First time I had been hospitalized
First time I spoke to my father in 5 years.
First time I spoke to my aunt in 5 years.
First time I spoke to my cousin in more than 10 years.
First time I ever feel so depressed that I didn’t want to live anymore thinking that I have had a pretty good life so far.
First time that I have to go see a therapist.

I got much love and concern from many and am grateful for knowing that if I didn’t make it, at least my funeral won’t be without people.
