Why suicide and cutting?
I decided to write about depression and cutting because it’s something very close to my heart. I feel that the awareness of these disorders needs to be more. Therefore, with my series I am trying to create more awareness.
One thing you learned along the way?
I’ve noticed how little some people know about depression and the reasons why one decides to cut. Most of the time when a person cuts, it’s not at all about suicide. It’s about control and having a way to cope with their lives.
Something few people know about you?
There’s not a lot going on that few people know. I’m an open book. I’m straight and have let people in. But what I can say is that I hate spiders and bees. Especially walking through a spider web.
