    I remember that incident my dad told me

    where I drank medicine the wrong way that made me choke and run out of breath. I think I was around three or four around that time, I don't know. But yeah if I hadn't been rushed to the hospital then, I probably wouldn't be able to type this right now because I'm dead

    I was so close. I tried to hang myself.

    .. My parents found me and resuscitated me. I get angry sometimes that they kept me here. I've attempted about seven times now... overdoses, hanging... hint hint I want to die do not resuscitate!

    My sister pulled me across the train tracks

    as I stood frozen in front of it. I couldn't believe it was so close to me. I was about 9 years old.

    It was the very first week of Secondary School,

    and I was too stressed to function. I remember tightening my school tie around my neck until I couldn't breathe, then I tightened it even more. I smiled, because I thought everything was finally coming to an end, but it wasn't. Someone had seen me and led a teacher to me, who...

    than once, but I'm not in the mood to write a novel, so I'm going to write about my very first time I could've died. My mom told this to me a few months ago. I was about one year old, maybe a bit younger. My mom and dad were walking on a road; my mom was far behind, enjoying...
