In a fabricated world everything written herein is what was seen through my eyes. These writings hopefully reveal not all people with addiction and mental health issues are a ‘waste of space’. Most are simply trying to make the best of traumatic experiences that leave people asking: why me? I own my own story in its entirety. I offer no proof, nor have any inclination to, other than what is provided in these writings. Those who disagree – good for you! Such is the diversity, adversity and absurdity of life. You have your own eyes and wits. Use them as you see fit.
Because we are all characters in the play of life, those who attach themselves to the characters herein do so at their own risk. Only they know the lie or truth of such attachments.
All names are changed – save my own -to protect the confidentiality of others. Any reference to persons living, dead, diseased, disabled, cryogenic, zombie or unborn is incidental, but hopefully insightful and inspirational. Either way it is not meant to take away from their uniqueness and contributions to society.
