My 1st wife, actress Mary Kay Bergman, suffered in secret until 20 years-ago today when she took her own life. She must have believed her suicide would end her suffering. She was wrong… she merely passed it on to me. Thankfully, after years of struggle, I’ve survived to truly enjoy life again. Sadly, many like me are not so lucky. Mary Kay believed that she was alone, that no one could understand what she was going though, and that no one could understand her pain and suffering. Again, she was wrong.
And so, on this day I once again make this plea to anyone who is suffering in silence from mental pain, depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorders, etc… you are NOT alone. People do understand what you are going through. There IS help. If you are considering suicide your pain will not end, it will only be passed on to those who love you most. Help is waiting. Speak out. Let us help you choose life. Please share.
