When I was young, I spent hours sitting on the edge of my bed holding a razor blade above my wrist trying to get the “courage.”
When I think of what I’d have missed…
That was before my son was born (and after), I hadn’t yet meet Pam or our kids… And now, grandkids.
There’s a lot I would have missed.
I survived because of my writing and, in Robin Williams’ case, I imagine his comedy covered a lot of pain.
If you are depressed, I know how you feel and I know that thinking about suicide give you some release in the same way I used to get a strange satisfaction from visualizing myself hanging.
But, before you do something irreversible in the spur of the moment, give this number a call and talk it over with someone.
