Sample Chapter


Not being able to do what I wanted to do upset me so much that I just wanted to die. I went into the bathroom with razor in hand to end my life. I held my wrist out and tried to slice it with the sharp razor. Owwwww! It hurt like hell. I didn’t like the pain, but I tried another slice. Owwww! Owwww! I was jumping up and down. Nope, forget it.  I ran my wrist under some cold water, wiped off the blood, and thought to myself, How does anyone do this? My cuts were not deep at all, but enough to leave marks that looked like scratches. I never gave it another thought.
