World Suicide Prevention Day

This post is based on my experience with suicidal thoughts and depression. I do not claim to be a doctor and know all the answers (even though doctors usually don’t know all the answers anyway) I’m simply sharing tips on what would have helped me and could have helped to prevent suicidal thoughts. I’ve seen my mum be depressed for 20+ years, I know whats helped her and what hasn’t. I’m also reading ‘Reasons To Stay Alive’ by Matt Haig; a brilliant author who like myself doesn’t have all the answers but knows from his own experience what it means to want to die and what it means to want to stay alive. I hope this post can help someone, if it helps ones person then it has served it’s purpose.

For The Morning

Mornings can be the hardest. Painfully fast, my body isn’t at all in sync with time 

I’m craving a neck massage as much as my next cup of caffeine 

Brain overloaded with thoughts from before and vivid dreams previous

What do they mean?

So I google

Or rather Dream moods that shit Continue reading “For The Morning”
