Just read an article in the New York Daily News about Kim coming out and announcing that she tried to commit suicide last year and I want to leave a message of support for her, here.
Never say die, Kim. Never! There are so many people in this world who understand what you have been through and admire your strength and are rooting for you and who want you to be happy.
Growing up poor and feeling hopeless time and time again re-wires us and it is so easy to revert back into that hopeless feeling when something bad happens that makes us depressed. It’s so hard to develop new patterns of thinking that don’t take us to those dark places but it can be done. I have been there, on the edge myself and it is hell, (was just posting about it here two days ago because I was finally feeling super hopeful, like I won’t ever feel like that again.) but those moments do happen and they are dark but remember you are loved in this world and people need you in this world. And you are strong and you are a fighter, Kim. That’s what I admire about you from afar, down here in fandom.
Choose joy, Kim. You deserve to be happy and healthy and making many more joyful memories with all of your family and friends.
Sisterhood and solidarity.
