Blame mental illness


#1

I read what Anna Shinoda had wrote on national meme day and it was good. That’s what I’ve been trying to tell people in my family. That it wasn’t his fault, it was depression or it was a relapse. I think everyone should go out and read what she wrote: https://annashinoda.wordpress.com/2017/08/26/getting-better/

And also… I made some changes to his wiki page…

Hope it would be helpful to many depressed/sad people… :pensive:


#4

Yep it is…
I just read that anna’s article… It was really very nice!


#5

How petty this world is, someone went back on their and changed it. As if they know anything about anything.


#6

That’s why they say Wikipedia cannot be trusted.

That is so true! I’ve been on both sides. I am a survivor (2) of suicide :pensive: and worst of all I lost my brother to suicide. And from first hand I can promise you when it gets to that point it is no longer you in the driver seat. Whether depression and/or addiction plays the role. These things take alot out of you. Fighting this battle everyday, fighting the urge to numb yourself of the pain your own mind inflicts on you daily. Trying to silence those voices constantly telling you lies, all while focusing your energy on the things that you love . I promise u it takes almost everything you have to keep that smile up. For the millions of us struggling with addiction and mental illness it’s a constant battle. These illnesses will hit you hard at any moment of weakness and sadly sometimes they do win. Still even now I have no idea why I survived twice and yet my brother and Chester did not.

Because you’re strong, you’re a soldier! Chester made music and let this all into it so we could live and #makeHimProud
Be strong!
