Last friday, I learned that one of my childhood friends had passed away. I was devastated. I was completely out of it all weekend. Yesterday, I was able to hear part of the story. She had committed suicide by overdosing on pills. She was also bulimic. This instantly made me cry, because I knew what she was going through. A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to overcome anorexia. I had thought multiple times of killing myself because it was too hard, I felt like I wasn’t able to do it. But I didn’t, because I had the support from friends and family. This girl didn’t have support needed to overcome this disorder. It makes me extremely sad to see such a kind and sweet person leave this world in such a way.
In conclusion, I’d like to say that my inbox is open to anyone. I am there to listen, help in any way, give you advice, whatever you may need. I feel guilty of not keeping touch with this girl, and it’s been killing me ever since Friday night. I wish things would have been differently, but life’s a bitch sometimes. So to those that are struggling right now: Stay strong, <3
