I have battled with depression for most of my life. When I was in the summer between my ninth and tenth grade years of high school, I had something very bad happen to me. While in my tenth grade year I decided that life was too much and made a half suicide attempt. I say half attempt because it wasn’t really an attempt, but at the same time my intent was to kill myself. I have struggled with self harm from middle school to this day. I have been a Christian my whole life, but have strayed away time to time. Since I have moved to Baraboo for college, and am two and a half hours away from my mom and grandparents, it has been hard for me to stay in faith. Life 102.5 has helped me come back and helped me in my darkest storm that I have had down here. Also, has helped when my anxiety and depression come on. Just listening to a couple of songs helps. But the one that helps me the most right now is Just be Held by Casting Crowns.
I was in Las Vegas for my honeymoon and we ended up right next to the concert where the shootings occurred. This is my story.
