It was art imitates life with my then Med Manager (who was always pressing me about my  thoughts of suicide/suicidal ideation.)

Suicide Ideation Happens
Before I got help in 2003 and even for many years after, I dealt with the overwhelming desire to die – it was not just the lack of self-esteem, self-loathing and shame and total hate I had for myself – because times were good – in fact: when times were great and my life was good…my mind kept telling me to die. I dealt with suicidal ideation for over 30 years off and on. I am HAPPY! I’m a complete failure at suicide.

Whether or not suicide is more common during the Christmas holiday is Fact or Myth…one thing WE
ALL MUST NOT LOSE FOCUS ON the FACTS
– In the U.S, the CDC reports suicide mortality every 12.9
minutes. If you need to talk to someone now, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) and you’ll be connected with a trained counselor. They can also connect you to
mental health services in your area. The line is available 24/7 and is for people in crisis and
those who support people in crisis.

What is One Sure Thing Celebrating The Holidays Will Do?
The holiday(s) stress(es) can be overwhelming, depressing and out right lonely…Buying gifts, dealing with long lines, and some not-so-joyful souls can really get you down.  Having to be with family or not having family to be with, for others, can be a trigger.
