Depression Kills…Please Make This Viral


 

This is so hard to watch, many will turn it off immediately and think, how negative!  Consider it more negative if we continue to dismiss that suicide increases by leaps and bounds everyday.  Why is that when there are so many new pills out.  Shouldn’t these depressed people get over it by now.  Geez, aren’t we tired of their attention seeking Debbie Downer attitude.

And that my friend is the reason that that approximately 96 people take their own lives everyday.  This is especially from those who have suffered from depression for decades, like myself.  47 years of reaching out, takes its toll on those who have to listen, I know this. So the depressed, seeing people pull away from them, find themselves isolated and instead keep their dark thoughts to themselves. They have burdened every friend, family member and wow…they see they don’t feel better, in fact because of the isolation and loneliness… it is actually worse.

Medications are not the solution, trust me, they do not work for most of us. If one talks to those who survived depression they all answer the same thing. The medication doesn’t work but more so, there are so many loss of connection.

The stigma against people with any type of disease that is in our heads is making it so people stop reaching out. If you are like me and have suffered all your life, people get tired of hearing about it. Many times you hear, if you really wanted to do it, you would have done it. You are seen as an attention seeker and get to the point where you just stop reaching out and eventually you become so isolated that you begin the believe the lies your brain is telling you.

At the end of the video is a hotline if you or somebody you love suffers…please call. Suicide is not the solution and believe it or not there are people out there that care. Don’t let peoples ignorance or cruelty push you. Reach out…just never stop trying….

SUICIDE IS PREVENTABLE!

Special acknowledgement to Spoken Poet, Joyner Lucas in “I’m Sorry”. I never heard of him and not sure how I came across this, but wow! I was captivated. It is about time we have a person in the industry that isn’t just about Blow me ho! or Shake dat azz and such.  His music has a real message that we cannot continue to run from because it makes us uncomfortable.
