This could all change (which is why I'm putting all sorts of contact options to make her visible).
What is needed are people responding to this cry for help with compassion and NOT judgment.
This is a case where both meds and the administering of the same are to blame coupled with voices of those who have been abused getting ignored or even stifled.
Does anybody reading this feel as if they need to call this number:

I hope that this message will help someone.
Remember that people who are feeling suicidal aren't bad people, and they aren't just trying to make you feel sorry for them and to get attention when they talk about suicide.
Even if their words are more words to vent than final words, they are still hurting, and this means that something is seriously missing in our society re: how we see others.
I really like a note I read on a sign outside of a little country church several years ago that said that, instead of pointing fingers, we should offer extended hands.

a question. Who wants to play the part of "Invalid Item" and answer me back?
Of course, anyone arriving later can just keep the game going. Be sure to share this fun game with others. For anyone who hasn't read it yet or wants to read it again, check out what I wrote about this by going here:

. One more thing: Here's the latest entry in

"Invalid Entry" . And this sums up -- at least, in part -- what I've been up to. It's been an interesting time and still continues to be...
One final thing: Please check out a couple of newbies and encourage them.
alwaysaway might not be strong when it comes to the mastery of the written word when it comes to the mechanics of perfect spelling, etc., but she has a lot to say that needs to be heard. When you rate and review her, focus on content instead of mechanics, as she's someone who needs to be heard.
The other one, I believe, is an oldie who's returned after being away for too long: dragonblue2. Get to know her. She, too, has a lot to share.
This is still being worked on but wanted for it to show a created date of September 16, 2018. You will understand that shortly...I'm now laying the groundwork, so watch me work if you're up and seeing this...
Just wanted to let you know that martiangrl has written a romantic, set-in-high-school novella that I think you'll enjoy reading. It's located in her Blogger/Blogspot Blog. This will take you to the first chapter:
