I tried to kill myself about a year ago. I felt as though nobody loved me and that my life was worth nothing. I was sexually abused by a neighbour when I was younger and told no one.
I felt like I had nothing to live for and just wanted to end it all. I was on medication for depression but it wasn’t helping One night death seemed a better option than life so I took a handful of antidepressants and most of a bottle of whiskey and waited to die. Sometime later my mother heard me vomiting and realized that something bad had happened and called an ambulance.
It was too late to pump my stomach so I was put on an IV. The doctor said if it had been any later I would have died. Shortly afterwards I was then taken to a mental hospital and I stayed there for a couple of weeks.
After this my life started to turn around and I felt so much better and optimistic about the future. It feels so good to talk about this and I want to say If you are contemplating suicide please talk to somebody. I know you think nobody cares but they do just try talking to someone. Life can and does get better if you just stick at it. You are important and you do matter. It feels good to write this down. Thank you for taking the time to read this
