On her brother:
“Jada was the first person who got me to go to therapy. I was really having problems dealing with the loss. I didnt feel. It was like I had a circuit breaker. When I felt any emotion too much, whether it was joy, fear, love, it would turn right o. So that was scar- ing me. I thought I was about to live my life not living my life. I was doing things to numb whatever was left or looking for little rushes of some sort. Going through the motions, doing my job, showing up for work but not feeling.”
