I have struggled with depression ever since I was
ten years old. It had crippled me emotionally. I
was 27 years old, no college degree, no job, and no
willdo live. I decided to kill myself after Christmas.
And then my sister' s boyfriend loaned me these
comics. Superman is dying of radiation poisoning
and is trying to complete all of his tasks before
he dies, but he the time to save amoung
girl who is about to jump overbuilding.
I cried for hours after reading this. I identified with
that girl so much, and I could almost hear Superman
telling me that I' m stronger than I think.
Now, every time my depression starts to rear its
ugly head, Must repeat his words and imagine him
hugging me when I' m standing on the edge. It works
better than any medication or therapy I' ever had.
Now I' m in college and the top of my class. I have
friends. I have a life. And I don' t aare that he' s a
fictional comic book character. He still saved me.
Mir Superman saved my life.
