Via The Players Tribune:
I looked my mom in the eye, felt the handcuffs that locked me to my hospital bed tighten around my wrists, and I just had no words. Nothing. I went through all these different sentences in my head, trying to get them to make sense so I could spit out something. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Blank. I just wanted to sink into my bed and disappear beneath my gown.
But the handcuffs wouldn’t let me do anything.
So there I was, 22 years old. Twelve hours removed from cutting my own wrists. Five feet from my parents. Five minutes to spend with them.
And a lifetime to try to come to terms with what had happened.
It’s good to see Hurst was able to turn a difficult time in his life into something positive. The article will for sure help someone out who is going through some of the same things he has.
