  11. 11. Is it normal to miss my family? Am I a bad person for doing this to my family? How can I manage risk from my family? I think I regret my decision, did I do the right thing? I have ended up lonely, maybe it was better to stay at home? They are telling me to come home, they say my mother is sick? It’s my birthday and no one cares if I am dead or alive? My children don’t have their family anymore now, have I ruined their future? Am I shameful, I do so many things that would be seen as shameful by my family? Why me? Am I the only one to do this to my family? Am I cursed, is this kismet, am I mad and bad?
