The day I killed myself.

It was a Sunday night and I said goodbye to my coaches and teammates realizing it was the last time I’d see them, and them not realizing I was saying goodbye and not goodnight. I got home, took a shower, and said goodnight to my parents, little brother and sister, and went to bed, or so they thought.

I waited until the house was dead silent and everyone was sound asleep. I went into the medicine cabinet, grabbed every pill bottle I could see, went back to my room and popped them all into my mouth. 105 pills later I started seizing and foaming at the mouth. It was happening, it happened. I was dead.

My mom and dad found me the next morning, screaming for Jesus because they couldn’t believe their baby was gone. I ruined my family from that point on all because I was selfish enough to kill myself. My 5 year old sister didn’t understand why her sissy wasn’t coming home ever again. My 14 year old brother thought it was his fault and wanted to know why his best friend didn’t talk to him about her struggles. My parents blamed themselves for not loving me enough, when in fact they did. My dad couldn’t get through one sermon without breaking down in the pulpit. My mom couldn’t get out of bed anymore, she wasn’t the vibrant mother she once was while her “stinker winker” still alive. That’s what she called me and my sister.

All my friends who I thought never cared about me, attended my funeral, broken. I let my teammates down. They went to every competition with a new fill in, being reminded that they never saw it coming. My best friend who I thought abandoned me, and didn’t love me anymore, tried to kill her self because she thought she could have done more.

Now that I was gone, I never got the chance to meet my idol, my role model, my person, Kerry Washington. She would have no idea that I even existed because I decided to take my own life, of course that isn’t her loss it’s mine. My internet friends whom I met trough scandal wouldn’t see me live tweeting on Thursday’s anymore, screaming through my phone as I tweet about olitz. They would no longer see that anymore. My dog would no longer see me come through the front door running towards him ready to give him all the kisses and hugs in the world. My grandparents would soon die of heartache because they could no longer live with the fact that their Tay Tay was never be coming back.

Everyone in my life who I thought never loved me, or cared about me, who I thought wouldn’t have cared whether I lived or died, actually did. They cared this whole time. You see, if it wasn’t for my long time friend depression, I wouldn’t had been introduced into my new friend suicide. Because of Depression, I will never see my siblings grow up, I won’t see my parents get along for once, I won’t see my best friends ever again, I won’t ever meet Kerry. Because of Depression, I am no longer here. If I would have had that one spec of encouragement and love from those around me maybe I’d still be here, and maybe I wouldn’t be six feet under in a marble box. Maybe I’d be the lawyer I was in school to become, thriving in D.C. raising my beautiful children with the love of my life, but I’m not. I’m gone. All of this happened because I killed myself… So please don’t think suicide is the answer because it isn’t. It doesn’t end the pain, it just passes it down to everyone that loves you. You are so loved and you’re not alone.

    4. I too suffer depression and have 4 kids I can’t imagine their lives without me. I don’t want to kill myself but it’s in the back of my mind a lot. I have seen my family dr for years concerning it. She said having a mental illness is no different than a physical illness. If you have high blood pressure you take medicine to control it. My body doesn’t make the chemicals it needs to keep depression away. I take Prozac,it helps a lot. I can tell when I’m not on it. The sadness comes back… please see a dr! You may have to try several prescriptions to find just the right one for you. Please do it for yourself and your kids!!

    9. That’s where faith comes in. Jesus is the only one who cares or understands and can change things. We go to anyone and anything else. But at the end of the day trust Him. He promises never to leave you. He promises He understands. He promises if we die to ourselves and live for Him it is peace and true life. It’s not easy because you’ll be persecuted. Satan won’t stop after you but Christ stops Him. It sounds trite but believe me—go to Christ and put a bubble around you of godly friends. You will get through it.

My best friend we were like sisters i was the best mom that anyone could ask for she praised dance song in the choir cheerlead and much more. She would tell u the best book to read is the bible the best friens to have is jesus her name was Iyanna Mo’nea Beard. Always remember if nothing else God won’t ever leave you or forsake you just look to hills for which cometh your help. Call on him when there is nothing or no one else he knows and see all. Also remember your kids didnt ask to be here and it will be very selfish if you left them here alone this world is cruel enough just amagine life without you. You can’t say you will see them again because once you take your own life there is no way but down. So please keep that in mind and id ever u need someone to talk to i am a call away. (727)623-8627.

