UPDATE: Late Sunday night I received emails from friends of an artist who expressed suicidal ideations on his public social media page. I published one of the emails after the break.

I also receiving an email from the artist accusing me of making him feel "extremely uncomfortable" and invading his privacy.

I wrote this post with the best of intentions which was to get the word out to someone close to him in the hopes that they would intercede and get him the help that he needs.

In his email, he said he is seeking counseling to help him cope with his issues.

He didn't say it, so I will: Thank you to everyone who left heartfelt messages of hope, love, and encouragement on his page. I was deeply moved by the outpouring of love and compassion for your fellow man!

Hello,

I am contacting you in regards a blog post that submitted to the Sandra Rose website. The post includes an artist who is on the brink of suicide. Although the post was for encouragement purposes which is very understandable, it can be embarrassing for the victim. From my observations, your blog is usually dedicated to celebrity gossip, and political matters which makes the particular circumstance even less befitting to the site. In the context of gaining mass support for circumstance, suicidal thoughts and attempts usually do not take that particular route. Suicide is very personal and should be handled carefully, and approaches for prevention varies by person. An argument may be that his initial post weren't private, but some people use social media to vent which is very normal. The comments were very encouraging, yet deemed generic because people were told to comment and did not do it out of free-will. I can imagine the negative attention it will and already has brought because some will think it is a hoax. For future references, I think contacting the person involved directly and just showcasing his work to show appreciation would be more genuine. I would highly appreciate if the post is removed, and in future make better decisions on handling serious matters like suicide. I hope this email is not taken out of context and it is fully understood. This is not to offend nor attack you or your blog and I hope your journalism endeavors are successful.

Best Regards,

Kam

    Dear God,what girl/boy done tole this young man that the relationship as he knew it is over?

  • Meme81

    I will pray for him! He needs his family to intervene, too.

  • Taylor

    who is he though, so I can pray for him a little better :(

  • fancysmancy

    he sound like he thinking too much about himself. He need to fix his eyes on JESUS.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Very sad. Dope work on his page. Pray someone in person can reach out and pull him back. ??

  • KayDot

    Sad..

  • KayDot

    People that truly want to off themselves just do it without notice. 
    People that want ATTENTION does isht like this... 

  • Meme81

    Well, I guess that's why God invented intercessory prayer.

  • That’s Interesting

    Just because he wants attention, doesn't mean he's not serious. This IS a cry for help.

  • KayDot

    I'm not discounting that it can't be serious I really just wish people will stop living their personal lives out on Social Media...

  • Bayou Classic

    Where is this young man's family?! I'm praying that someone can get to him before it's too late...God help him??????

  • SummerBaby

    Such a sad place to be. My ?? goes out to him & his family. Hopefully he'll get some much needed help. ??

  • That’s Interesting

    I think he's desperate and sad. He's not thinking logically or clearly.

  • Sassy

    this is a cry for help, truly suicidal people do not advertise or give an estimate as to when they want to take their life

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    Somebody PLEASE help me understand this. This man is threatening to commit suicide on Monday and “Miss Jia” is reaching out to people on social media to talk him out of it or to call the suicide prevention
    line? She also wants to be notified after you do so, for what? Is she keeping track of how many people care about him?
    This man needs professional help, not a bunch of people
    telling him why he should not end his life. Besides which, there are some
    people who would go on his page and encourage him to do it.

  • Letmecommentbeforeicant

    Hopefully he gets the help he needs and seeks God for guidance. He's in a dark place that's a challenge for humans to pull him out of.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I'm praying that peace and joy flood his soul!!!!!Praying angels of God encamp around him and that he can be delivered and set free from whatever is tormenting his mind, body and spirit! He needs to be placed on a mental health hold ! Praying someone can have him committed and evaluated!

  • A D N

    LORD GOD, IN THE NAME OF JESUS...HELP YOUR CHILD! HE NEEDS YOU MORE NOW THAN EVER! Help him understand that life has its ups and downs, and help him to see the good side of it because it is there. As I read his words, I hear him say according to his experiences, unfortunately life is too tough to live. He is trying to find the understanding to the sense of living day to day with pain. This is a reality for him. Hopefully, and prayerfully, we as the readers can help reveal life is tough, but he has to be more tough. Why? Because of the things to come such as a significant other, a great job, a new home and car, giving back to others and sharing his story, children, trips around the world, etc.
    I always see sunshine after the storm. Some storms lasts for days and causes a lot of damage, but one can always rebuild. I heard a smart woman teach about memory. We retain what is important and lose what isn't. I suggest he lets go of what he is holding on to, and think on things to come. Draw into him the things that can change his life. Pain doesn't last always. He wants help, sympathy, love, encouragement and understanding. He just feels alone and desperate, but can be saved...and it appears he wants to be saved.

