I would be lying if I said I didn’t have suicidal ideations, especially at the frontend of the injury, especially when I am by myself at night. But, the thing that would keep triggering back is, “Who would take care of my kids?” “Who would love my kids more than me?” And, “how dare I think my life is written already?” And I think there was a point where I was beaten down, and beating was mostly done from me to me, where I was at the lowest of my low, and I thought, “I can’t get any lower.” And I think that’s when I started building myself up, you know. And I think it was at a point where I thought, you know, “it’s so much easier to call it a day.” But at the same time, you say to yourself, “You know, I haven’t been fully realized. I’m not being fair to me, and I am definitely not being fair to my kids.” And again, you know, “who would love them more than me?”
