Above and Beyond the task

Author Lana Lin

When I was 15, I was hospitalized for a week for attempted suicide. I spent that week eating sweets and trying to reassure my mother who was in all states. I did not expect  visitors because my family had preferred to keep the #shame secret. On the other hand, they had to prevent college and suddenly my English teacher came to visit me. This visit made me cry a lot. She took me in her arms, listened to me and did not judge me. It was all I needed at the time.
