With this morning awful events

I heard from the wordpress community a fellow blogger attempted suicide this morning. I have also heard the cops were contacted and got to her on time. As of right now I believe she is still with us, luckily. I don’t know this blogger, but as a person who has suffered from mental illness and suicidal thoughts in the past (I have made an attempts a couple times myself along time ago in my teens) and fight my demons, struggles and illness everyday. She is not alone. She is one of too many that has lost hope. She even has children, which I cannot imagine what she is going through. If I had children I don;t think I could ever take my own life (I can’t even right now or do that to the people in my life) so she must be in a very desperate and dire situation. I did send her my thoughts and support in a comment on her blog post. I found her blog through wordpress gossip etc. I was not going to share her blog here as she is in such a desperate and vulnerable state but it has alreadt been passed around etc and I think if everyone says a little something or to show support in some way I am hoping we can reach her and help her get through this awful time. I want to write more this week about this kind of tough topics and the stigma we still fight of mental illness everyday, but until then. I think maybe we as the wordpress community or anyone who sees this could come up with something special we could do for her. I am currently thinking of something I could do or us as a community could do as a special dedication and tribute to her. I will let you know if I come up with anything. Her blog can be found here

Until then, here is a song I’d like to dedicate to everyone battling mental illness and especially those contemplating suicide. You may not know me as I am an anonymous blogger, but know you are NOT alone.

Author:

I am a 30-year-old female living life on the autism spectrum and still trying to find my place in the world. I have other associated disorders or mental illnesses such as OCD, anxiety (generalized and social) and a history of depression to name a few. I love writing and have been writing different styles for as long as I can remember. Like most people who have a strong passion for writing I started writing stories and wrote in a journal in grade school. I remember specifically purchasing my first diary/journal that had a lock with my cousin when I was around 10 year-of-age. I was very excited to start writing in it as it was the first fanciest and most formal writing tool I owned. I think that was when my writing journey really began as I started to write daily. Some of my main goals for this blog is to write about autism, it's associated disorders and my life in hopes to help others. To spread awareness and educate in hopes to end some of the stigmas society has attached to things mental illness and autism. To meet like minded bloggers or be inspired by other writers. Other than that I will post or share anything that is of interest or pops into my head. As I grow older, the more I understand about myself and experience life I find myself wanting to seek a further diagnoses or a reevaluation. That is part of the reason why I am opening a new blog here and the reason for my new found blog name. So I hope you all will join me on my continued journey and new discoveries. My diagnoses are not all who I am so here are some random facts about myself. Some of my hobbies besides writing include music, The Sims 3, Xbox, Netflix, scrapbooking and the outdoors. I have a very strong passion for music. It is like my drug/medicine/obsession and you may catch me from time to time preaching it like a religion. Apologies in advance I am married to a man who is not on the spectrum, but he is as equally as amazing and I am insanely in love with him. Like my rants about my life and music you will also hear a lot about him. I was born and raised in Canada who recently seeked Permanent Residence in the USA, so I am no longer an illegal alien. Although I am still an 'alien' tbh. I say imo and tbh too much. (imo = in my opinion/tbh = to be honest) They are also probably the only two abbreviations you will catch me using as one of my many pet peeves are people who 'typ like dis' The only thing that probably makes me a stereotypical Canadian is my obsession with hockey. I am a very organized person. However, it is normally with things that don't really matter in life such as my files on my computer that are organized in folders, within folders... I often can be perceived as rude at first until you get to know me. I have a huge imagination. Some of my favorite animals are dogs, cats, monkeys, penguins and elephants. I prefer animals to humans tbh. Basically I am another complexed human being like everyone else trying to find her way through life and I welcome you all to my newly found blog. This description is subject to change at anytime as my blog grows, I add more facts about myself or for whatever reason I feel fit. ~ My Authentic Mind
