My good friend Michael Corbin recently shared this story of near suicide with me, and I’d like to share it with you.

(If Michael’s name sounds familiar, it is; I’ve talked about him a lot here at Celebrity Psychings, as he’s the mastermind behind the nonprofit organization everyminute.org and currently working with “Touchdown Tommy” Edwards and his The Heart of Virginia Foundation.)

The idea behind sharing such a story is that others who are contemplating suicide might read the story (or, hear it, depending on the venue) and be touched in some positive way. The Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE) program even dedicates a section of its website to sharing stories about suicide.

Please note that, for some, stories of suicidal thoughts, plans, or actual attempts act as suicide triggers. Please consider such a possibility before clicking the link.
