Cowardly?!?! Ok if you don't agree with me on this please this once I'm asking you to keep it to yourself. And no, I'm not in any danger please don't worry 💕 Suicide isn't cowardly or selfish, it isn't done with others in mind (especially not fans you don't even know) it isn't done with anything in mind it is simply a completely final loss of hope and the pain takes over and tells you there is no other way and everyone else is better off without you. You don't think clearly. You can't. Pain is taking the driver seat, physical, mental, excruciating pain and you feel there is no other option. No amount of friends, family, money, success can change that. People say why didn't they reach out... because they can't! They're past the stage where they can think clearly enough to seek help. They feel no one will understand, nothing can take that pain away. It trumps everything, happiness, love, success, money, joy... there is nothing left. Not one little spark of the positive. Their demons have won the battle and have made the decisions for them. So, If you've never felt that way or close to it, you cannot judge it. You can't. #depression#suicide#awareness#ripchesterbennington#ripchriscornell#suicideawareness#korn#brianwelch#thinkbeforeyouspeak#linkinpark#ripchester#itsoknottobeok#depressionisreal#anxiety#nomoretaboos

Love to say was gym bound but just school run 🏃 then going to settle down to write down and share with you what I found out at one of the best talks been to ever hosted by @wellbeingofwomen . This is why if you want to support a charity please check them out . No fancy lunches just brilliant information from the worlds top experts. Been searching for other words but really got to say it how it is. We have to dispel the myths and get informed about the #menopause will effect me and all my friends in the next 5 to 10years. Think how much we all read up and talked about pregnancy . This is just another stage and knowing what happens and how to deal with it is crucial. #wellbeingofwomen#nomoretaboos
Ive posted this picture before, but I feel like today is a milestone for me. I am finally taking control of what I am and what I will do. Its ok to not be ok. Its ok to ask for help. It has been 481 days since the last time I tried to take my life, but the thoughts have plagued me every day for years. Today I broke down after almost a decade of telling myself "Its not that bad" or "I can do this" or just drowning everything with fucking painkillers and went and got help. It was a painless process, everyone was nice and understanding. I didnt feel out of place. I didnt feel broken when I told them I wake up dreading the day. My doctor looked me in the eyes and smiled and told me he had hope for me and my future, and for someone who just diagnosed me with severe chronic depression (and a couple others), he said it genuinely, and that gives me hope, which I really havent had in a long time. I always accepted that I would never die naturally, but hey, I guess I can stick around to see what happens. Whatever comes from this, I know Im better for it, and I cant encourage you enough to seek help if you struggle with anything. Ive dealt with it on my own for a long time and i can tell ya, the shit aint worth it. #suicideawareness#suicideprevention#mentalhealthawareness ...
It's #mentalhealthawareness week and I'm unashamed about sharing the fact that my mental health has been tumultuous since I was a child. I started suffering with depression and anxiety around 7 or 8 (from events I won't mention here), and first considered suicide when I was 10. I have no idea how I even knew HOW to end my life at that age. So for 3 decades I have lived with PTSD, Depression, and sometimes severe Anxiety. And you know what? It hasn't made me weak. It's made me incredibly strong! I'm still here aren't I!! Don't be afraid to talk about your mental health. It doesn't make you "special". It just makes you "human". #ptsd#pnd#mentalhealth#nz#nomoretaboos
Taboo fighting alert 🚨 ⠀ ⠀ I discovered @shethinx by chance but I was instantly wowed and hooked.⠀ ⠀ Oh, how I love a badass female-led company that not only creates something amazing but also fights taboos and gives back (via a 'buy one-fund one' model among others!)⠀ ⠀ Did you know that over 100 million girls miss school *just* because of their periods? ⠀ ⠀ Women get periods - for most of their lives! - they bleed, they hurt - some quite a lot! - and the shushing and shame that surrounds menstruation even in this day and age needs to go.⠀ ⠀ Kudos to the Thinx team 🖤⠀ ⠀ #realmenstruatinghuman#thinx#periodproof#period#women#underwear#nomoretaboos#vscocam#vsco#badass#education#leeds
