I can’t sleep on the bed anymore when my children are suffering in jail. I can’t eat. I wake up in the middle of the night, gripped by a fear of the next thing that could go wrong,” she explained.
She even said that she even had suicidal thoughts in the past but therapy helped her and she decided to stay strong for her family.
