Sometimes, I want to die (Ep. 11)
What happens when someone explores suicidal thoughts while being recorded, before having a clear idea of what's happening? This is me, Damian Oleksiuk, having suicidal thoughts and recording my way through them. This is not a cry for help, but more meant for a way to talk through, understand, explore, and express a tough state of mind while actually being in it. As always, I'm not a medical professional - I don't know what you should do. This is not meant as a substitute for seeking official medical treatment. For those seeking help, google "crisis hotline" or call the national suicide prevention hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