    20. Keisha, the one thing that you have said that made me send you a reply is the fact that you have 4 kids. Now your tell everyone in your post that “No one really understand”. Well Keisha, I’m in my 40’s and I do understand. I’ve been where you are. Do you believe in a higher power? If not, no worries, because your kids has unconditional love for their mom, and if you leave, who would care for them? When I was going through my moments, I had no kids on my own, and still don’t but had a niece, and nephews looking towards me. The kids are innocent and didn’t ask to be here. They are looking for you to be their light and guide. Don’t ruining that for them. They need you more than even dad. Think about this, and I’m going to tell you my story from being young to just put this in your life and I hope that you feel me, well I’m trying. My mom and dad was spiting up. I have 3 brothers and a sister. They was sitting at the table one afternoon after school, I’ll never forget it, like it happen yesterday. They had tears in their eyes. My dad asked us, and he knew that we are coo-co crazy about him even to this day who would we wanted to live with? All 5 of us wanted to go with my mom, and I’m very close with my dad, the only other man that I love other than my brothers and husband. He understood because the kids learn from their mom. So with that being said, the kids need YOU! I’m not leaving nothing else but this message and hope that you read this. I’m so sick and tired of the others with nothing positive to say. You are special and don’t let nothing put you down, and if the kids father is not acting right, the saying goes when you miss one bus, it’s another one coming and most times on schedule. Stay strong, because kids don’t stay little forever

    2. Hi Hilda!
      You are a beautiful person in and put. You are loved too. God has you here because to help others that suffer just like you. Trust, pray and read your Bible. God is with you all the time. 19 years ago I was torn apart. 2 ladies sent in my life showed and told me how God loves me through His word. I use that and my life that I went through as a testimony to help others with their crisis that they are going through. That’s what is wrong ppl look for love through man. We need to look for love through God. He will save us from all things not man. Look for Hos approval not man. Man will let you down. God will not. Even if you don’t think He is there He is. There will be times that He won’t answer right away because He wants to see if you will Trust and obey Him. Also it may not be the timing to give you what you want Him to do. O will pray for you and what you are struggling with. God bless you beautiful person. God loves you!

Let her begin to start feeling the love that you have for her and in those moments when the enemy wants to tell her lies please wrap your arms around so that she can feel your presence and you that you are only a prayer away.

You have to fight through it and try ro make the best of everyday. I have a wife amd child that would be absolutely crushed if i wasnt here. I would never do that ro them. Ive had driw ds and family members commit suicide amd ive lost respect for them all. Its the single most selfish thing anyone can do.

    4. As I agree with suicide being selfish, people with a MENTAL issue can’t always see what is considered ‘morally’ wrong. You can’t limit mental illness to old people. I lost my brother to severe depression right before he was turning 35 and you’re very wrong about teenagers having nothing to worry about. You’re judging an entire generation without talking to people. I come from Detroit and many teenagers I know are homeless or barely making enough money to buy themselves dinner. Truthfully you don’t know whats going on in anyone’s life let alone their mind. As selfless as my brother was, he had over 300 people come to his funeral and he would have had more if people if they weren’t out of state. You have no idea how much trauma a person has gone through and just because you lack feelings to whatever happened to you in your life doesn’t mean other people have to be the same. I get it, a lot of people are more sensitive than they need to be, and I get people will do terrible shit and really… Some will say they have depression when they’re just having a bad day, but for the rest of us suffering constantly.. You just don’t understand what some people have been through. Have an open mind because the most ignorant people regardless of age are the ones who live in a close minded world.

He was a Methodist minister loved the Lord did many good and loving carrying things in his life BUT he felt the more you do for people they will turn around and kick you in the teeth. He quit the Ministry and this added to his termoral and of course ours as well. He knew we had a capable loving Mother and loving supportive friends and family but misjudged his worth due to his depression .

Im depressed allot because of my brother whom was like a son to me passed away almost 3 years ago and then my neice baby also passed away last month. Majority of my dad’s family either dont like me or hate me. Ive grown up allk my life in silence and being the blk sheep of the family. I agree that i hate my self and life sometimes and yes ive tried committing suicide a couple times and ended up in rehab abd ect…. ive always said that i would never try that again EVER! But sometimes, i feel the urge to take myself off of the face of this earth for good. Next time you think about treating someone wrong, hurting someone, bully someone, or just abandoned them…. think about if they were your child, sister/brother, aunt, uncle, spouse, or friend. Would you be ok loosing them for ever? Pay really close attention to their mood, lifestyle, or concerns. You might be able to get them help, before its to late.

