When the antidepressants wore off, Koraly realised that her marriage was the problem.
When I was 20, I drove myself to the beach in the middle of winter to end my life. My first boyfriend who I met online when the internet was the new 90s craze had just ended it with me, and I had no real backbone to emotionally support myself.
