For someone who went through anxiety I can’t say this enough. Although I never tried to commit suicide, the thoughts were there. Many people believe that a suicide attempt is a selfish act, because the person just does not think about the people left behind. I can tell you that when a person gets to that point, they don’t do it to hurt their family. They truly believe that there is no point to their existence. This is mental illness, not egotism. The truth is; anxiety and depression is a terrible illness and seems unyielding. I have been close to that edge, and some have lost friends and loved ones. Let’s look out for each other and stop putting mental illness under the rug.