  10. I suffer from depression,anxiety and I’m bipolar! A great situation not! I’ve tried to kill myself 3 times with razor blades and knives. I felt like everyone would be better without me that I was a burden. It’s mental illness a disease. I’ve been told by my husband to get over it! Not very encouraging. One day about 6 yrs ago I took myself to the hospital and told them I didn’t want to be here anymore. They helped me and the doctors changed my medications AGAIN! This sickness requires medication not mind over matter like I’ve been told before. A couple of months ago after we lost our home I thought about killing myself again except this time I had a gun. But I managed to hold on and think about my children and grandchildren and that stopped me. It kept me holding on. I still was unable to get out of bed or take a shower because I didn’t care at that point but o was still here. It’s a daily struggle to get out of bed and go to work and put a happy face on and act like everything is fine. But the weekends I hit the bed again until Monday! I have a shrink but I lie because I don’t want to be committed again. But it’s hard and it’s a daily struggle. Since I’m bipolar depressive my medications don’t always work. This article was wonderful it helped me realize that I’m not alone in my feelings about being a burden to others and not wanting to go on. But I force myself too because of the kids. Suicide is a horrible reality not selfish because when you are in so much pain it seems like the only option you have. So I understand what a lot of you are feeling I’ve been there and it’s a struggle! Not being selfish!!! Don’t put people down! We are already down! The selfish remarks just hurt us not help us! I have friends thank god who check on me and love me and they try to understand! Which is great and has helped me in times of crisis. I take my meds faithfully and sometimes they help! Try finding a friend or friends who love you and understand the struggle we go through I find that is what has kept me here on Earth.

By keeping your feeling to yourself are feeling so along and miss understood. Depression is a illness but it can be controlled. By taking your Meds getting help from a professional. But most of all staying prayed up. Just think of something you thought was so unbearable .But the lord got you though it. You’re blessed just take one hour or second at a time. I ask God to take this feeling away from me. And make sure you’re surround yourself with positive individual and family members. Express fears to someone. .There local churches with pray lines. I find that sometime it’s easier to express how you feel to a neutral individual . Know that God is always a pray away.

  11. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I have had an awful time with depression. I have struggled for years dealing with it. Your words are real. I hope you have found some peace in this crazy world. Your words are so helpful. I hope to never get to that point even though I think about it all the time

    1. Terrible comment it’s not about others it’s about the person who is controlled by an ill mind. What would YOU tell a diabetic or kidney failure patient?????
      Please watch your tongue. Mentally depressed are in enough guil, pain, and hundreds of other feelings. They are surviving min by min. Be careful of your
      Judgement. There’s enough pain associated with this. No more needed!!!!!

  13. Depression is very serious especially when you have had it since you were young. Nothing seems right. You really have no friends or family or even the ones that says they love you. They are not, don’t believe that they turn and stab your back. No. One is trust worthy. I have so much my head feels like a you. Maybe some day it will get better. This story about this young lady I pictured myself several times in doing that. I look up and ask my angels to come and get me as well. My true family lies up in heaven. So depression is very much a sickness that maybe someday will be cured

  14. Depression,stress,fear are related. All of these factors weren’t given by our creator, God. He gave us life to enjoy it more abundantly. He sent his son to a deviled world so that we could live this life in this world in love with this gift of life and knowing our creator has a plan for our lives. Everything you experience in this life may not always be like you want or even dreamed,but instead of focusing on things that you feel are the worst things happening to you, hold on, turn that into a positive. They just might be the best thing for your good to come about. God is working in your behalf as you’re going through. Be still trust and believe that he’ll work it out. He promised he’ld never leave you. If you haven’t called on God. Call on him Now. He wants a relationship with you. There is a light at the end of every tunnel and all your fears. God bless you. He loves you.

  15. Any advice please? My son has told me of his plans to kill himself. he’s 24. I have tried everything from reasoning, pleading to arguing. The mental health service in the UK sucks. He has tried previously and all they did was talk to him in the A&E dept. then sent us on our way. He was prescribed pills, that did nothing but help him sleep at night. He wont go back to the GP. I have asked him to talk to the Samaritans but he refuses saying his mind is made up. I know the Police wont care, because I saved a teenager from jumping off a bridge a few years ago, he was known to them for petty crime. When I reported it they said as clear as day that I should of let him jump. I am at my wits end.

I tell My 4 Children that to remember they r Loved and if bothered by anyone to lmk or brush it off as We live on a Speck of Dust on World Map of an area n Driving just 15 Miles ANY Direction puts one in an area of 1000s of New People to be present n involved with etc. A NEW Community a NEW Slate! The World is So BIG!!! Much Adventure n Beauty in Landscapes n Cultures to Experience n Embrace! We should be almost Sad really to think of how SHORT Life really is so Make the MOST of Each Day!

