Voices in her head

The voices in Elizabeth’s* head were getting worse, and the pain was steadily increasing. Even with her boyfriend Christopher there, she couldn’t keep the voices at bay.

Leonard*, a disabled veteran, was at home late one night when he was attacked. Although he was stabbed many times, he was able to shoot and kill the intruder.
