Hi, My name is Holley Robison, and I am very suicidal.
That's how I saw myself for years. I hated myself, I had therapeutic, melodramatic writing sessions where I'd end up ripping and screaming my feelings. I would cut myself, rather badly.
I started taking therapy, and my mental health seriously in 2015. It was something that scared the living crap out of me. I didn't think it would work, I thought I was way too damaged.
I realized, as I started to open up to my therapist, that I would always make her laugh. Like a lot. She'd tell me the things that I said showed her that no matter what I thought, I had a very unique, and fun outlook on life. At the time I didn't believe her.
I am a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes. I love the original stories, I love the movies with Robert Downey Jr, and other various Actors (I don't think I've seen them all, but a good amount of them) I love the series on BBC with Benedict Cumberbatch, and the 'Americanized' version 'Elementary'
When I heard this line, I busted up laughing. It made me smile so much! Anyone who has been suicidal knows how little you want to make actual food when in those states. I actually ate A LOT of fries (Chips) when I was super depressed.
I guess through this campaign I want people to know to laugh. I know the world can seem really dark and scary, and the dark cloud of depression seems endless. But I also know that that cloud has an end, I know cause I have reached it.
