Hey, you. You clicked on this link for a reason. Listen, I know how you feel. I’ve been there. I know the feelings of isolation, loneliness, desperation, emptiness, and all-consuming, soul-crushing hopelessness. I know it seems like it will never end. I know that suicide can seem like the only rational choice (it’s not). Help is there, waiting for you, but you have to take the first step. I know you’re so tired and achy you can barely get out of bed…or maybe you can’t get out of bed – I’ve been there too. That’s ok. You can call or click the links below and start looking for help. If you’re a veteran, like me, there are resources specifically for your unique situation. If you’re a sexual assault survivor, there are resources for you too. Whoever you are, and whatever your problems, nothing is insurmountable. Below are some links to organizations you can call, text, or chat with for help. So please, take a look at these and don’t be afraid of asking for help. You can do it.
If you’re in crisis and thinking of hurting yourself, please stop whatever you are doing and just call 911 or your local emergency services!
