Twenty-one years ago, Dad killed himself.

I used to be ashamed of this life-changing event in my life. Not anymore. I had to write about his suicide in my book because it has shaped who I am, both positively and negatively. My dad's death resulted from the disease of depression, one that I have struggled with and continue to be treated for. With my struggles, though, I think I am stronger, even when I don't feel like it. I am a survivor of suicide.