  • I cAll ThE sHoTs…

    He doesn't want to die. He wants help.

  • A D N

    But many do live their lives on social media...In this case, this is good because there are many people available to help him, if this is the true case.

  • Zettai

    Because of the way this man chose in inform people of his intent, I hate to say that I don't know if this is a cry for help or a cry for attention... anyway I hope he doesn't kill himself.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    This is heartbreaking. I'm praying for him hopefully he seeks help.

  • Ruby shine

    I'm speaking from the other side as someone who's brother has committed sucide, it's extremely devastating for a family to live through. The grief & pain from those you leave behind NEVER ends.

    Just because you think you're worthless DOESN'T make it true okay?You're allowed to scream, you're allowed to cry but don't give up. You are not alone, people surprisingly understand ok? It's fine if all you did today was breathe. I'm sorry you're in pain. Depression is not a choice but recovery is. Just..be..willing.

  • eljjai

    Attention seeking. Depressed peole don't write about it they do it. I tell you this new generation of kids are just unable to cope with reality. You are not a special snow flake. No one in life deserves anything, life does not guarantee you anything. We all suck it up and keep on going. I suggest you do the same young man.

  • Shayna Carney

    I definitely agree

  • JayCee087

    I agree.

    I understand this young man's pain as I many a time I have felt like life has no point. I've gone through it different days throughout my life. But it's never got to a point to where I would want to end my life. There comes a time where one has to accept his/her reality for what it is, learn from it, and seek how to make it a better reality. Suicide is never the answer. This young man needs professional help to figure out why he is feeling the way he does, and determine how to alter his reality to make himself a more happier person. I certainly hope he, as well as others, can get it.

  • Bonny

    Depression is real people.

  • AnonymousRose

    Sir if you reading this, taking your own life will not help, if you feel no love NOW, take your life and see real darkness, there is no peace to the wicked , what you are thinking about doing is wicked, and when its all over, son, you will NEVER rest, you will forever be tormented forever and Ever, meaning no ending will ever come to cure your real pain. and once you there, you cant come back here and try again, THAT is IT FOR YOU, think SON think...you not the only person that has never felt love, or feel outcast, it happens, but you can push thru the pain inside....get off social media and spend time with yourself.. find you. if you go ahead and take your life,I cant pray RIP cause you will not be resting in PEACE, even if some don't believe, why chance it when non of us know, better be safe that sorry...

    Hell, ain't least make it count for something ??

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Maybe a google image search will lead back to his Facebook? I can't do it via mobile. His family needs to be alerted if they aren't aware. Who do you send to a suicidal Black mans home? Would the suicide hotline send licensed people out? Non armed people? He follows mostly women on Instagram, are any of them his family?

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    I remember maybe 6 years ago a young Black man threatened suicide online, and many on that particular site encouraged it. On webcam. And he did it. He was young though. I'm wondering if this man is between that 27-30 age group. Tough time for everyone, but especially the artsy types.

  • Cheddup Already Damn

    Disagreed. Do some research on depression from social media. That is the Problem... ??

  • Cheddup Already Damn

    I hear ya. And that's all that folks are probably gonna tell this guy.

    SR really showed out today's Friday post :rollseyes:

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I thought about that, too.

  • nekkkyj

    Is he serious

  • Cheddup Already Damn

    And regardless if nobody else on this earth loves you, GOD loves you. Loves you so much he sent his son to die for all of our sins. GOD bless...

    On another note, IONO what I'm gonna eat. My chef has the night off. For shame ?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Good point.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    True. People should unplug from social media. It can be addictive which makes depression worse.

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    Can.you.say.attention.WHORE.

  • Cheddup Already Damn

    Whatcha sipping on SR?

    Is this the blogger that can't pay her bills? ?

  • Saphistication

    He's just looking for attention. No one writes a thesis prior to committing suicide, they just do it. Maybe he's writing a book or something, his words remind me of the movie American Psycho. Good luck.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    When depressed/suicidal people decide to end their lives they usually are relieved and upbeat. They give away their personal possessions. This guy is doing the opposite.

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Google image search his picture for me. Please. I'm no where near a comp, tablet...

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    My heart goes out to you and your family.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I see your point. But regardless, he is crying out for help. He needs professional help.

  • Smartypants

    I hope someone gets through to him! If you're reading this, young man: it gets better!

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    He seems to be crying out for help more than actually
    getting ready to commit suicide, but there is no way to be sure. There are people responding to him on his Instagram page and some of the posts have been taken down, but now he says he can’t spend another month in Baltimore. A couple of people suggest he set up a " go fund me" account and move elsewhere, but if he is suicidal he will be suicidal no matter where he goes. He needs professional help

  • Cheddup Already Damn

    Who this guy up top?

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Yes. That's the only picture of his face on his insta. Maybe the same one is on his Facebook, which may have his name...Or his family members names.

  • Cheddup Already Damn

    Ok. *mission impossible music*
    Imma try right now. :pc:

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Good idea, Brenden. Family members can call the Suicide hotline and give them his number and they will call him and talk to him.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    "A couple of people suggest he set up a " go fund me" account and move elsewhere, but if he is suicidal he will be suicidal no matter where he goes. He needs professional help"

  • Liz

    The whole situation is weird... My first thought honestly is he just wants attention but that doesn't mean he doesn't intend to follow through. Where are his family and friends? Don't they follow him...hope he reaches out for help in real life

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Here's a thought these insurance companies need to pay more on mental illness.... that should be a huge focus... any canidate in this next election put that on the table has a plus.... do you know majority of psychiatrist and psychologist want full payment up front and want the patient to file the claim with the insurance COMPANY???? Man ... not to mention most inusrance companies only pay for so many visits!!!!! Note you pay damn near 300 dollars every two weeks . (ACTUALLY OVER). PLUS DENTAL AND VISION (PPO) Damn near 750+ a month.. don't let ya have a family plan with dental and vision .... I work for the feds.... they supplement damn near 300 but I pay 300 + every 2 weeks. fo health alone... but we worried bout a got dayum Bruce ... Wake the fawk up yo ....

    Its so hard to say when you dealing with an emotionally unstable person because everybody is different. My husband suffers from more than one mental illness and he has had suicidal ideation as part of his issues. Most people around him though have no clue. None of his coworkers know, most of his family doesn't believe his diagnosis despite the fact that he has other family members with mental issues. The whole situation sounds suspect because from my personal experience people don't broadcast those type of thoughts they just sit and fester. However I do agree with what jenie said when said that there must still be something wrong with him to put that out there. Even if he doesn't really want to follow through he is hurting bad.

  • BlancheD

    I remember when you talked me down once. I appreciate it still Auntie. When you are depressed sometimes you just want someone not around you to listen bc they don't have their own preconceived notions about your situation. I'm praying for him.

  • Liz

    You speak from a place of experience because you know the struggle. I don't think anyone wants to be insensitive but how he is going about it is abnormal to say the lest. Am I skeptical about him actually going through with a suicide attempt yes but he still needs help but instagram is not were he needs it from. He needs support from friends and family because that is what is going to be most meaningful for him.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Absolutely right .... I totally agree

  • BlancheD

    I beg to differ. I haven't been suicidal for years but I remember the time when I was the closest I sent out signs via social media bc my family didn't see or truly understand what was going on.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Never play with suicide even if you think he is doing it just for attention .... had a friend ... we said that for years... and guess what she is dead... left the world with her 5 yr old. ... this is nothing to play with period ... .and if he is playing .... dude has a warped fawking mind and need some serious therapy ....

  • BlancheD

    I have got on here SEVERAL times when I was depressed bc I just wanted to put it in the atmosphere without feeling judged.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Look at God! Every life is precious. I'm happy to see you are well.

  • Liz

    I'll have to respect your input because I have never personally experienced that but from my own situation with my husband the support from others, professionals etc was nice but it wasn't until he started getting more support from close family members he was really able to pull himself up. I honestly think the fact that a lot of his family still doesn't care to understand or support him is one of the biggest hindrances in his battle. I'm glad though it worked for you and you are in a better place, you seem like a nice person.

