Almost Lost My Little SisterI've always been afraid of losing my family. I had never a close relative die, and I consider this tremendous luck. I've had nightmares about my father dying, my brothers dying, my sister, my mother, my aunts, my grandparents, everyone. I love my family an extraordinary amount and couldn't imagine life without them.
When my little sister was 17, she tried to kill herself by swallowing a bottle of sleeping pills. She had been depressed for a long time and no one had really caught it. We all felt guilty, wondering if we had done anything to aggravate her condition. I freaked out, and moved back into my parents house for a while, sharing a room with her for the first time since I was 18. She's doing much better now, and she even works with me in my bakery. I hope I'm doing the right thing for her.
