Anonymous asked: Wait did you really try to commit suicide? How old were you and what did you do? Wow you are a really interested and surprising person, I'm so glad I found your blog. Much love.
DB answered: Yes, I was 21 and it was an awful, dark, really scary, hopeless feeling time in my life. I was severely depressed and heartbroken. I don’t want to talk about it extensively but I do want to say that it’s not at all a glamorous situation. It’s unbelievable how romanticized suicide is but most people cannot even fathom the level of pain it takes to get there. And that’s something that hangs around me, there’s always a threat that things could get that bad again one day and I have moments where I feel that bad every so often. It puts a lot into perspective for me and makes me more thankful to be here but it still rattles me on a daily basis to think of if I would have been successful. It’s terrifying honestly. So maybe it is “interesting” but really not in a good way, it’s nothing I would wish on anyone else in the world.
