BC-SOF--HALEY’S HOPE

The darkness rolls in like an invisible fog, draping over every thought, compounding until the internal agony becomes unbearable. Haley Harrison built a facade to mask its clutches, swallowing the mental torment to avoid any appearance of weakness. A senior softball player at Idaho State, she had been taught all her life to be mentally strong, to tamp down vulnerabilities. Three times the darkness — and the weight of trying to suppress it — overwhelmed Harrison. Her exhausted mind saw no way out except through the bottom of a pill bottle. With Harrison’s third suicide attempt came an escape route. She got a proper diagnosis, not just the “you’re depressed” she heard so many times. She received the help, the medication she needed to avoid following the path her brother took more than a decade ago. By John Marshall. SENT: 1443 words. With AP Photos.
