It's me, Steffie! Yes, I'm still here. I've been here all the time. It's been a hard time, this is true, but things are much better now. I'm still confused, but I have such hopes. It is still difficult, but I'm coping now.
Yes, I had a real bad time, but I got a lot of help, and very important, I'm not taking any more pills. I threw the rest of them away two months ago. Now, I can be myself again, and not just my old egocentric self, in fact, part of a team, installing network equipment in homes and small businesses.
Yes, it's true! Love saved the day! Falling in love with Rachel has changed my life, she is so understanding. It has given me a real reason for living, as if there weren't any before. She has made me come alive. We have rented a small apartment, we are both working and earning money.
I am studying electronic engineering again, part-time in the evenings. I hope to get a better paid job. Rachel is pregnant and our son will be born in three months time. We want to buy a house.
I can tell you! Don't take the tablets! They just deaden the brain. Fall in love! Talk to other people! Enjoy life! Just get out of yourself, open the door and go outside!
