Surviving Hell
Blake Grandon

Happy and Suicidal

It’s been nearly a year since Robin Williams killed himself in his California home. Nearly a year since my news feeds and e-mails were filled with renewed interest in stories from around the world about those struggling with depression and suicide. Nearly a year since my own suicide attempt.

Even now, while I sit in my tiny living room in front of the TV watching a Hannibal marathon, I’m not really sure exactly what I want to say. Or why anyone would care. But that doesn’t matter now — I know I have to get this out, once and for all. Thank you, Blake, for sharing your story as hearing about what others have gone through really does open the doors to others. I considered sharing my story, then decided not to, but your story has encouraged me once again to share it.

My name is Natalie, and I am suicidal.

If you’re interested, please read my story here and share it.
