    I was at a restaurant with my grandma

    and she threatened to send me to a mental institution or hospital or whatever for my "depression". Then I freaked out, ran back home and intended to jump from the 14th floor, but the window by the staircase wouldn't open, so I'm still alive. It wasn't half as dramatic as it...
