Today, the last thing she said to me is, "You have to check out this neat site called Makes Me Think..." just as a drunk driver ran a red light and smashed into my passenger-side door where she was sitting. Now I'm here in the ER, watching a machine breathe for her, and hoping she gets to finish telling me her story. MMT

Today, I've had lethal kidney problems since I was a baby. I had a daughter and I had trouble losing the weight. People call me "fat" every day. I'm 5 ft and 170 pounds. They don't know the pills I take to keep myself from needing a transplant or dialysis make me gain weight. I'm sorry I'm not skinny. MMT

Today, with those brown eyes closing, all the stars disappeared from my sky. I stay here crying and looking at the only picture I've got. My heart is skinned and my mind is numb. I just hoped I'll be able to tell her that I love her. That I am sorry. I just hoped she would come at me one day. I was just a bully to her, and she was just the world to me. Now I know that she is in a here in a hospital room dying. And I am dying inside too. MMT

Today, with my grandfather dying in the next room, my grandmother told me, "Sometimes I just break down and cry for hours non-stop, but I'll never let him see it.

Today, I returned home after a month of international travel to find out that my close friend attempted suicide last week when I was gone. I had been helping her through her depression for the past year. And she was making so much progress. Now I am sitting here in the ICU wondering if I could have made a difference if I was around.

Today, the bully who has picked on me at school every day for the past three years – a kid who has made me cry more times than I can count – killed himself. His final tweet from last night reads, “I’m the weakest one of them all. Always have been. Sorry for everything.” MMT
