I had all these signs and more for many months, but I didn’t want help and thought I could keep fighting my suicidal ideations. I was very wrong.
According to statistics, in the United States, someone dies by suicide every 13 minutes, and each death intimately affects at least six others, according to the American Association of Suicidology. Between 1989 and 2013, there were 825,832 suicides, leaving an estimated 4.95 million survivors behind, the AAS says.
If you are having suicidal thoughts, please get help right away and do not make the same mistakes I did. Thank you.
