    so, i took a little trip the pharmacy today and handed over my stash of pills, my "just in case" pills, my "way out if i need 'em" pills. just stuffed 'em all in a bag and said to the pharmacist "i was cleaning out the medicine cabinet and i don't need these anymore, can you dispose of them?"

    it took alot of hard work to get to this point and a big part of that work happened here on this site.

    i wouldn't say i'm 100% better, but i think this is an important milestone and i wanted to celebrate it with you.

    six months ago i was recovering from a suicide attempt and was in the final stages of planning for my next attempt. i thought i was alone, a loser, and plagued with self-hatred. i thought i was doing the world a favour by leaving. i have never been so glad to be so wrong. in fact, my new mantra is "could i be wrong about this..." and it works well for me.

    thank you all for being such an important part of my recovery.

    That is such wonderful news cath. What an amazing show of courage. I am so proud of you. I hope you are able to continue on this path. The time is coming when suicide no longer enters your mind. That will be a day for us all to rejoice. For now-let's have a celebratory party. :party:
