"I’m sure we all have dreams of leaving at some time in our lives, but when we reach the bottom, most of us go running home. Where else is there when we need help? Yet Ian didn’t run to his friends or his family. At this stage, even his parents had no idea of his misery. I don’t possess enough fingers to count the number of hurt people who believe they could have helped if only he had approached them. He must have felt an acute sense of loneliness, a disabling inability to communicate and surrender to treatment. How unhappy does one have to be before living seems worse than dying?"
