It all came crashing down on March 12, 1998. My ex-fiance and I had a horrible, nightmarish fight and broke off our engagement. It was two months and four days before we were supposed to say, “I do.” It was one of the worst days of my life. I felt like I was in a black hole and that I would never get out. I tried to take my life that night. I had no idea how I would ever feel better. Ever. I was so ashamed, embarrassed, felt like such huge failure and had no idea what to do. I felt so alone.
