Without him I wouldn't have lived.

I attempted suicide when I was 16 after another fight with mom. I couldn't handle her emotional manipulation anymore. My dad sat with my in the hospital while I was seen by a doctor. I saw him cry and I saw him worry more than he ever had. In the 13 years since then I have thought about suicide several more times. Whenever I do I think back to that day and know that I could never do that to him again. If he hadn't been here for me when I needed him most I wouldn't still be here today. Without him I wouldn't have lived.
