My Book


Many suicides left a mystery behind them in this world. Were they crazy? Were they evil? Or were they ill? I used to think they were simply stupid, until the day I became one of “them”. My name is Nancy Xia. At age 18 I made a desperate attempt to end my life. Miraculously I survived, but sustained a severe injury and will live with a physical disability for the rest of my life. Thirteen years later, however, I love life and I love to live. If I knew then what I know now about mental illness, my injury could have been prevented. Therefore, I feel profoundly compelled to share my story and my insights with you.
