Cinco De Gato All the comments about how "stupid" her reasons were.... I haven't been a teenager for a long time, but during that time period, and parts of my 20s, there have been times that relationship struggles seemed life shattering and I felt worthless and pointless and just wanted the emotional pain to end. That on top of chronic physical pain.

Before you say "just a breakup" or "just a boy" or that what drove her to attempt suicide was "stupid", take a damn second and think. She obviously knows now that wow that wasn't worth it, wow I'm so lucky to be here. She's grateful. That's what it took for her to have a radical paradigm shift and appreciate every minute.

She feels awful for how it has affected her family. She says so. Suicide is an epidemic. Instead of being demeaning and belittling and discounting the emotional devastation that breakups and other relationship struggles can induce, maybe use empathy and something like wow I'm amazed at her strength and hopefully anyone who sees her story who is contemplating suicide sees a reason to live. Better yet, anyone feeling judgmental reflecting on their own loved ones and making sure to look for signs of depression and other mental health conditions. Stop the stigma. At that time, she made an impulse decision. It's heartbreaking. But it's something that has changed her and everyone around her. We all have our unique journey. Discounting her pain that drove her to attempt to take her own life is part of the problem. Never discount someone's feelings. Yes it hurts like hell. Yes it might feel like right now, nothing will ever be good again. Right now your heart is broken and you feel complete despair. But tomorrow? A week from now? A year? You really do survive heartbreak! Reach out. Ask for help. Don't shame people. Share love and support.

What an inspirational comeback story and how amazing that someone was a donor, willing in life to commit to donating organs for others in death, so they could live. A comeback story for Katie where she has a very different life than originally planned. But she's gonna live it to the fullest.

Spread love and hope ♥️
