When my shoulders feel soo heavy and the room suffocating and like nothing is going to work, I think to myself of everything I would miss out on if I died, the food, smiling with family, places I am yet to see and I definitely can't stop pushing #SuicideNoBeSolution

My name is OLAMIDE and I was struck with polio at the tender age of a year. Growing up was challenging as I couldn't move around like others do. I used to be depressed about my future as I felt worthless letting people help me do everything for me

Suicide is not an option it's just an easy way out. Look for something that will bring out that spark of life in you because life has so much to offer, look to add to it instead of removing from it. #SuicideNoBeSolution #faceyourfear pic.twitter.com/4ID8zFWLkE