  20. I have been struggling with depression and anxiety and bipolar since 2000 when my brother died in a hospital mistake!!! After my brother died my dad kinda treated me different and one day he got so mad at me cause I asked him if he was OK and he said clear as day “your better off dead than alive they took the wrong child” so I over dosed on my ADHD meds and traced it with tylonal and thank god I threw must of them back up cause that is the reason why I’m still here!!! From that day forward me and my dad were very close and I could always count on him for anything, but sadly in 2005 he died waiting on a liver transplant, and I hit rock bottom again, I ended up in the hospital and came out a changed person for the good!!! Now I’m 36 and I have three beautiful kids that keep me going, cause with out them being here I wouldn’t be here!!!

  21. Sometimes things are just not that simple. I’ve suffered with depression for many years. I’ve been dealt a very crappy hand, including but not limited to my daughter being murdered and then my mother dying 3 weeks later. I know people love and care for me. I know my friends are here for me. No I do not want to die today…but when my brother told me two days ago that he was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer, I wanted to check out. I think about dying everyday and I have to find my own reasons to stay. Telling people who suffer from this how selfish they are isn’t helping…they don’t want to hear that. They have real demons they are fighting, trust me I know. We already know those left behind will be hurt, but sometimes the agony of staying here hurts even more. Believe me, I am not in anyway way encouraging suicide, I’m just saying stop trying to beat sense into sick people, it doesn’t help. A lot of the times I’ve wanted to go, I’ve honestly felt that my family would have been better off than to see me angry and crying constantly. Depression and mental illness is very real and instead of posting these stories where you think a dead persons thoughts maybe try coming up with more help for those who are suffering. I’m lucky, I’m also in the medical field, I know when and where to go for help. I know when the burden is to heavy for me to carry. Some people I know do not. I try to talk to them. I tell them what I know and give names. I’ve guided at least one with PTSD and that person, talks to a therapist, is now medicated and stable. But again shaming people will only drive them into darkness when they have their demons swirling in their heads and hurtful words thrown at them outside their heads. Keep that in mind.

  23. My brother committed suicide 4 years ago. He left behind a wife, two beautiful children, myself, my mom and ton of other family and friends who loved him so much and miss him every single day!!! I can honestly say I never saw this coming! Reading and hearing about people committing suicide or wanting to makes me so unimginably sad for not only them, but he loved ones they may leave behind someday if they decide to go through with it. Suicide definitely does not end internal struggle with depression!! It’s passed on and lived every day by the people left behind! I wish I could’ve gotten my brother to see that…not sure if it was wouldve made a difference, but I wish!!

  24. I too suffer form depression and bipolar and it is very hard to deal with especially alone. I always feel like I have nobody to talk to or to just listen to me as I just let go of whatever is hurting me or bothering me. My depression is very strong and I fight hard to control it everyday but it’s beyond hard. I have suicidal thoughts but I haven’t acted on them (yet) and I say that because it gets very tempting at times but I always think about what and who I’m leaving behind if I do that to myself. I pray everyday that the lord heals me inside and out. Depression is a very hard struggle and deadly battle to face alone.

  25. I struggle too. I too have thought of suicide many times. Sometimes I just don’t care about anything anymore. Other days I manage to work, take care of my kids when they are with me every other week and clean my house many times it’s a struggle to wash, shave, eat. I’ve tried all anti depressants and they made me suicidal. Every day brings on a new challenge. The depression has brought on physical pain that’s aggravated by stress. I cope by keeping my “Facebook Face” on. Perfect family. Perfect life. Perfect home. It’s exhausting. My fave activity? Staring at the ceiling for hours at a time. Sometimes when I feel well I go for a walk or talk on the phone but I have learned not to mention my inner demons. Whenever I try to talk about what bothers me, people scatter. They say “just get over it, you have a roof over your head, a good boyfriend, lovely kids, no Debts, blah blah blah”. Well, I still feel like crap and I still don’t want to live much of the time. Hopefully things improve. ISB love to be “normal” again.

  26. Hello everybody, I too suffer from bipolar depression and it’s a real sickness that requires medical attention. I was recently diagnosed almost 2 months ago. Their age actually people that cares so before it goes to far in priced please seek help. I once though of suicide a few times, even with my kids in the car. But somebody heard my cry and the doctors contacted me and immediately placed me on meds. It’s getting better but it’s still a challenge from day to day. Just don’t give up.
