When David Loffert was 31, his life trajectory was impressive.
“I had published/presented 54 medical papers, published 6 peer reviewed medical papers, was contributing author on one book, owned and operated my own consulting company in respiratory medicine, developed a patent for respiratory devices, and was progressing successfully in my Ph.D.”
~ David Loffert
That year, David had a bout with migraine headaches and went to see a doctor about it. Over the next 9-10 years of his life, things went horribly wrong. Loffert writes,
“Shunned from my profession, disenchanted from my family and friends, and homeless, I fell into a deep depression. It was at this time that I wrote a suicide note and attempted to commit suicide. Over the next nine years I attempted suicide one more time, had 35 toxic overdoses, and 45 seizures. All of which brought me close to death each time.” (source)
