Why I won’t be writing about suicide

I did start to write about suicide given recent events and the amount of experts that suddenly sprung up over night but quickly came to the conclusion that it was something I shouldn’t and wouldn’t be doing.

I attempted suicide when I was a teenager and frequently have very strong suicidal feelings when I have violent and sudden mood swings.  When I began to write I realised that the feelings are too close to the surface for me to be able to approach the subject in a healthy manner.

So, for the forseeable future, I won’t be writing about suicide. I need to be safe.
