"Moral lesson is people don't care about your life struggles until you die. They'll rather see you dead than help you as needed. For everyone struggling with mental health illnesses, you're not alone and you'll be fine. Keep getting better and don't let the mindless and empty-headed people stop you from seeking help when you need it. Someone will be courageous enough to stand up for you."
