This is a special thing on my blog where I take it there. I talk about something beyond personal with ya’ll. Now I also do this on my patreon account www.patreon.com/amandanicole12
But I’ll do it here as well. So last night I recorded a podcast episode called The Stigma Part 2. I talked about a lot of things on that episode. For almost 20 minutes I talked about all the stigmas that exist and how they need to end. But I also shared how some of those stigmas affect me personally in hopes that my story could help somebody. I’ve said this before many many times but that’s why I keep sharing my story. I do it to help others who’ve maybe gone through the same things.
Now before I go on I’d like to issue a HUGE trigger warning to anyone who might feel uncomfortable by what I’m about to talk about. If talking about suicide ideation or sexual assault makes you uncomfortable or triggers you in anyway you don’t need to read this post. In fact I’d rather you didn’t. I’m holding so much love for you if you’ve struggled with suicide ideation or have any type of mental illness. Just know you are not alone.
I talked about this on my podcast last night but when my horrible relationship ended I wasn’t entirely sure I wanted to live anymore. That was the second time those types of thoughts came up for me. The first was in high school, I was sexually assaulted (as you all know) and I couldn’t tell anyone. I tried to drink myself to death. For a year and a half.
I hope by sharing that I can help someone and I’ll leave some resources below for you. g
