I Shot Myself In The Head - And Survived | TRULY

  • 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.

    "The burden of me from the world" It's funny how people are delusional about their place in the world. He is one of over 7 billion people. The world would have been fine with or without him.

    So we should try to commit suicide because we appreciate life afterwards if we survive? Or did I get the lesson wrong

    I’m so sorry for you thinking that you were so depressed and thinking that there was no way out ,you know? Kevin,are you undergoing any kind of counseling for your deep depression? Depression is a real illness and I wish a lot of people would understand that - hope that this family is undergoing some counseling. I hope that you’re making a full recovery. There’s always hope -are you on counseling and medicines? What were the reasons as to why you attempted suicide my friend? You look like you have a loving,caring family. You’re definitely a walking miracle,and you have a lot to celebrate,which is LIFE. My thoughts and prayers are definitely with you and your family Kevin.

    Yeah, Dad passed and I keep on asking myself why wasn’t I taken. Thought about if I was gone from this world instead of my father; leaving my body with an empty soul, my burdens put upon everyone I’ve ever crossed a sign of injustice, despise, menace, annoyance, everything that walks across my mind, I could be happy... even if my school crush, friends and family could be happy... even if it happens without me. Sometimes (as in sometimes every month) I ask myself why I was even born.

    Truth is, the depression was rigged from the start...








    But seriously im glad he survived, killing yourself is not an option. If you ever had a depression just talk to someone (family, friends, etc.) I'm sure they be more than happy to listen to you or alternatively, there's a suicide hotline for every country call em, don't put a hole in your head

    The more that people talk about mental health problems the better. No one should have to suffer the shame and stigma that comes with battling poor mental health. That crap still happens today. People are shamed into silence and this is why suicide attempts happen. Keep talking about it and don't stop.

    Depression is a disease. When you commit suicide it spreads like flu does when you sneeze.

    Talking about something so personal on such a public platform I am sure is very therapeutic and helpful. To anyone suffering from depression and having these horrible feelings: it will get better! you are worth it! So cliche but it's true.
