I did not like people before, they terrified me. All I wanted to do was hide from people, from life. In my thoughts I knew they were judging me negatively and watching my every move. So why would I leave my safe place, my home, when I knew I could be hurt by people.
When I was 44 and knew that suicide was my only hope from the dread I was living, my doctor suggested I go to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, CAMH, where I met my psychiatrist, Dr. Martin Katzman.
