This will be an unusual piece to read. It was a comment… on John Elder Robison blog… here you go, reader.
This is my first time reading a John Elder Robison blog, so I’m not entirely sure if this is appropriate to comment on. But I have to get this off my chest–as well as I am waaay too anti-social to vocalize my opinion on social medias–I am reminded by your comment when Louis CK said in his opening monologue on his Netflix special about suicide about how we don’t “talk about it.” It rung my bell because I was hospitalize under false understandings, believe me, when I sent an email to my then- counselor that I was going to end my life. Then came a knock on the door. Two officers. Responding to a call. For the record, I never had any desire to end my life. After the responds I was taken to hospital, checked in, evaluate, and kept under close watch until 2 o’ clock in the morning when a room was available. It was a long day.
That was 4 years ago. I tell you this because in the mets of it all, I wasn’t allowed to talk about anything suicide related things. If I did, for example, my medicine would be upped, and I would be even closer monitored. My point is while, yes, a sensitive issue, we should be able to talk about it in open context. How else can we move pass it?
Anyways I figured this will be all dust under the rug. Thanks for the read. Take care.
