R.I.P. Ned Vizzini.

Posted December 20th, 2013 at 04:38 PM by LouBerry

Some of you have probably read the book/ seen the movie, "It's Kind of a Funny Story". It's a book about a teenage boy who, after suffering from extreme depression, decides to take his life. Instead of following through, he calls a suicide hotline, and ends up checking into the Psych ward of a hospital, and the story follows him through his time and struggles there.

Author Ned Vizzini committed suicide last night. He was 32.

The way he wrote about depression in his book makes it painfully obvious that he knew first hand what it was all about.

I'd suffered from depression for two years before I read his book, and it changed my life. It helped me come to an understanding about why I felt the way I did, and that I wasn't crazy. It taught me that I CAN help myself, and that it's never too late.

The world just became a darker place.
