My Journey So Far..

My Childhood

Growing Up I thought I had an All-American Family. Thankfully, there weren't any major trials or tragedies in my life as a kid, I had a loving family, and everything that I I thought I needed. Unfortunately, (as life would have it) toward the end of middle school and the beginning of high school things stay as simple or carefree as I'd experienced before. 4 of my friends passed away, my grandmother passed away, and I was raped. Unfortunately, I didn't know how to handle any of it. I tried to just keep a smile on my face and pretend like everything was okay but I fell deeper and deeper into depression.

My Suicide Attempt

It was a cold night in January when I tried to take my life. I'd become hopeless. I didn't know what to do anymore. I knew suicide wasn't the answer but I didn't know what the answer was. Overwhelmed by wave after wave of trauma and grief I laid down on a set of train tracks near by parents home and was run over by 33 freight train cars at 55 mph.
