Hi, my name is Sarah and I'm depressed.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to speak with Coffee Over Suicide host, Chris Parker Howard, to share my my story. It was hard and painful and terrifying and sharing it with you now is hard and painful and terrifying.
Mental health has a lot of stigma behind it, suicide even more so, and I'm not going to let the shame and guilt I feel run me anymore.
This is my story, I own it and in order to continue moving forward I'm sharing it with you.
Thank you, Chris, for giving me this platform and for having such a raw and real conversation with me. I know I am not the only one that experiences these emotions, far from it, and I hope my story will empower others to feel their stories as well. If you are unsure of who to share it with or don't feel you have anyone to share it with, it would be my pleasure to listen.
