i had not asked to be rescued, true, but that did not mean i didn't need saving.


Difference between:

suicide survivor
(bereaved, survived the death of a loved one)

&

cancer survivor
(bereaved, survived the death of a loved one)

See how ridiculous it is to be a cancer survivor as a parent, siblings, friend or colleague? The experience of cancer isn't yours to own. Why do we view the injured party differently? Why is the death of a loved one by suicide considered something you survive and death by illness considered noble, honourable and worthy? If you are pro-choice and think euthanasia should be legalised but condemn suicide...then I don't want to hear from you.
