Somewhat, you've almost made me cry in front of my class. They are editing their papers, so thank goodness their attention is not on me.
I'm truly beginning to see how destitute a suicidal person can feel, and how thoughts of others are not necessarily part of their process. I've had years of therapy and they could never paint this picture for me.
But, now of course, I've also got the image of them trying to reach out to me, and I simply missed it. It terrifies me to think that it all could have been different if I just got the phone call.
