I have been depressed for almost three years, and it wasn't my friends who helped me Just over a year and a half ago. Your friend literally saved your life and I am happy she did that, I'm sure you deserve all the happiness in the world.
The person who saved me was my drama teacher. He, like your friend, makes me smile when I too thought I forgot how to, he has stopped me self harming and because of him I have been clean for just over six weeks. He is the reason I am recieving the help doctors think I need.
There need to be more people like him and just like your friend, because they are the people who will change so many lives.
