Two years today since we lost the beautiful Olivia.
Tuesday 3rd April 2012 was a night overcome with grief. Warren and Kellie Penpraze made the impossible decision to turn off their daughters life support after her attempted suicide the previous Thursday which resulted in their daughter being declared brain dead.
While being an inpatient at a Melbourne Psychiatric Clinic Olivia managed to hang herself while under the supervised care and watch of trained nurses and psychiatrists.
Olivia, their nineteen year old daughter had suffered from Psychotic Depression, Anxiety (generalised, social and mild separation), Borderline Personality Disorder, Dissociation Identity Disorder, EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified) and Body Dysmorphic Disorder for many years, which led to countless suicide attempts and many, many self-inflicted injuries.
What caused this, you ask? Years and years of bullying, little snide comments building up over the years, until the day it becomes too much, and turns a person’s own mind into their biggest enemy. Though the bullying did contribute to Olivia’s multiple diagnosis’ and low self-esteem, there are allegations of a trauma in her past that caused her to develop psychosis.
Olivia became so entrapped by her psychosis, so much so that, she became best friends with a young girl of her own imagination, who she named ‘Bree’. Bree was her companion, and suffered with Olivia. Olivia was often ‘attacked’ by the ‘evil people’, who, to us, are not real, but they were very real to Olivia. She often felt them trying to kill her, strangling her, and punching her, pinching at her skin and calling her fat, telling her to die.
Olivia heard the pleas of her friends, she heard them tell her she was beautiful and precious, but with the ‘evil people’ in tow, she could not believe them, could not fathom how she would ever be anything more than worthless. Towards the end, Olivia could not see the hundreds of messages of love, only the negative ones, real or imaginary. R.I.P beautiful, your evil people cant hurt you now

THERE IS SUCH A FUCKING PROBLEM WITH THE EDUCATION SYSTEM WHEN STUDENTS ARE IN TEARS EVERY SINGLE NIGHT AND WAKE UP EVERY SINGLE MORNING WANTING TO THROW UP AT THE THOUGHT OF GETTING OUT OF BED WHILE THINKING THAT THEY’D RATHER BE DEAD THAN GO TO SCHOOL
eleven thousand people can relate to this post. that’s not okay.
You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!
Why are the turtles crying
to feed the butterflies
Also, It is not because they are sad or being harassed. They actually have a gland that empties into their eyes that helps them get rid of too much salt that they collect living in the salty water. You can only see their tears when they are out of the water on land, and the tears also help keep sand out of the turtle’s eyes. The tears of the tortoises are an essential contribution of salt and minerals for the butterflies survival and the turtles work with them like a friendship & open their eyes for them to drink without hesitation.
