Well,last year,in October,I was so sick of being ridiculed,bein left out,and picked on at skool,I became very depressed.And I wanted 2 die.
So,I started cutting,and slittin my writs.

Then one day,when I was on youtube,I saw a video for "Our Lady of Sorrows".
And then I fell in love with that song.
It made me feel like sum1 was tellin me I'm a nice kid,and I shouldn't die.
Then,I looked up sum more MCR songs,and found "Head First For Halos",and "Cemetery Drive".
After I heard those 2 songs,I started crying.
Cuz I found a band that has songs that relate 2 me,my life,how I feel,and where the people in the band were outcasts,like me.And after listening 2 "Head First for Halos",and looking up the meaning,I realized that I shouldn't die at such a young age(The meaning was not 2 commit suicide,and when I cut,I tried 2 cut deep enough that I would die).
I felt like MCR was sending me a message,2 not take peoples shit("Our Lady of Sorrows"),and my life iz worth sumthin.
And I shouldn't be afraid of bein diffrent.
I became a MCR fan.
MCR saved me from a foolish thing(cutting),got me out of depression,and saved me.
Their music got me 2 stop cutting.

Aww. so glad you have.

since i was about 4 or 5 i have been picked on or whatever you call it, sometimes physically though more often than not mentally, practically everyday until i was 15/16. inside it destroyed me.

at the age of 14 or 15 i started to cut myself. around seventeen starving myself. i heard a few MCR songs and thought they were cool but nothing to really get me to think wow.

then when the black parade came out and i saw all these interviews with gerrard and the band. i thought look theres a guy here, whose felt like they're nothing, been told the'yr nothing, believed, been depressed, down, suicidal, felt as though they've messed up and he's got out of it and done something. maybe i could to??

i bought all 3 albums upon release, looked into their songs unravelled the meanings. i had something to relate to. i had proof that i could become something.

a few times i have come very close to commiting suicide and id put a song on and id know id be ok. in march i went to see them live, i had held on at my lowest points just because i knew id be seeing them soon. my heroes, my idols, feet awat from myself. knowing theyl never no what theyv done for me but in some way comin would show my appreciation.

i went to that concert and passed out as i hadnt eaten, they wanted me to leave the arena as i was severly dizzy and not well from not eating much for days. i stayed and looked down at them and i realised that i could do it. but at the same time thought ill never see this again, can i hold on.

i got tickets to go see them in november. and i cant wait to see them again, be there to show my appreciation.

im trying to sort myself out, im still depressed, and have trouble with my eating occasionally and i do still self harm. but i'll get there just like gerrard did. i will do something great, i just have to figure out what that is.

people say gerrard is leading a cult and he is. a cult of people he has saved not destroyed as the papers claims.

it may not seem much and it may seem over the top. but to me its true and i forever am in his debt.

[btw i no i say gerrard but i credit the whole band its jsut gerard sings the words u here its nt that ive forgotten my chemical romance isnt just gerrard. bt he has been thru so much, more than any of us cud possibly understand]

I had these 2 "friends",they would try 2 kill me.
Sum times,I wouldn't fight at them,cuz I wanted 2 be dead(I said I was very depressed in October,but,I was still depressed b4 then.In October,my depression got worse).
The would try 2 poison me,cut me,and I would sumtime want them 2 carry on w/ what they were doin.

aww hun, you've been through so much. but least we know we can get through it and everything and let it not hold us back.

Gee saved so many lives which is why it really annoyed me saying about how they were tryna kill the followers and they promoted stff. i always think twice when i want to kill myself now coz wen he made that speech saying pissing your life away on suicide is bullshit its true, so true. and started to eat since i found the quote it doesnt matter what size you are. and they're gfs are all so normal they nt like the perfect playboy girls they are just so ordinary. they arent, ever contradictiory to themselves.

Wow this proves they actually do save lives, as people are like "Well you are an idiot, they didnt save your life" If you get what i mean, and it shows, as it happens to so many peoplel that they do make a difference. SUCK ON THAT CHRIS!!

And remember one of the MCRmy mottos; "MCR didnt save my life, they made it!!!"

wow.you all have heart-touching stories.
*snif*
me its nowhere so touching or uplifting(yes,these are uplifting stories). my dad's been putting a lot of pressure on me since i'm 9.he wants me to go into medical studies,and become either a psychologist or a GP.Even though i dont live with him he controls my grades and stuff,and he expects me to be an A grade student.which is something i'm not.when i get,say,a B+ or A- hes not content with me.and so,the pressure caved in.in my old school i didnt really fit in,i got bullied at bording school,the girls in the dorms stole my stuff(once they took around a 100 dollars,or like 70 euros,and for me that was a lot.

i gradually got sick of the life i was leading,the bullying,being chavvied along into depression.i started to find my self skinny and ugly,so i tried to put on weight.but it all went down the toilet anyway.

one day i was in the showers and i told myself that i wanted to end my life.(god this is getting really melodramatic).so i started to slit the arterys in my feet,so that nobody could guess what i was up to.it got to be weekly,and then i came across a blog while i was at home, talking about my chemical romance,how there music helped people,ect...i listened to "im not okay","the ghost of you" and "vampires will never hurt you",and in the end i was with them completly,i bought their first album and it helped me with so many things,they made me realize how much i loved life.

i guess mcr was my lifeline.
I LOVE LIFE!!!!!!!!

i told my mom about the bullying,and she made me change school,taking care to tell the head exactely why i was changing,i went to the local school,and i made loads of friends,i went along with my grades as i gradually became more confident...and now i cant wait to go to a concert,just to see them,and if possible,pass the message about how many lives they saved,mine included.

YAY FOR MCR AND THEIR INCREDIBLE TALENTS!

im so going to japan in the future..
and im also really happy for both disenchanted and mychem for getting through this too.

now,who's for nachos?
