I Shot Myself In The Head - And Survived | TRULY

  • Yayınlanma Tarihi:  3 hafta önce
  • SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj A MAN who shot himself in the face astonishingly survived with barely a scar on his face. Every year on 2 September, Kevin Amundson holds a party; there’s food, drink, laughter and music; family and friends bring presents but it’s not a birthday celebration, it’s Kevin’s ‘miracle day’ party. Four years ago Kevin tried to kill himself by shooting himself in the head. Doctors gave Kevin a 50% chance of survival. Even when they knew he wouldn’t die they still predicted Kevin would have mobility and speech problems the rest of his life; but again Kevin surprised everyone by learning to walk and talk again. Apart from a scar running through his hairline, to look at Kevin, now 24, it would be hard to believe just four years ago he had blasted a bullet through his face; aside from his physical recovery, Kevin’s suicide attempt also led to him finally receiving an official diagnosis and treatment for depression.

    Kevin's Miracle Day! How wonderful for you. Yes. You are a miracle. 😊 Each May 9th since 2004 when I fractured both of my eye sockets and acquired a moderate brain injury, my friends and family celebrate " Happy Janet's Alive Day!" We don't usually gather though, so lucky for you. ❤

    I was diagnosed with depression from a young age. 13. But lately I'm the last year my depression and anxiety has gotten to a point that words cannot explain. I genuinely never knew just how bad it can get. The second you wake up you're just hounded with negative emotion. There are periods where I literally walk around all day crying. Literally. All. Day. I don't know why. I just cry. I feel scared. I feel sad. My anxiety is overwhelming. I was diagnosed with PMDD or Premenstrual Disphoric Disorder and that may be a cause of it being SOOOO deep and dark. I do have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome so my menstrual cycle has always caused me a lot of issues. But this PMDD..it's something else. It's unlike anything words can explain and I just can't comprehend how bad it is. Like sometimes I wonder if people have felt the same or if I'm the only one, since it's so bad. Literally the second I wake up I'm consumed by depression and anxiety. It's dark. But, I'd never be able to commit suicide as long as my mom is alive. My best friend committed suicide in tenth grade and it destroyed his parents and family. I could never do that. I just hope everyone contemplating suicide is able to fight that urge. Believe me I know how dark it can get. But just hang in there. If anyone out there needs someone to talk to I will be your friend. We can be friends and support each other. Just comment and we can talk.

    If anyone is considering suicide text someone please you might want life to end but when you feel alone and you tell someone what your thinking about doing they won't look at you weird

    Suicide sucks. I've gained depression over the past few years after losing my 2 friends to suicide. It's not a means to an end it's not worth I myself have tried to take my own life by an overdose and didn't succeed I have a new outlook on life and thank God for life everyday
