The story so far:
She had collapsed both mentally and physically one year ago, to the day; and was hospitalized for a week with a condition her doctor referred to as,’ broken heart syndrome’. Her therapy and medication provided little to no relief. Melanie found herself either completely numb or enveloped in dark depression. Being a people pleaser, a perfectionist, and an overworked nurse had created an emotional avalanche. Nothing brought her joy and everything amplified her pain. Until now; now she felt the warm glow of light flowing to her from the end of her very long tunnel.“I think a vacation is in order”, Melanie decided.