  • BlancheD

    been great these past couple months...got serious about taking my meds and I def notice a difference ???

  • BlancheD

    I'm not saying he's ready to actually do it bc as Sandra said, most ppl when they have really made it up in their minds they are gonna do it, they feel good about it, esp if its been thoughts they have been dealing with it for years. But the fact that he's even contemplating it should be a red flag. A storm is brewing.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    AMEN.

    The mental health system in our country is disgraceful, and if
    you are poor or without adequate health care insurance it is a nightmare for all involved, including the families of those that need help the most.
    There are so many people in need of help and our priorities are
    screwed. Any candidate that focused on this problem would have my attention,but it’s not going to happen.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    If you that depressed imo you should not ..... Always seek professional help first ... always.... the internet has plenty of mentally unstable fools hence the jack azz on this here blog .... believe it or not a lot feed off that and take that .... and use it against ya ... always seek professional help .... (Pray first (professional next) God did not make professional therapist just cause .... faith without work is dead ... he places the tools out here for us. to utilize .. there is always hope....

    I definitely know its not the BEST way...but if it wasn't for Sandra telling me go to the doctor and get on my meds idk how long it would have taken me to actually do it. I wouldn't suggest it tho lol not at all. these folks crazy as hell.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Jesus.... gotta go

  • jusstlooking

    Maybe they know of this individual. Has it been confirmed the he is a real person? or is this a sick person playing games.

  • Liz

    I do think he is looking for attention but when you look for negative attention that usually stems from hurt. This is just a reminder that as much as we look outside to the internet and social media for amusement and validation we also have to check in with those around us to make sure they're okay. It makes no sense that people online are looking to help him and his family may not even know.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I love you ... so true

  • BlancheD

    starting to question if we are living in actual hell ? I'm going to bed yall... this is a trigger for me. I wish I had the heart to do more than pray but I'm still tryna save myself. If you need help...please get it...check into the ER or something. *opens up Prozac bottle* ??

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Man ... unbelievible with the prices with the medication ....

  • Northside Zeta

    Take care of yourself Blanche. Thank you for being so open about your struggles. Last summer my sister called me and told me she was going to commit suicide. She said she had called all of her friends and several of our family members and no one seemed to care. We were in different states, so I couldn't go to her. I called my mom and she basically said my sister was looking for attention. I had to threaten to send the police to her house to get her to go check on my sister. The hurt and pain my sister expressed over the phone was real and raw and I have been there myself. Not sure if she would have gone through with it, but she needed help in that moment.

  • Liz

    Thank god you were there for you sister and were able to be the voice of reason and compassion. Hope all is well with her.

  • Liz

    Thats a shame. I'm glad she is doing better but there really should be better systems in place for people who have to take medications. It makes no sense that anyone can't get needed medication just because of money.

  • @foxyenbygrl97

    he needa call on Jesus!!

  • KayDot

    Sandra you're a nurse, is it possible for someone to be addicted to Attention? Like a real addiction?
    People go to the extreme for 'likes' its CRAZY!

  • Northside Zeta

    Agreed. What complicated matters was that we were unaware that she was on any medication. She moved back to our hometown and hit a rough patch. Her behavior was really erratic and everyone assumed it was substance abuse. She only admitted to being off her medication when my mom threatened to kick her out. Then she told her that she had been taking Prozac for years and had run out two months earlier. She had been using alcohol and other drugs to self medicate.

  • DjangoBro

    Reading some of the comments on here left me disappointed in how insensitive some of these posters are. Truly disgusting. You think he's just doing this for attention just because? He's begging for help! I hate when these blind people stigmatize mental illness. It's real and not a choice! Understand that! People that suffer from mental illness suffer in silence, they want people to help them. Think before you decide to post stupid shit.

  • SouljaSociety

    Yeah right. he's not gonna kill himself... It's just a cry for help.

  • Saphistication

    You are absolutely right. I'm sure this story has gone viral and if he's serious hopefully someone close to him will interject before he harms himself.

  • Saphistication

    I am not playing with suicide, I'm stating my view on this topic. This is the internet, this can be a study to see how many people actually care and are willing to help a person that is suicidal...there are a lot of hoax. It was very detailed and descriptive to the point where it seems fictional to ME.

  • Saphistication

    Sorry for your loss.

  • Beverly Clark

    Sandra, I work with MI individuals. There is a behavior called attention seeking behavior. Some go to the extreme to get it especially if the consequences is a positive reward. This young man sounds mentally ill. Mentally ill people who are bi polar will sometimes kill themselves. While mentally ill narcissistic people who are schizophrenic will kill you!

  • derty001

    I hate when people say "this is for attention"... I feel the same as him right now in my 21yo life and I wake up everday wishing I was dead. You just want someone to care and stand by you through everything... And after a while life seems too fake and coincidental to be true along with a realization of how you are really alone except the fake love from your family.... I wish I knew him so we could kill ourselves together so we wouldn't have to die alone too.

  • Helen

    Good Morning Sandra and Rose Garden
    I saw his IG acct last night and he must have taken down the suicide note. IG is not playing and will remove a post. The guy is very talented and had offers for jobs and artwork.

    ?that he does not take his own life. As some has sad Mental Illness is real and he should seek counseling.

  • Irish Lopes

    Much more to live for the talent that you have is a blessing that"s a gift from within yourself be proud and acknowledge you are somebody your world does not stop because right now you may have doubt. Give you yourself a chance to master your skills you were born with. Some day you"ll be able to share with your childrens. Love yourself to say I"m a believer in me and I"ve come to far to loose it all.

    Mental illness is real. Mental illness is painful.

    This could be my child. I just spent 3 months by his side in the hospital.
    It is not something you share because of the stigma.

    I have no satisfactory answers when my 26 year old asks:
    Mom, why did God make me this way?
    Mom, will I ever be able to have a normal life?
    Mom, will I ever be able to have a wife and children?
    Mom, I want to die so my life will be better when I’m dead.

    I simply tell him:
    That he is perfect in God’s eyes and that everything is in his hands.
    Hold on and be thankful. Live life one day at a time. Today may be the darkest day ever, but tomorrow may be the best day of your life.

    When you feel desperate and downtrodden because your mind doesn't work right, look around; you have feet to walk, eyes to see, and a heart that beats. Be thankful. Even though this life is not all that you want it to be THIS is the life that you have. You have to play the hand that life has dealt you otherwise you have no life at all.

    But honestly, I know that I need more faith.
    My prayers to everyone dealing with life's ups and downs.

  • tami

  • GuestSTAR

    This has the smell of ATTENTION SEEKING. LMMFBAO!!!!!, there are over 400 comments under the Future article and barely over a 100 trying to talk this attention seeking man out of his suppose it suicide.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I don't get it. Is he sick or just deeply depressed? I thought his story was like the young lady who moved to another state and took a pill or something to commit suicide. Reading through some of his posts, it's sounds like he's frustrated with life because of solitude and lack of income???? Welcome to the family; we all have problems and deal with the differently.

    So come Monday, then what? What is waiting for? If you need help, seek help.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    and then what? Folks better stop with that and deal with their stuff. You can be religified and believe what you want. Right now today, in this situation, it has to be dealt with rationally. Generally speaking. I have no gas in my car, call on Jesus. I cant feed my kids, call on Jesus. I got fired for no reason at all, but they say I was always rude to customers, call on Jesus. Call on YOU.

  • WeKnowsItAll

    This may be a real cry for help or a ploy for attention. I can't be sure. What I do know is that no-one understands the pain a suicidal person is going through but them. Thinking about the pain they are causing their family/friends isn't a deterrent because that person is in so much pain themselves. It can feel like hell every day. Some people give up when it becomes too much for them to handle, and they honesty believe that everyone would be better off once they are gone.

    I don't support suicide, but I get it. And I can't judge that person for making that decision for themselves, whether we deem it to be selfish or not. Sometimes no amount of counseling or "being there" will change anything for them, and ultimately the decision to end their life is entirely their own.

    I hope this man gets the help that he needs and can learn to live with/work through his pain.

  • Saphistication

    Sorry to hear about your friend. I wasn't offended, I just don't want to come off like I'm making a mockery or minimizing suicide.

    Mental illness carries a stigma born out of ignorance. The
    exact cause of mental illness is unknown so we tend to look at it as something that happens “to other people,” until it happens to us or someone we love. Even then we tend to keep it a secret and I applaud you for being so outspoken about your situation.
    I know how hard it must be for you to have your son ask you
    these questions, especially since there are no definite answers, but I truly believe the faith you have is what has brought you this far and pray that it will only get stronger. God bless you and your son.

