    Mental health crisis in The young and the restless

    The soap opera character Chelsea is going through a mental health crisis. She tried to jump but a friend stopped her. I’m so happy shows are putting mental health scenes in their storylines. Not only just soap operas but movies, songs and books. The soap opera actually had intrusive thoughts and negative thoughts. I usually post that I’m emotionally numb that I don’t feel anything. But after seen this in my soap i cried afterwards. I felt how she was feeling. I tried to take my life. They did have discretion advised before the show. The actors came on afterwards and urge people to call to get help. #MajorDepressiveDisorder #PTSD #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorde #SuicideAwareness

    Suicide Attempt Reflections

    I attempted suicide in 2019. I was undiagnosed and scared. I couldn’t handle the emotional and psychological pain. I just wanted the pain to end (which I know sounds cliche) but it’s true. I felt alone, lost and rejected. Defeated and unloved. I didn’t realize then that it was the undiagnosed and unresolved trauma. It was the abuse I went through that caused the damage. I felt so dirty, different and damaged. I was alone when I attempted and that made it worse. My life had fallen apart by that point. I felt like I had no purpose and served no purpose. I had never felt that lonely and sad in my life. The low scared me. I ended up in the hospital then the psych ward. I was misdiagnosed with Depression. I was correctly diagnosed later on. Receiving a PTSD diagnosis has helped so much. Despite all that, I have found the love of my life. I have a purpose and I serve a purpose. I am getting the help I need. So to anyone contemplating suicide like I did, please stay. Your life matters. You are not alone. People love you. Stay strong friends. ❤️
