I am not a statisitc.
It is shown that there is 1 death every 13 minutes by suicide;
Suicide takes the lives of over 38,000 people per year;
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in all ages
and the 3rd leading cause of death in teenagers;
they say only 80-90% of adolescents who seek treatment are successful.
I am not a statistic.
Just because I attempted three times in one year does not make me a statistic.
I am more:
I am human,
I am courageous,
I am strong-willed,
I am brave,
I am powerful,
I am loved,
I am happy.
Most importantly, I am not a statistic and never will be.
I am Nicole, and I am proud to be me.
