I joined Medium under a pen name mainly to write about mental health issues and share my own experience with depression and suicide — topics that are still taboo in our society. So much so that I feel pressured to hide my identity from my working colleagues, friends, and family members.
Even my family doctor who used to be a close friend wanted to transfer my file to another doctor after finding out I attempted to commit suicide.
Mental health, depression, and suicide touch everybody — personally, or through a friend, a family member, or a colleague. Why is it still taboo?
You could buy me a coffee… It would be a nice pat on the back!
