Unlike my first four poetry books, this is my autobiography written for all those who wish to better understand mental illnesses. Once I began compiling this book I could feel the release of all my built up pressure and anxiety. This has truly helped me understand myself and even more importantly has enlightened me. My odyssey began as a young woman and has shaped me into who I am today. I hope you enjoy my sketches as this is first time that I have included them in one of my books. Once again it’s been my pleasure. Enjoy!
The words came slowly to me and I wondered how I had gotten along all those years without a glance backwards only forward. It had been a struggle but one that had to be taken in order to be where I am today. There are no regrets, only sorrow lingers for the lost days and nights. How I coped I have no idea or clue. It was like I was a robot doing what was necessary to survive the hellish regime. I was so tired, I just wanted to crawl back into my bed every morning but my dearest friend was waiting for me at the coffee shop. She was my pillar that I leaned on for guidance and support for so many years. She was my rock, my island. I could not have done it without her and my husband. They were my anchors and mentors.
