I had 16 years without a suicide attempt and used many interventions in that time to lead as normal a life a I possibly could. Life was good for me, even though I deal with manic depression daily. Last Monday week I took an overdose with the intent of dying and was only released from hospital last night, mentally well but drained physically.
I write this short piece to warn you that it can happen anytime, it can sneak up unawares on you and disable you quickly.I am very grateful that I cried for help and was answered, some don’t get that chance. Look after yourself, remember you are not alone but may need supports. I am using those supports .
