What’s Your Story?

Well, many of you have read my story, and several have left bits and pieces of your story on the “What’s Your Story” page. Now that I’ve been at this blogging business for a couple months, I’m learning some things from fellow bloggers and building up the courage to try out some of those new things!

Ever since I started this blog I knew I wanted to get others involved and hear the stories of those who have also traveled down this, at times, heart wrenching path of mental/emotional wellness. I want to hear all your stories! Whether you have struggled with mental illness yourself, contemplated or attempted suicide, are a survivor of suicide, have had to deal with grief, or if you have supported someone else as they struggle with grief or mental illness.

There are so many facets to grief and mental health. Everyone’s story is unique. And yet we all share a little tiny part that is exactly the same, don’t we? Nothing can bring us quite the same kind of comfort and encouragement as hearing the supportive words of someone who is also slogging their way down this muddy road with us.

Do you have a story to tell? Do you think your story can be a source of inspiration and support to others who may be living in a similar story right now?

Wednesdays will be guest interview day. If you would like to participate, please leave a comment, or email me at lange(dot)carrie@gmail(dot)com. Thank you!

Help is available 24/7 at the ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  1. Hey! Awesome idea. I’d love to participate! I’ve actually written a novel about my experience with mental illness including panic attacks, anxiety, depression and yes…thoughts of suicide. I love your site! I’m a follower now. 🙂

  2. I’ve been really depressed and suicidal this past week, after my boyfriend committed suicide and my girlffriend broke up with me. Today, after she called me, I thought of taking a walk in the dark and standing in front of a big truck, one that doesn’t break quickly enough to avoid hitting me, I don’t know why, but something made me visit this site in particular. I read your story and read how to help myself, and I thank you, so much. I’m still depressed, but now I know I’m not alone. I’ve decided I’m not taking that walk down the road now. Thank you.

Have something to say? Say it! But please be polite. ;-)
