That Time At 15 When I Attempted Suicide.
When I tried to top myself at 15, I just could not see out of the dark cloud that had descended over me. Nothing could drag me out of the funk and I could see just no tomorrow. I also felt totally alone and that no-one could understand how I felt. The new Zealand stance of not reporting on suicide nor it being able to discussed has been a miserable failure. We need open dialogue. Our young people need to know they are not alone and that they can discuss how they actually feel without being thrown on happy pills or their emotions being minimized. BUT THE LACK OF ANY DIALOGUE HAS FAILED OUR COUNTRY. Openness to me, seems the only way to go.
