“Two years ago I left church. I left a job, a community of people and many friendships. This past week I spent the night in the hospital for about 15 hours on suicide watch. These 15 hours were the first time in a while I was disconnected from the world, but also the first time I felt at peace and could think clearly. I wrestled trying to figure out what my next steps were once I got out. I used to be very open about my faith but when I left church I started to push it down. Three days after getting out of the hospital I decided I wanted to take actions and get back to a place of happiness with myself, but also with God.” He further added:
