Commemorating World Suicide Prevention day 2020: 11 years on
#worldsuicidepreventionday! I attempted suicide in 2009 and in 2014 I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This is a mental illness but am not letting that diagnosis keep me down.
Back to that February 2009, I was fed up with life, stuck in an abusive marriage I couldn't see a way out of all that. I depressingly thought taking my own life although 5 months pregnant at the time was going to be the best solution to my misery.
But; that baby kicked me in my womb as I lifted that knife, God told me it wasn't worth it. That I could leave to live and there was still so much I had to do in the world for me, mine and humanity.
I left my marriage in 2011 and left my country same day after a 6 years abusive marriage. I left my three sons behind but I knew he wasn't going to harm them because he got so much ego and would try to be a good Father now to show the world I was the but. I was away for four years, and then like a phoenix I rose and was ready.
I came back in 2015 that strong woman he can't even look at again not to mention abuse in any form. Am not in any committed relationship again cause am careful.
I share my story unreservedly to raise awareness, sensitze and advocate for a more compassionate world.
