The likeliness of the guys of 3DG reading this is probably slim, but I know I'll never meet them. So I hope you guys do read this, I think it's something you all should know.
For me, the One-X album wasn't just an album. It was the one, and only thing in my life that made me feel like I wasn't alone. At the time the album came out, I was in a dark place.
I had no friends to talk to, my parents were either not in the picture, or more concerned with shoving pills down my throat rather then listening to what I was trying to tell them. I had tried to get rid of all the anger and pain by writing how I felt down, but my Mom took my journal and gave it to the doctors.
After that, I stopped writing. And the things I was writing about doing, the things that scared my Mom, the things I wasn't actually going to do, became reality. I started cutting myself, and attempted suicide quite a few times. I was spiraling downward,and for awhile there, it seemed like I'd never stop until I finally destroyed myself.
