I Shot Myself In The Head - And Survived | TRULY

  • SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj A MAN who shot himself in the face astonishingly survived with barely a scar on his face. Every year on 2 September, Kevin Amundson holds a party; there’s food, drink, laughter and music; family and friends bring presents but it’s not a birthday celebration, it’s Kevin’s ‘miracle day’ party. Four years ago Kevin tried to kill himself by shooting himself in the head. Doctors gave Kevin a 50% chance of survival. Even when they knew he wouldn’t die they still predicted Kevin would have mobility and speech problems the rest of his life; but again Kevin surprised everyone by learning to walk and talk again. Apart from a scar running through his hairline, to look at Kevin, now 24, it would be hard to believe just four years ago he had blasted a bullet through his face; aside from his physical recovery, Kevin’s suicide attempt also led to him finally receiving an official diagnosis and treatment for depression.

    I'm glad this guy is doing well and recovered great. just a side note, i'm not sure how id feel about a "miracle day" party, id feel really weird and awkward going over to everyone and my neighbors and being like "hey are you coming to the party?" "what party? oh its a party to celebrate the fact that my suicide attempt wasn't successful and im still here." Not hating on it at all, just feel like that would be really strange.

    Surely if he called 911 he was holding on to a hope of survival
    Or was he just trying to make sure the theories of a murder were eliminated

    And now it's time to find out your life purpose. You obviously have some important things to do here gentleman.
    Look up "dark night of the soul" and how to deal with depression (metaphysical cause) instead of taking prozac your whole life and get to work. You are needed.
    Contact a medium to talk to your higher self. It will help you tremendously.

    I am glad that as soon as I got my first panic attack 4 years ago, that my mom did everything it takes to help me. Went to the psychiatric hospital ER and got diagnosed generalized anxiety. For two years, I could barely put a foot outside without having a panic attack. I would get one every morning before school, my mom would cry in her car after I could finally go inside the school with the student support staffs ( I don't know the English terms, might not even exist outside of Canada). Then they would be the one trying to calm me down ( 50+mins in the panic attack) and sometime would send me back home because they couldn't help at all. My teachers were very sweet, as well as the school staff, that would lead me to the supports offices. Then I went better, then it got worse. Suicidal toughts, depression... I just wanted to give up on everything. I dropped out of high school, I just wanted to disappear. My mom would try everything to put a smile on my face and make me laugh. Trying to take me out in calm places that I used to like... I am now starting to get better. And that's because of my mom and my closest friends that I consider sisters. I now have a job, two days a week, with an amazing boss.
    It does get better. I guess it depends all on your circles. Get away from toxic people, do things you like to get your mind of things. Go see a doctor and don't be afraid to take meds if you feel like you need it. You are not forced to take them, but sometime it is what is going to give you a boost for your day. I send positive energy and love to any who needs it. There is someone that loves you, and you will get out of it. If you feel in danger by yourself, there are free suicide/crisis hotlines and 911 to call. Don't be afraid to talk about your problems to loved ones you trust. Don't stay silent.
