Should I or should I not publish these stories at some point?

People really need to read the article the Suicide Prevention people made on how to demonstrate mental issues and depression in stories and TV. This is just tiring.

Also don’t lie about you having a mental illness, and ik for a fact you don’t, your just saying that cuz you got exposed, and your trying to turn the tables and come up with an excuse but it’s a butt excuse.

Not going to say anything else, but anyone who had experience with suicidal thoughts or had a failed attempt knows that depression makes suicide seem like a choice. If you actually add it into your story, you ARE glamorizing it. I can’t believe this needs to be said to someone with depression.

This is super personal but I can’t keep bottling it up and you not coming sense. Wanna know why it’s fuckkng triggering for me? Because my brother almost died from depression, and that caused my whole fucking family to b depressed I haven’t seen him for 3 years, and I don’t want people to do the same thing he did because he didn’t feel loved. I was his twin and whenever I look in the mirror I blame myself for him being in a hospital. (DONT YOU GUYS fucking pity or else I’m leaving this thread) The last time I saw him he wouldn’t speak a word and he hasn’t for 3 years. Hence why I made a thread where if you need someone to talk to and you don’t feel loved you can pm me cuz I don’t want what happened to Aaron to ever happen to anyone else. Hope this snapped you to reality

First of all I’m not even close to being 9 but if it makes you feel better then you can continue thinking like that.
Second of all do you want a picture of an official paper where it clearly states when I was diagnosed and with what? Though you probably wouldn’t understand the language :thinking: but again if it makes you feel better then you can think that I don’t have a depression.

Now she won’t even say anything because she knows we are right

I don’t feel like arguing with someone who’s not even gonna try to listen to our POV. No one agrees with you and that’s been made sense by multiple people. Don’t add that and if I figure out you do I will do everything in my fucking power to make sure your dumbass story goes down Hope this is crystal clear :ok_hand::grin:
