Hi there New to this board and wondering if you could help me or share your opinions as I know a lot of you have been there! I have struggled with depression and anxiety for 6 or 7 years, the peak being my junior year of high school. During that year, in January & February, I hit my lowest point. I had "suicidal ideations", a plan, and intent. I had written a note a few times, and was too numb to realize that I was making a bad decision. However, I never actually... "attempted" per say. There was a point during all that where I (not sure if I can post these details, so TRIG warning just in case?) had pills in my mouth, but I spit them out before swallowing. I got the help I needed before ending up in a hospital, or really 100% making a full fledged attempt. So can I call myself a 'survivor'? Because I feel like I fought off the battle, I feel that I overcame, but I'm not sure if I deserve that title of "suicide survivor". Love to you all, thanks so much!
