Here is another comment I received recently from a young middle school student:

“Sumi, to be honest, you have been a HUGE inspiration to me. You came to my school a couple of times. Every single time, your story hit me. I have struggled with mental health problems for 5 years. OCD, suicide, panic disorder, etc. I’m slowly getting the help that I need. Hearing your story made me feel like I wasn’t alone… Like I’m not the only one who has to go to the door 7 times just to make sure that it’s locked. So thank you. I feel like your story and your life is a part of what has helped keep me alive today. Thank you”.

Comments like this make it all worthwhile. When I receive a comment like this, it reminds me that I need to continue my efforts so I can continue to make a difference in the lives of some people. I know how difficult it is to have to live with issues like these, but I am glad to note that this young man is getting the help he needs to move forward in a positive direction.
