My name is Alyssa, and this is my story

I am 26 and I survived Suicide


Hello my name is Alyssa and I want to share with my story with everyone. I am a self harmer, I have contemplated suicide and even had a plan. I have been saved multiple times. I started cutting when I was 12 and on and off ever since I have cut. April of last year I fell really depressed and down. I was having issues in my marriage and felt very alone. I wrote my Suicide note, had my plan and had a knife picked out to take my life with. I didn’t want to die though; I wanted to live. So I reached out to my godmother who talked to me and stayed on the phone with me until help came. I have since been put on the right medicine and take it daily. I survived
I also want to share another
story with you. I lost my grandfather in October of 2017. It was a Sunday and I was eating dinner with my family when I got the call from my mom. She was crying and pleading for me to call my sister do I did a 3 way call. It was then that my mother proceeded to me my sister and I that my grandfather shot his self and that he was dead, and needed a way to Georgia. The next morning all three of us departed to Georgia leaving behind our kids and spouses. We were hoping it was a dream, we were hoping it wasn’t real. It wasn’t until we walked into my grandmothers house that we realized it was. He was gone. He left us. We hugged our grandmother and cried. We cremated my grandfather and he is urns for the kids and grand kids. We all hold him near and dear to our hearts. Without him our whole family is lost. We love and miss you grandpa rest in heaven.
