We gotta do betta than shooting our wounded as #Believers. Really feeling some type of way ’bout now. As a #SuicidePrevention #Advocate I cannot tell you how many times I’ve talked to people #cutting themselves DURING our conversation or people struggling with #depression and #suicidal thoughts due to being damaged by mean, fork tongued, two faced religious people in their #communities of #faith.

We have a responsibility as #humans to not coddle or enable but simply humbly REMEMBER what it felt like to not have all our **** together.

Real talk. Listen, this account is NOT designed for crisis intervention as it is not manned 24/7 but if you or a loved one need to talk to someone PLEASE call 1-800-273-TALK or Text “START” to 741-741

Can You Hear Me Now?

This is a courageous post

Accept The Bullshit

On the first of this month, I was discharged from Lancaster General Hospital’s psychiatric unit. I was there for two weeks. It was my twelfth psychiatric hospital stay. Like many people who suffer from long-term mental illness, especially those with chronic suicidal ideation, I am tired. Tired of hospitals, tired of medications, tired of therapists, tired of groups, tired of relapses, and tired of hurting.

This hospitalization was prompted by a drastic increase in the frequency and volume of the voices that I hear in my head. I have had this blog since May of 2013, but despite the voices being a constant part of my life, I have often strayed away from talking about them here. I guess it’s about time.

I SEE BEAUTY IN YOU #SuicidePreventionMonth #poetry

authenticitee speaks


Like an exposed nerve

You feel the pain of gentle wind

Wondering when the pain will end

But I pass by repeatedly

wanting to say

I see beauty in you

Every single day

I know your roots are uprooted

Protruding you can no longer hide

The scars that tell your story

And the reasons that you cry

I want to give you smiles

And air and hope and joy within

But every time I reach for you

The pain fills your eyes again

Please don’t disappear

Though selfish of me it may feel

Just know many can relate

And some have even been healed

Though internal my scars

are invisible

And my roots cling to laughter anew

Please don’t take your life today

Cause I see beauty in you




***If you or a loved one are suicidal or in crisis, PLEASE know that you matter and are not alone!…
