The next couple days were quick. In a matter of hours, Ryan was arrested for Domestic Violence and Assault. Although he was in jail, I was still afraid he would come after me. I couldn't sleep. I couldn't eat. Everyone was worried. They had to start injecting protein into an IV so I wouldn't pass out.

After a week, my doctor said I was stable enough to get transferred upstairs to the psych ward. Once I was there for a week or so they would do yet another assessment and decide whether it was safe for me to go home. When my parents finished talking to the doctor in the hall, I could hear them arguing. Of course it was about me, that's the only thing they've done since I got here.

"How could she not be safe at home? I thought we were good parents" my father said angrily.

"I thought so too but she tried killing herself once, how do we know she won't try again?" I could hear the exhaustion in her voice.

"I've done the best I could to support my family. I tried protecting her for 16 years. I'm obviously not able to protect her anymore. So what do we do now? I can't do this again, Marie."

Daddy, please don't leave me. I need you. Please. I thought to myself.
