A week after my grandfather 's wake I received a letter saying “don 't ever speak to me again,” a devastating blow from my best friend of eight years. A million thoughts raced through my head and I immediately embarked on the five stages of grief, bypassing denial, anger, and bargaining because I am an overachiever.

This is the depression where suicide begins looking like a good option and then it 's time to get help.

I still saw my dad regularly and my mom was always there to help me with homework at night, so the separation had caused no noticeable shift in my daily routine. Unlike most children in my same situation, my life was irrefutably peaceful.
