I thought that he was obligated to help me, but I was mistaken. I was not feeling happy, or free or full. I almost wanted to end my life, as I felt myself absolutely empty. I felt that something was missing inside me. At that time, my grandmother was dying because of a horrible illness that had been accompanying...
