”It happened two nights in a row, I purchased a gun, not too long ago, and it’s in the safe, y’know? I started like, if I could go in there right now and end it all… cause I want it to be over like, but it’s in my head, you know?”

 “I said, ‘he’s grown, he’ll get over it.’ You know what I mean? I just didn’t care. I felt myself withdrawing. People were calling me [and] I wasn’t responding. I didn’t care.” She said.

However, she was able to talk to one of her friends who helped her get rid of the suicidal thoughts.
