It's Not OK, but It Will Be
How I Survived Suicidal Depression & You Can Too
"I was 15 when I decided I did not want to live anymore."
As I lay on my back staring into the darkness of my bedroom ceiling, I knew it was time for tears. What felt like minutes turned into hours. Hours of listening to the sad song playlist I had created over my four months of depression. Hours of silent cries that had been held inside all day until I could find myself alone at night to scream in to the blackness.
Could I jump off the second-story balcony outside my bedroom? Could I drown myself in the bathtub? Undecided. But the eagerness was there. Not the eagerness to be dead. The eagerness to erase the pain...
HELLO, my name is Emma.
This is my story of depression and suicide, and how I overcame it. You can too."
