Behind the Scenes at M.E. Support
Two years ago, I wrote a blog post about the taboo nobody wants to talk about - Suicide. I continue to receive weekly messages from distraught M.E. sufferers. Sadly, I've also lost several acquaintances through suicide in recent months. Some deaths have made the news, which understandably upset and angered people, but it's important to have their stories heard.
It has been over twenty years since I self-harmed and attempted suicide. As uncomfortable as it is to admit, the impact M.E. has on my life means that I continue to struggle with negative thoughts. I have republished my post to raise awareness and hopefully help those in need. Please keep talking to each other and don't forget to ask, "Are you okay?"
