence. Each of us wanted to end the pain, and we all thought there was only one way out. Only one way to fix the brokenness. Thankfully we found help. And that’s why we’re grateful you’re here.
If you need to speak with someone urgently, here are some resources to keep you alive. Please get help and fight to stay alive. We want you to stay alive. We did, and are thankful for it.

Suicide is a permanent solution to a crisis point that will pass. Circumstances and feelings change, so don’t let this moment rob you of the better times ahead.
We have many articles specifically on suicide. They are raw, intense, and powerful. Not the mental health rhetoric written by ‘professionals’ that you would expect – firsthand experience from others just like you. Please check them out.
