Yeah hospitals don't like telling what happens in their mental health units.
Generally, theres therapy work sheets, crap food, amazing movies, more therapy, a teacher, group therapy, passes to get out for a day or so, and rules. Tons of rules. No sharp things, no chemicals in your room, no bath or shower, keys are kept in a locked office, at least three locks to get out, and a big fence in the place you can go out in.
And they don't pump stomachs anymore, they give you charcole which tastes exactly how it sounds.
And that was amazing, by the way.

That was heart-breaking and beautiful. It was devastating to see Kurt in denial over Burt's death. I'm so glad Blaine stayed with him. I knew there was a reason I liked that boy! XD Really though, it was a touching story and would even be great if there was a longer section about his recovery. -u-
Seriously, fantastic job!

This is really, really good, and incredibly heart-wrenching.
I think you should add clearer trigger warnings though. You said mentions of suicide, but maybe add "trigger warning: attempted suicide" to the summary? I love the story, but I can see it being potentially triggering for people who might actually be going through this stuff.

I was addicted to self-harm for years, it was never so bad that I had to be hospitalized, but it was not nice. If only I had had someone like Blaine at the time to reach through to me... but I got through it. I don't cut myself anymore, but Glee is helping me daily. "Defying Gravity" is my new anthem, because I've been bullied at school and because of having Asperger syndrome, I have my struggled. But "I'm through accepting limits 'cause someone says they're so" - I'm not backing down. I'm not gonna end up like Kurt almost did. I was gawking throughout this story and was SO relieved when Blaine finally reached through to him. I can easily picture Blaine as the comforting man who is always there to help and love, no matter what... heh, funny..reminds me of my boyfriend :) Thank you for writing this gripping story with a thankfully happy ending.

Well, FUCK me.
I genuinely don't know the last time I cried that hard for that long. You wrote that fabulously and you really captured the emotion perfectly.
And Damn you for making me weep ;)

Great story, the only thing that seemed completely unrealistic was that they didn't say I love you for 2 years, especially with kurt needing to ve reassured, trying to heal from the loss of the 2 people who loved him most, and feeling unlovable because Karosky made him feel disgusting. I think "I love you's" would be EXTREMELY important. But loved the story otherwise...good writing, interesting twist w/ burt being gone.

This was really great! There were a few grammar issues j noticed- like near the end, "mums" was supposed to have an apostrophe. However, these were easy to look over ad they didn't really disrupt the story. As for any inaccuracies- who cares? It's your story... I really liked the ending. It's so sweet and hopeful. I really loved reading this. Awesome story :)

Currently crying my eyes out. I'm glad you didn't let Kurt die (:
But yes, I really liked this!

Wonderful story. Glad Kurt was Saved.

I'm just sitting here, crying, but smiling. The ending was so beautiful, and I'm so glad he pulled out of it.
Reading about Kurt like this was depressing. You made it so beautiful though, you're an amazing author. When I read that Burt was dead I gasped out loud, and I felt a cold little shiver go down my back.
Really, beautiful writing, beautiful, deep, story.

This was so beautiful. I have a bad past with self harm and suicidal thoughts and recently I've been thinking about it again. That song that you chose though made me cry for a while and remember why im stopped and why im still here. It fit so right with this story too. It so right with what Kurt must have felt. This was so well writen, it had perfect emotion and it was very believable. I loved this piece darling :)
