I attempted suicide before and it was the worst time of my life. My entire world was a black pit of hopelessness and despair. When I asked for help, I was told by a nurse that I just needed to learn to live with it; I was always going to be suffering and it wasn’t going to get any better. A health care “professional”. It was that suicide attempt that landed me in a mental hospital where I was able to speak to people that actually gave a shit. They pulled me out, and helped me get back out o life again. They gave me hope when I had none. They assisted me where others had shunned me. At that moment, my wife was 6 weeks pregnant and I didn’t know until 3 days into my hospitalization. My son is almost 10 now, and we are each other’s worlds.

Over here in the UK we still have that “stiff upper lip” stereotype floating around. A lot of guys (and woman for that matter) grab a bottle of their favourite booze or drug to deal with it rather than being open about it. Luckily the tide is slowly shifting to a more positive outlook about talking about shit to each other.

Thanks for this one Goat, I have suffered depression and suicidal issues most of my life so this means a lot to me, the Vaping Misfts are doing a 12 hours stream for mens mental health on the 28th March starting at 9pm UK, big love bro👊🏻🤘🏻🦇

I've been down that particular rabbit hole in the past, tried drowning it in booze like many others. I was able to work past it with the help of my family, thank god. Nobody is immune, but checking out doesn't really solve anything, just transfers the suffering to someone else.

The way I look at it now is simple: There's only two people on the face of the planet I have to keep happy. The first is
the one I see in the mirror, the second is the one I married 20 years ago.

Everyone else, well, I'll not go out of my way to be mean/rotten/cruel to you, but you're not my priority either.

after i get my power chair i will come up and we can have race between our chairs lol. i just did a video on some of these issues , also the looks from people when you are in the store using the power chairs they have.

I'm a youtuber and yes I do a show for mental health but I totally agree men have feelings to we get taught to be strong and dont show emotions but that's wrong I am a type of person that builds things up on my shoulders and over time I hit rock bottom the only thing I can say is talk to someone and dont be a afraid to talk

My wife died of cancer, 14 months later our daughter died in a car wreck. After that I got a new home where you get rubber silverware. 6 months later I got loose. I'm twisted, saying I'm sick makes it sound like there's a cure.
