TW: Suicide

Meow, so today's post is about suicide. The reason why I have put TW is mainly because I am warning you that this may cause distress. This is going to be a very serious blog oist so if you don't read it then I understand. This is going to be a short post but I hope that you read this and maybe learn something?



So, basically for a while I have have had suicidal thoughts and I'm not sure why or what triggered them off to be honest but I have just felt worse than utter shit but I felt like suicide needs to be talked about as suicide has a stigma about it and with all mental health this stigma needs to be removed completely so I felt that the best way to do this is to talk about it...

If you search the definition of this word into google then this will come up. Suicide is the act of intentionally ending your life. If you have had suicidal thoughts then try and talk to someone about it which sounds so cliche but it does actually help if you can talk to someone that you trust.

Suicide happens a lot and happens for many reasons. It's the only way out for some people and we shouldn't just shove it under the carpet so we forget about it. Suicidal thoughts should be treated in the same way. We should be able to talk about it openly with people... I'm going to explain a bit about my own personal experiences and then I would like you to comment down below and hopefully we may be able to help others...

Basically, I have suffered with anxiety and depression for a while and every so often I end up with suicidal thoughts. Lately, things have been a bit hectic and things crashed and left me feeling all sorts of emotions but then the thoughts kicked in and I felt worthless, stupid, shit, dumb, fat, a mess, I deserved nothing etc and this isn't an attention seeking thing but it happens. The best way for me to stop it is via my phone... On my phone, I have a photo folder filled with pictures that make me smile and feel happy and I have some songs that I know will make me feel happy and it helps...

I'm sorry that this post has been a bit different and a little bit all over the place but I hope that you found it interesting and I hope to see you next time!

Meow!

  1. Wow you're so brave to post about this and I commend you for that. It really does need to be talked about more, sometimes just getting stuff off your chest to someone can make you feel a whole load better. I hope posting this blog post has brought you some comfort knowing you've been strong enough to just bloody TALK about it - you go girl! So much respect. LOVE the idea of a happy folder on your phone, little baby steps that I'm sure make so much difference! I used to write reasons to be happy on my door every time I was upset..my entire door was covered for years with little reminders!

    Good on you sista!