  • TheWildChild

    How truly awful and sad. ?? I'm sorry - he reminds me of one my entitled and spoiled cousins who would threaten suicide when things didn't go in her favor. She was a manipulative BiPolar selfish 23yr old who would always get what she needed to stop her suicide attempts. ? I wish he could attend this art festival or workshop he speaks of this weekend. Well wishes for him.

    I know all about the intense psychological pain that people who suffer from depression endure. I was a depressed kid. Every morning when I awoke I felt a gnawing intense pain in my stomach. I attempted suicide as a pre-teen. I really did believe my mom and my brothers were better off without me. I was home alone, and I swallowed an entire bottle of red pills and lay down to die. Nothing happened. I didn't even feel drowsy. When my mom came home I told her what I did. I thought she was upset with me for wasting her medicine. That depression followed me through high school, college, and nursing school. I did receive therapy at every step along the way, but no one suggested antidepressants. I finally sought help from a psychiatrist when I moved to Atlanta. She prescribed antidepressants. The side effects were hell. But I vividly remember the morning I woke up and that gnawing intense pain that I felt in my stomach since I was a kid was gone. I felt like the weight of the world was lifted off of my shoulders. The antidepressants changed my life. it was like something in my brain was broken and the antidepressants fixed it.

  • Itiswhatitis!

    I feel we should let him go if that's what he wants to do. As long as he isn't hurting anyone else. Is it selfish of us to want others to stick around because of how it would make US feel when they were no longer around? Not really considering the internal turmoil and anguish they live with on a daily basis.

  • TheRealLee

    And that is precisely the problem with suicidal folks. He plans to fix a temporary problem with a permanent solution.

    Manipulative behavior is a learned behavior. Manipulation is also a symptom of her disorder. Have empathy for her. I'm sure she's not doing it on purpose.

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I sent him a DM on IG. He didn't respond. I don't know it it's a ploy for attention. I see pain in his words. I hope he gets the help he needs. Hopefully he will see a psychiatrist first. Therapists are nice but they didn't help me.

  • Prettyreddbone?

    You saved a life through your blog. Keep up the good work!!

  • TheRealLee

    He needs to stay away from killers who will gladly help him end his life. Be careful for what you wish for. You don't want to give others the power to off you then call you suicidal like that woman who died while jailed and they are calling it suicide. WWJD. I hope he finds the help he needs.

    Killing yourself is a selfish act. If this dude wants to remove himself from this Good God given green earth we reside on then here *slides him a knife* let me help you...I'm calling yo bluff...let's see if you really 'bout that life....

    I have a story about my dorm roommate who tried to kill herself at least 4 times *she failed* before she got the attention she wanted...bottom line up front all she wanted was to go home and once she was released from the military to do that...she was happy as a clam...I was floored that someone would do all that just to get attention...smh
    She put me and her friends thru hell with her attempts...

    I'm not saying this dude isn't in any pain cause he really might be...but This dude needs to look to GOD. GOD has a way of knocking you ALL the way down just to get you to look UP to HIM! Believe me....I know..?

    *drops mic* ???

    I read your comment and I could feel pain in my own heart and the tears came from my eyes. How hard it must be to look into your child's eyes and hear him ask such things. My most sincere REAL prayers go up for you and your baby. God bless you two!

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    “I really did believe my mom and my brothers were better off without me.”
    This seems to be a common belief of people who suffer from depression- That the world is better off without them but those of us that love them know better.

    “The antidepressants changed my life. It was like something in my brain was broken and the antidepressants fixed it.”
    If you are a diabetic you take a pill or an injection and to me if your brain is broken it should be the same thing. I know not everything can be fixed with a pill but so
    many people are ashamed of their condition so they refuse to address it or get help. I am glad you were persistent and took steps to make yourself better.
    GOOD JOB SANDRA.

    So glad you made it through Sandra! Thanks for sharing!?

    But did you see the news where he is located about a black father with PhD killed himself and his 2 boys? IMO sometime the media does play a role on what/how they broadcast news. That was sad to watch. ?for those babies and family left behind.
    IMO I don't think therapists can help nor know how to liked a psychiatrist. Who can prescribe medication, in house intensive therapy and more! IMO

    So do u condone anti depressants? U don't think that they destroy your body?

