Adventure of a Lifetime

I always said I would like to write a book about my journey - maybe this is the time. I can do it in little bite sized chunks which suit me. And what a journey it has been - and still is. 10 years ago in June I tried to take my own life. It made perfect sense at that time as in my head the world and my family would be better off without me. I was a burden and a waste of space. I had failed at life - simple as that. But the thing is looking back now I can see that in no way had I failed. I was unwell - more unwell than I realised and well lets just say suicide popped up on me - literally. They do say that its a hairs breadth...............but suicide is the most sensible option in your head at that time. But someone decided my time on this earth wasn't up - and by gum I'm glad that they did. To be continued........
