Alex is Alive

hi, I'm Ella, Alex's friend. Alex is alive but is currently in hospital. October 22nd Alex decided to take her own life in her own home. She expected to be home alone the entire day as her parents and older brother were at work. She compiled a series of letters to her dearest loved ones, a few contained last minute wishes that she wanted done after she passed. I was one of them. I was given a list of passwords and log in names, and was instructed to "tell them I did love them." She then proceeded to swallow triple the dose of sleeping pills, and also slit her wrists vertically. She lay down in bed "so I can sleep forever." Her brother returned home early as he had been given the afternoon off, and discovered Alex unconscious in her bed. He thought she was sleeping until he saw the blood stained sheets. He called the ambulance and Alex was rushed to hospital, and was saved. She is expected to remain in hospital for two weeks, but wishes me to send you all her love and appreciation for commenting on her last post. She cried when I read her your amazing comments, and was amazed that "someone bothered to save me, someone actually tried."
Personally, I would like to thank you all so much for giving my friend the love and attention she deserves. It is great to see people willing to help others even if they do not know them personally and I am pleased that Alex has that. She says that she will try to personally post a thank you message as soon as she can.
Thank you xx


  1. I am so glad you are okay, Alex. So, so glad. I know that the next step will not be easy. But you will learn to fight your demons and you will conquer them. I know you will be okay. You have every ounce of my support. Like I said in my comment on your previous post, after reading your blog for so long I've truly come to care about you as a person. I want the best for you and I hope you get it. Take care, love.

  2. Alex I am so so glad that you are alive and okay. I will be here to support you when you return from hospital, because like miss Alisha, I've always read your blog and I really care about you.
    Take care Alex
