Loss of Loved One
I started to try killing myself at age 16. I felt like my heart stopped when my grandma died. I couldn't deal with it. I went to the kitchen and got the knife. I was aiming it at my arm and was cutting myself. When I was aiming it at my chest, my dad caught me. He knew I was going through a rough time. He gave me a hug and told me,"calm down sweetie." It made me feel better when he told me that. I wouldn't be here if he wasn't there with me.
My dad helps me with rough times. Also if you read the story, "Abused at 3." That's me. I'm doing great now. But, my dad still makes sure im ok. I don't attempt suicide anymore. im doing great.
