September is National Suicide Prevention Month. Albeit, we should all do all we can to help people we are concerned about throughout the year. Every day. Never stop. Never give up.
This one hits home for me. Next month on my birthday October 15th it will be the 30th anniversary of my dad committing suicide. He obviously chose my birthday so I would always remember it. As if I wouldn’t remember any other date he would have done it on!
I understand the genetics of Depression and, as expected, I couldn’t avoid the power of the genes. It’s about 16 years now that the daily fight has gone on. At least it is still going on, eh:)
If you or anyone you know suffer from Depression, or any other Mental Illness, (say it out loud over and over until you get used to saying it….just like saying cancer or diabetes….it’s just a disease like any other….it is not something to be ignored and swept under the rug as we have done forever), please call 1-800-273-8255, seek professional help, and keep talking.
You, or the person you know, are here to make a difference in the life of one or more people. You need to stay here. You will make a difference!
Godspeed to all.
As a reminder, please go to YouTube and listen to Morgan Wade’s The Night. I listen to it most every day. Great lyrics.
