along the way

"When I was 16, I started getting hysterical attacks. I don´t know why, or where they came from. People talked. But they talked before that, too. They didn´t like my fiancé and said that he was bad. Even the ones I liked, talked about me. Two times I went to a psychologist. After that my aunt said, I should read the quran - that it would help more. I didn´t go back to the doctor. The attacks stopped sometime ago. In the dark, I´m still afraid."
