Donna Darkwolf's Farewell Note

She wrote me a very long letter. This note was one that was left for the authorities to find.

My dearest Franco

I feel certain that I am going mad again. We can't go through another of those terrible times. And I shan't recover this time. I do not want to be admitted to a psych ward again where the medication affects my moods even more and the doctor’s do not really care in our overburdened state system. And you know how terrifying it is in there. I have been through too many doctors. I don’t care anymore.

Between my mania and deep dips I am unable to creatively use words much less them string them together. My words are as capricious as my mind. After my stroke, my eye problems, inability to judge distance and drive, agoraphobia, and ongoing as well as pending health problems, I don’t want to do it anymore. My friends do not know how to handle me anymore, so most avoid me.

I can't fight it anymore. I don’t want to put you through this anymore. So I am doing what seems the best thing to do. You have given me the greatest possible happiness. You have been in every way all that anyone could be. I don't think two people could have been happier until this terrible disease came.

What I want to say is I owe all the happiness of my life to you. You have been entirely patient with me, protective and loyal. I want to say that — everybody knows it. If anybody could have saved me it would have been you. Everything has gone from me but the certainty of your goodness.

Roma Victor! (Donna's much-loved Battle-Cry, from one of her favorite movies: "Gladiator")
Your Donna Strega
