Daniel Fenech had the world at his feet.
From the outside, life looked great.
Inside, his mind was causing pain and there was a lot of self hatred and confusion.
Later in the teenage years, Daniel started to blow up at the little things and get highly frustrated as his mind got foggy.
At the age of 20, he was on the cusp of ending his life when he was torn with the decision to leave this world and break his parents or he could live on and just be in emotional pain forever.
He chose the emotional pain and called lifeline. A 45 minute phone call which saved his life.
