PLEASE STOP TALKING ABOUT LOVE.

Please focus on making DBT, DBS, TMS and Ketamine available to the 99%.

DBT, DBS, TMS and Ketamine save lives.

Love does not.

Thank you to for sharing the truth in her sister’s obituary in the Duluth (Minn.) News Tribune.  I read about it in the Washington Post.

I told the truth in my sister’s obituary, so that others might choose to live.

 

I live with suicidal depression. It is recurrent. It is severe. It is awful.

I am sick of hearing ‘choose to live’ – because the choice isn’t mine anymore.  I have done everything I can to choose to live. Now it is up to the insurance companies.

Dear Insurance Companies:

Make DBS, DBT, TMS and Ketamine available to consumers who are not in the Top 1% for income.  DBS, DBT, TMS and Ketamine have little to no side effects.  DBS, DBT, TMS and Ketamine are all proven to save lives.  DBS, DBT, TMS and Ketamine are all shown to stop suicidal thoughts quickly and without side effects.

Please support organizations that working on research and funding and availability of currently available treatments.

And please read Eleni’s article. To me, someone living – and working full time – with suicidal depression, this is the most important sentence:

“Depression lied to my sister.”

Depression lied to my sister. Depression lied to my sister. Depression lied to my sister.

Depression lies to me every single day. It’s hard not to listen to it.  It sounds like the truth and it speaks louder than all of you put together.

Please focus on getting DBS, DBT, TMS and Ketamine approved for use and available for people like me who, when healthy, choose to live and do everything in their power to NOT listen to their brains.

I am going to work now.

Because it helps me a lot of the time to live my life instead of listening to my brain.
