i suffer from serious anxiety and have 4 about 8 years now and i have almost killed myself many times as no one can explain the pain of it and how you feel like youc ant breathe and get dizzy and so much more
anxiety and depression is the worse thing in the world beyond any physical pain and sickness because there is nothing anyone can do to make it better and you cant make it go away
for the rest of my life i will do what i can to stay alive and fight this and do what ic ant o make sure no one else has to feel it because the ppl who feel it are usually the one who care the most for the world
its that care that lets you feel the pain and its not right
I know how depression hits. It's a serious problem. I really hate it when it hits...it's like it's all I can do to not hurt myself. (EDIT: Physically, anyways. Emotionally, I still haven't figured out how to stop it...)
While I mostly agree with Neilson, the fact is that people kill themselves because they feel hopeless. Without hope, we are dead anyways. What's the point of living physically if you don't feel alive in your heart of hearts? Some people go out in a blaze of glory and kill others; others merely end their own lives.
Either way, it's tragic, and while it shouldn't happen, it does. And it sucks donkey bawls to feel like you're in that position.
some of you are going to hate me for writing this but seriously no matter what your going through it shouldnt be enough reason to kill yourself
It's partially because you have a biased point of view. That's not meant to be insulting, just that until you've been in the situation where you seriously consider taking your own life you can't truly appreciate how bad they feel.
Yeah tell me about it, I've been seeing the posts all over facebook and youtube and it's just ridiculous. Sure nothing on the internet should be taken seriously but when you start disrespecting the dead you're crossing a line. Those people piss me off to no end.
We all would. Schools gotta be more strict when it comes to bullying.
That's the problem, they think that stuff like dress codes and stuff are going to fix the problem but what they need to do is quit and get involved directly. Unfortunately most of the time the teachers ignore the behavior because they either dont want to get involved or favor the children doing the bullying. Or sometimes the oblivious ones don't think it's doing any harm and don't bother observing the student to see if it is or not.
Amanda Todd: Teenager Who Had Chronicled Her Bullying On YouTube Commits Suicide.
This just breaks my heart, bulling any type of it whether it's cyber or a like. I hate it.
Maybe she has done a few things, that some would label her as a sl*t. But we all make mistakes, I know I have. But no one, I mean no one should be treated to such a way, one kills them selves.
Amanda Todd posted a heartbreaking video on YouTube five weeks ago detailing her battle with online harassment and bullies, but this week the 15-year-old gave in to the battle and committed suicide.
Amanda uploaded the video entitled “My Story: Struggling, bullying, suicide and self harm” in September. In the video, she holds up pieces of paper which detail her story, a painful tale of online harassment and shunning at school, the Vancouver Sun reported.
Near the end of the video, she writes: “Every day I think why am I still here? … I have nobody. I need someone.”
Now Amanda Todd’s mother hopes the video can continue to serve a purpose.
“I think the video should be shared and used as an anti-bullying tool. That is what my daughter would have wanted,” Carol Todd, Amanda’s mother, told The Vancouver Sun in a message on Twitter.
Amanda Todd’s video noted that she was not trying to get attention, but wanted “to be an inspiration and to show that I can be strong.”
The video also delves into the depths of her bullying, The Huffington Post noted. It tells of how in 7th grade she and friends would use webcam to talk to new people, and, at one point, a stranger lured her into flashing the camera. A year later, the man contacted her on Facebook and threatened to send pictures of her topless if she didn’t “put on a show.”
The stranger knew all of Amanda Todd’s intimate detail, including her address, school, friends, relatives, and the names of her family members. Soon the naked photos were forwarded to all of them.
After the incident, Amanda Todd developed depression and anxiety disorders, followed by a path into drugs and alcohol. She changed schools and tried to make new friends, but the stranger struck again, making a Facebook page that used her naked photo as a profile picture.
“Cried every night, lost all my friends and respect people had for me … again … then nobody liked me,” she wrote in the video.
News of Amanda Todd’s suicide is reaching high ranks in Canada. Premier Christy Clark, who started her own anti-bullying campaign while she was a radio host, posted a short video on YouTube Thursday sending her sympathies to Amanda’s family.
“I want to say to everyone who loved her, to all her family and friends, how sorry I am about her loss,” Clark — who spearheaded an anti-bullying campaign while she was a radio host — says in the video.
“No one deserves to be bullied. No one earns it. No one asks for it. It isn’t a rite of passage. Bullying has to stop.”
Amanda Todd’s own message to people being bullied was to urge them to stand up for themselves and to help others facing bullies:
“If you see that someone is being bullied, don’t be afraid to tell the bully to stop doing what they are doing. Make sure to tell them that it’s wrong and that they shouldn’t bully other kids.”
Even after her death, Amanda Todd’s fight against bullying is drawing supporters. A Facebook memorial page in her honor has more than 11,000 people liking it with hundreds of comments on the site.
