On Monday my friend Erin had a mental breakdown in class. She had not been sleeping the past couple days, was texting all of us strange things, and during her first class on Monday she just snapped. She was brought to the cities for treatment and I haven't heard anything since.
My other friend Sammy tried to commit suicide over the weekend. I don't know the full story, because I haven't really hung out with her since 1st semester. I do know that she suffers with depression.
Mental illness is a scary thing. Erin and Sammy are two bubbly blondes with amazing personalities. When you think "mental illness" they would never fit the stereotype. Mental illness can strike anyone. Please keep this sweet girls in your prayers.
