    Madame Bovary […] in the depths of her soul,

    she was waiting for something to happen. Like a sailor in distress, she kept scanning the solitude of her life with anxious eyes, straining to sight some far-off white sail in the mists of the horizon. She did not know how it would come to her, what wind would bring it to her...

    So lost. Where do I go from here?

    Nothing in my life gives me happiness anymore. I’m completely numb. I can’t feel anything. And when I do? It’s only ever temporary. Sometimes I feel it would better to just disappear. Most of the time I want to. But I know what that would do to my parents. They...
