About the Book
This is a feel good story of one man`s life, my own. I felt compelled to write this to hopefully save many other people that suffer with this mental illness and the pain that I went through. I want everyone to know through reading this that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Today is not like the 1960`s and 1970`s when I grew up with it and no one talked about it.
This book takes you on a roller coaster journey from first to twelfth grades, explaining all along the way the problems that I had with ADD and my parents thinking I had a reading problem in third grade. It also addresses behavioral issues that I exhibited. These were finally linked to the learning disorders, which resulted in depression in my later years.
I sense that my parents are doing the best that they feel is right for me but I never get the help that I need and at thirteen as I enter my teen years it starts going down hill like a snowball. I got into smoking and drugs to get the acceptance that I thought I needed.
The end nearly comes in 2001 where after a failed marriage and a business that is not going well I decided to commit suicide. I have it all planned out. When, where, how but because of my children I decide not to do it. That is why I dedicated the book to them.
In the end I get right down to the reason I wrote the book which is that you can get healthy, lead a very productive life, and make something of yourself.
