If you are in CRISIS…

Sometimes the situations we’re facing in our lives and the pain we’re in seem too overwhelming to tolerate, and the option of hurting ourselves or even dying may seem like a solution.

It. Is. NOT.

Hurting or killing yourself is NEVER the solution. If you are having these thoughts right now and are planning on acting on them, you need to call 9-1-1 or go to your nearest emergency room NOW!

If you are in crisis and need to talk to someone about what’s happening, here are some of very useful numbers and websites:

The national suicide hotline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255) National Suicide Prevention Lifeline- 24/7

For sexual assault survivors: 1-800-656-HOPE (4673) Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network Online Hotline

For self-harm crises: 1-800-DONT-CUT (366-8288) S.A.F.E. Alternatives (Self Abuse Finally Ends)

For eating disorder crises: 1-630-577-1330 open M-F 9am-5pm CST

For LGBT-community crises: 1-866-488-7386 The Trevor Project Lifeline and Trevor Chat

I am simply a writer, and this is a place to share your story. However, I am not a therapist and if you are in crisis you need to seek help immediately! Your life is important. Please do everything you can to save it.
