Don’t jump (or overdose on pills or slice your wrists or do yourself any harm)

wheelchair

This is me last Christmas a few weeks after I jumped from the top of an emergency staircase and crashed on the floor 6 meters below thus breaking part of my hip and the head of my femur. I stayed 3 months and a half in a wheelchair. I couldn’t pee or poo on my own, I hardly ever get out of the house because my dad who was in charge of me had a bad back, hence he couldn’t often drive me outside, I needed the help of nurses to wash me and dress me and I often wore pyjamas or sweatpants instead of the lovely alternative clothes I liked so much. I tried to focus on TV shows but my treatment made it difficult for me to follow the shows. I had to sleep in a medical bed in the living room.

Today I can walk again but have a limpy leg and some thigh pains sometimes. Think twice before you try to kill yourself…

  1. It’s so great you have to courage to talk about your suicide attempt openly. I know how hard it is to do so. Thank you for sharing your story with us. I don’t know what led you to attempt suicide, but I hope those circumstances have changed for the better. I wish you strength and a pain free future. Peace
