The Silent Sufferer
One brief moment in time has the ability to alter everything you thought you knew about life. In the blink of an eye, my whole world was thrown off course. No one escapes life without obstacles to overcome. Sometimes these obstacles are outside of our control, and sometimes they are battles within ourselves. This story is my personal journey of how my father’s suicide led me down a path of destruction. As a young teen, I was not able to cope with the challenges that were facing me: medical issues, alcohol, death, and an uphill battle with suicidal ideations. This story will have you laughing while reliving your teenage years and crying as you go through my personal pain.
