I used to beg my parents so that they won’t send me to school. It was hard! I remember, one day, the teachers yelled at me for no reason and did not let me go home for a while. I just couldn’t feel my body in that room. They knew about my depression and still, did not allow me to leave. After a while, when I had completely given up, they sent me back home. After that incident, my mother left her job and helped me heal.”
