Flash back to December

**** trigger warning *****

December. I think it’s officially my least favorite month now. On our birthday / anniversary I purposely overdosed on lithium. I calculated enough out to cause damage but not to kill myself.

I called 911 for myself. I spoke with a coworker who had to listen to me heave. My daughter saw me deteriorating in front of her tiny toddler eyes. My wife did the dishes, sobbing. I was dying.

I was taken to the hospital and monitored overnight. Tacycardic and disoriented. They pumped me full of fluids, 8 bags in total I think.

I was released the next day and have since been getting intensive help with my therapist and medication.

I’m currently in a mixed state, but school is going well and I’ve been sleeping the last two days so hope is on the horizon.


Return to the Blog

Well it’s been a while since I’ve updated last! Time to get back into the swing of things.

Ruby is a growing 14 month old now! A walking, almost talking, very much a toddler!


I recently started school at the University of Idaho. Majoring in Animal Sciences. Jessica is continuing her education at Washington State University and thriving.

It’s late so that’s all I have for now but I’ll leave you with some cute toddler photos!
