Hold On, Read for free (x)
It was just before New years when I had planned to kill myself. I had two stress-related breakdowns last year. I had lost a close friend in an accident and was not coping with the grief. At Christmas, I felt like an outsider to the world. I had nobody to celebrate with and nothing to celebrate about. I was done.
But just as I was at the end, a miracle occured. I found this book. It was by complete chance that I decided to read it and I could not be more grateful that I did. The whole story spoke to me, as if it were written for me. The protagonist was going through issues similar to mine and watching her descend into utter madness reminded me of myself. The babble in her mind matched my own and it scared me to see my illness on paper basically.
But when I finished it, I felt different. I felt stronger, more open. I didn’t want to leave this world yet, I didn’t want to give up so early. So here I am, in 2013, and I feel better than I have in years. This book truly gave me hope, it gave me a new life :)
