My 1983 suicide attempts

In the fall of 1983-as an 18 year old senior in Houston, Texas-and while suffering from biochemically-based genetically inherited depression-AND while suffering from CIRCUMSTANTIAL depression-I tried several times to commit suicide via the use of pillow cases and slashing my left wrist with a sharp knife. Thankfully-I was not successful. In late 1983/early 1984-I was placed on a medicinal anti-depressant from a medical doctor-while SIMULTANEOUSLY receiving "talk" therapy from a licensed clinical psychologist. As a result-I gradually recovered; became happy and productive; and finished my Senior year of high school-graduating on Friday morning, July 20'th, 1984 with a high school diploma.

Curious: Where you intent on killing yourself or crying for attention?
[@126988,triviaenthusiast] People who haven’t been in that situation, believe that’s killing yourself is sooooo easy.
It’s not.

[@207746,CereBellum] I believe you but generally even though I've never tried to take my own life, I can't believe people think it's easy to kill oneself. I think that view stems from judgement rather than empathy because if they were empathic towards the suicide victim, they'd know that killing yourself is much easier said than done.

I mean to know the pain that would happen if the suicide goes wrong or the pain of killing yourself generally, that's kind of like stabbing yourself repeatedly, I don't get why people think that would be an easy thing to do. You already have the anticipation of the pain that death is going to cause.

Ug people.

This must mean that something wanted you to live, I'm not talking about God but something said "hey get a hint it's not your time yet." And so fate gave you a hint lol 😂
