My Story of Chronic Migraine & Suicidal Thoughts

Since reading the brave post about migraine and suicide that Kelly from Fly With Hope shared last year, I’ve been trying to gather the courage to share my own experiences with suicidal thoughts and migraine. I finally did so today in a post on entitled Migraine and Suicidal Thoughts: One Migraineur’s Story.

If you are experiencing similar despair, I hope it helps to know that you are not alone. Please don’t keep your pain, fear and sadness to yourself. If you don’t feel you can talk to someone you know, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at (800) 273-TALK.

  1. Kerrie,

    Just when I thought I couldn’t love you more, you have made it possible with this courageous share. I never knew about this, but I assumed, given your past writings about depression. And I remember that time two years ago; I had no idea that this is what was going on.

    I know there’s no guarantee that you’ve seen the last of these thoughts. I am just grateful you’ve made it through the ones that have come and gone. My personal, makeshift suicide hotline is always available to you.