  • <3 LoveDreamLive <3

    Depressed people actually show lots of signs before they attempt or commit suicide. These signs are "warning signs" and in hindsight family/friends cannot believe they didn't pick up on it. Human behavior can be explained by patterns but behavior varies. One can state that "Most depressed people just commit the act...." BUT that does not mean ALL depressed people will follow the same pattern.

    Compassion, empathy and understanding is what depressed people need. They don't need condescending attitudes or put downs. They already mentally attack themselves and "know" they are worthless, pathetic, stupid, weak etc... We need to embrace and surround them with positivity and hope.

    I have struggled with depression and I know how hard it is to see the light from the never ending blackness. I remember feeling like I was in a black hole 99% of the time. It was that 1% where I was "lucid" enough to share with someone my pain. It might have been an ambiguous sad quote or song lyric that I posted to Facebook or Twitter. When that black hole would open up and swallow me again, I'd get a text or message of people saying "hey...that's a really sad song or that's an interesting quote... just making sure you're ok. I'm here if you need me...if you need someone to talk to...." This reassurance provided enough clarity that made me realize that my depressed thoughts were wrong.This made me realize that I do matter, I do have people who love me. It's extremely hard to separate fact vs. fiction when you're depressed. I personally, found by publicly reaching out was a catalyst for me.

  • <3 LoveDreamLive <3

    I too struggle with depression. Please don't give up. 21 is such a young age, you have the whole life ahead of you. Please get professional help. You are not alone, ever. God is always with you. I am here for you. You can email me if you want at adajunk00@gmail.com My name is Nicole.

    One of the things that helped me was volunteering. I volunteer around 10 a week with a Women's Literacy Program that helps women from all walks of life improve their literacy skills. It's amazing to see how much hope and spirit they have. They refuse to allow their lack of education keep them down.They are dedicated to changing their lives. It's inspiring and gives me such an amazing feeling to actually be apart of something that matters, something life changing.

    Find something that you can give your energy and talent to. You have something to share with the world, you just have to choose to share it.

  • just saying

    We assume he has friends and family. I was that low and there was no one. The people who are related to me and "friends " told me I was dumb, crazy and going to hell, they could careless. So a stranger and my sheer willpower is why I'm still here. I stay isolated because the people closest have showed me how my existence doesn't matter. Im alive but not living for I will never put trust or faith in a human again. What a life...

To say the least I am experiencing mood swings meaning sad one min ok the next. I had a heartbreak on lsrt year that really did me n. I don't want to go back on medicine but want to control my own moods. I don't know what to do? I wanna be happy and ok but don't want to be a slave to meds.

    It is a well-known fact that the majority of the people that express their suicidal ideation do so because they want at least one person to save them from themselves. As a matter of fact, those that do are actually more likely to attempt/commit suicide.

  • esh

    people need to understand that someone's life is always worse than theirs. suicide is a fact of life but it solves nothing. life will go on after. it does change the lives of loved ones 100% but it makes things worse, not better. don't do it.

    There is universe far away you are welcome to go. The is a power there who sent you here. And give you a talent, there is sadness here, you are right. But there is happiness too. Your experience in shades and colors have already told you the truth. everything need to change everything needs to grow. If your mission is to create you need to project yourself forward beyond your comfort. To new spaces in time and artist is always define by his time. Because it is without measure it live forever.
    I have tried to inspire you
    And wish for you the best
    If you should travel stay strong in your faith.

