This is a real story.
In The Burn Journals, Runyon describes that devastating suicide try and his restoration over the next yr. he is taking us into the Burn Unit in a children's clinic and during painful burn care and skin-grafting tactics. Then to a rehabilitation health center, for in depth actual, occupational, and mental treatment. after which ultimately again domestic, to the scary prospect of getting into excessive school.
