That season turned out to be my best one out of all. I was named first team all league, first team all miami valley and team MVP. A few days after it had ended I went to the hospital for my surgery. Again, I had to miss days of school for this. I missed days for doctors appointments and therapy.

Lisa had written the article I Survived Postpartum Depression, But It Never Left Me, discussing her first hand experience with postpartum depression, how it still affects her years later, and the importance of understanding that it may not leave. After her son’s birth, instead of joy, she felt something she had never felt before. For almost two years after her son was born, Romeo had the horrible feeling that she was living to survive and nothing more (Romeo). Lisa says, “ I was supposedly no longer fighting off postpartum depression that matters. What came next—what, even now that my sons are 21 and 17, persists—are days and nights and long worrisome moments of everyday life” (Romeo).

When I first moved to Mexico I was 15 years old; I had everything in D.R, friends, family, and sport, a life I really enjoyed and was really happy with it.

When I reached my teenage years I realized that it was because they were immigrants to this country and took whatever job opportunity they could find. I also came to realize that I was an immigrant, and that life was tougher for not having the proper documentation. This year I fell into the biggest hole of my life. I learned that I was not going to get financial aid because of my legal status and my mother was also diagnosed with a tumer last month.

And he was having an incredible time, the best of his life! Without me.

A loser. For a while drinking, partying, and hooking up with random guys had been his life. At some point he got to work as a truck driver, but he had given up on that after half an year.