  • cole

    Very handsome man. I don't know what you are going through, but look, if people who don't know you, take a minute to show you they care, you are a very important person. When you are down, this is not how you handle it. There have been many days when i have felt down: The loss of my Father, I was a Daddy's girl. The loss of my baby brother, he was 40. Dad to a stroke, and my brother to a heart attack. I divorced after 20 years of pure hell. Only to keep hearing my Mom tell myself and others what a wonderful person he was. I always kept everything to myself, so she has no idea, but she knew he was never home. She knew he never came to family gatherings, and was always MIA. She also knew how hard i worked, one time holding down 3 jobs. While he worked part time and got off and would not return home for hours and hours. God sent me a son, and that was how God save me. I was rock bottom and no one even knew. When God sent me my beautiful son, he gave me the strength to walk away. I have been divorced now for several years. I did not want my son to think that a man does not have to be around. I didn't want him to see me down and not happy. God sent me my Son, to save me. I am very happy now with someone who treats me the way I was accustomed to being treated when I lived at home with my Parents. Nevertheless, you gonna love this, every few months my ex calls and admits the grass was not greener on the other side, and he misses me, and says I was the best thing that ever happen to him. Then he always ask me out on a date......and I always say "No"....Boy! It feels so good! I knew he' d wake up one day! God is good, and he is always on time. God will not give you anything you cannot handle. He is making you stronger. Please, just talk to God as if he is right there with you. Keep talking to Him, and keep talking, for hours if you want, he will never get tired of hearing from you. I promise!I promise!
    Alright "Nuevisuals", you seem like a very nice and polite guy, so you're gonna have to respond to all these nice people that care about you. LOOKS LIKE IT WILL TAKE A LIFETIME!
    I expect to see you on the news when you reach 100 years old. That's a deal right? Alright.

    Smile, God Loves You! Vicki

    I know this post is supposed to be for encouragement purposes, but certain matters should be handled with caution. I know that these were posted on social media but it may have been a matter of venting. Real concern would've have been you and the other blogger contacting him personally instead of making it a post on your blog. Suicidal thoughts real or not aren't things to be taken lightly. This post and these comments could've pushed him over the edge. For future references take into account of how you treat serious matters socially.

    FRAUD!

    That's ALL he wants. Someone to see his work. I betcha if TODAY or GMA called him he would be right in there pouring his heart out.

    Grow up dude and whoever wrote this letter!

    bye leroy

  • Mahogany

    Sandra you did the right thing.

  • Kam

    He did ...that's why we're asking her to remove it. Nobody wants to be known for that period and this unwanted attention for you and others to comment on his life.. That's not okay. And for the request not to be understood is ridiculous to me.

  • Kam

    So the post still isn't deleted. Why? Everybody who was involved deleted it but you. Why? If a suicidal man doesn't want the attention he doesn't, respect his wishes. Nobody wants anything from but this post to be deleted. like how is that an issue? You're a blogger so all that you feel, deal with in life may be posted and that's your choice. All we are asking is to respect his. That's it. How is that not understandable? He doesn't want to be an entry on your blog............. And that happens in life and make adjustments.

    People like that are usually unappreciative of the kindness that is given to them. I came across 2 or 3 suicidal men on Twitter before and I sent them words of encouragement after they made similar public posts.. Shortly after they all un-followed me lol.. Without a "thank you", or anything. So Now i just mind my own business. 98% of the time, these people have friends, family and co-workers that care about them. They just attention seeking cry babies.

    Sandra that @doll private troll person is on that Draya post throwing around words like coon and monkey. She's calling people whore and dumb ass too. Oh and her reference to bumquisha and the weave appointment is very telling as well. Looks like she's mad cause most seem to be ignoring her multiple log ins.

    Privacy? Dude you posted it online. Of course people are going to talk and try to get others to help. Move in silence and seek help. Regardless if people were told to do something they still did and reached out, out of concern instead of clicking right on to the next post.

    To the artist: Seek help and stay off of the internet if privacy is a concern. Simple. Instead of a simple thanks and moving on, this looks like a cry for attention.

    Ok so that's how that works..will do then.

  • anjelndskys

    Sandra, bcuz of you I went onto instagram to offer words of encouragement to @nuevisuals.

    If he did not appreciate the support, he shouldn't have posted his sever issues onto social media.

    With that bn said, it makes me wonder if ,@nuevisuals was doing thus for publicity, to get noticed.

    How dare they aim their bitterness towards your #love4alivingsoul,

  • eljjai

    Hold on, didn't this man post his suicidal thoughts online for everyone to see? Please correct me if I am wrong.

  • @foxyenbygrl97

    ok

  • Yardgirl

    WOW!! This story was disturbing on so many levels. *speechless*

  • TheWildChild

    Did he spare his life? Was anyone able to save this poor soul? Or did someone help fund his way to the art workshop or festival he wanted to so badly attend? ? ? ? update please!

    Sandra boo I saw that exchange you had with tippietoes and If you want the drop on her just Google tippietoes comments on rhymeswithsnitch. You will see she has been called out SEVERAL times for being a troll and I truly believe she is a troll here with the multiples. She's just mad cause you have banned some of her names.
