Howdy folks. We’re taking a literary break today to give a shameless plug…

You’ll be able to do this as well, potentially circumventing the need to pay for the service.

Out of the Darkness

MF6761As you know, I tried to take my life a little over a week ago. This attempt was a result of poor coping mechanisms or skills to better understand my more prominent mental illness: Major Depressive Disorder. I’ve written enough about that event, but I do want to introduce and invite you all to help support a different event hosted by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention: Out of the Darkness.

2666.The AFSP has been holding this event to help fund its non for profit efforts in the fight against suicide and to better inform about this horrible activity. Suicide can not only affect the individuals attempting, but more so the people joined with that individual’s life. I witnessed firsthand, how attempting suicide affected my family and friends, heck even strangers. Fortunately, I failed at my attempt. That being said, there are a number of ways you may contribute to the cause: Financially or Physically.

If you choose the financial route, more than 82 cents of every dollar you raise can be used to:

  • Educate the public about mental disorders and suicide prevention
  • Fund scientific research
  • Promote policies and legislation that impact suicide and prevention
  • Provide programs and resources for survivors of suicide loss and people at risk, and involve them in the work of the Foundation
  • Offer educational programs for professionals

If you decide you’d like to get out and represent your commitment through the walking event, Out of the Darkness, check out the information here and below.

If I’m feeling well enough, I plan to join these guys on the 27th to walk with Team Spacebarbies. I’m still a little sensitive and anxious around large crowds, but it gets better each day. I’m also still under close observation for relapse, but I feel I have put my trigger for my attempt behind me and look forward to a healthy lifestyle, learning better skills to keep me from ever reaching that point of depression, but also promoting and supporting causes that specialize in Behavioral Health. FYI, the National Alliance of Mental Illness is another great resource for those seeking more information.
