Their passing hit hard in a way that I still can’t quite understand because in many ways the relationship was already dead, but the feeling of a missed opportunity to fix it is something you can’t really shake…and that sense of finality, never being able to change what happened, is something that will probably always stay with me.

After things finally came to a halt, I fully recovered from my illness. For the first time in over a year, I had the I felt like I was starting to heal at the both mentally and physically.
