She was middle age, sitting up on a hospital bed. She was still like a statue and very disheveled. She was trying to appear strong but the flow of tears were a dead give away. Maybe her inability to control her emotions was compounding her despair and frustration. 

She was again admitted with another suicidal attempt. When we started to talk she opened up and said "I always felt the desire to end it all" she paused for a second like she was trying to find the right words then she said very softly,
"when I was 8, I used to take cold baths in winter and stand outside the house, hoping I may catch pneumonia!. 

Just imagine, 8 years old and so much pain to bear! 

"I love walking in the rain, 'cause no one knows I'm crying" 

Blog you later.

About the picture: I shot this inside Doge's Palace. To me it depicts despair.
