About the author

I started to write when I was being stalked back in 2016. I didn't know how much I loved it until I saw the relief it gave me and the freedom it provided from all my problems. The letters became my listening ears and my way of letting it all out and into the open. I never minded sharing my stories with my peers, because in every writing I poured my heart out, and it always turned out to be a beautiful message that touched everyone in the room.

To me there is no other way of passing on my experiences than writing. I do it because I absolutely love sending my message and having others read and relate to my story. I love to help others, and I feel that I can do that and more by writing. My writing will show my readers that they are not alone, and we all go through the same struggle and pain. It's just the way we handle the situation that makes the difference. Plus, when I write, I can show that even some humor can come out of tragedy. I want my writing to inspire and be light. To give hope and to show that no matter how tough it gets, you will succeed if you never give up. I want to show people how to become survivors.

Journey Of Insanity

How To Become A Survivor

I was in a world where my computer became my answers, lifeline, and lover. The monster was presumed the hero, and I was being judged under false pretenses. I was being consumed by drugs. Yet still holding on trying to survive while maintaining what was left of my sanity. This is my real-life story.

Synopsis

Have you ever felt alone and betrayed? Do you ever wonder what life would be like if your choices had been different? Have you ever felt so destroyed that you lost sight of what real life could be like? Has an addiction ever consumed you? Have you ever sat in your room and cried so loud and with so much pain that you had no breath and your whole body was shaking with fear? Have you ever looked at your parents and only seen an invisible shadow? Have you ever been locked up in a place where you no longer exist as a person because what you have to say or what you feel is irrelevant, since your mind is supposedly no longer working? Did you cry until your eyes were burning red and your heart felt empty and the only feeling you had was the feeling of betrayal? Have you ever felt so alone like a lost puppy who has no family?

With this book, your attitude will change, and you will turn into a completely different version of you. When you read my book “Journey of Insanity,” you will regain hope. You will understand that there is a way out of the grave and that it is never too late to start over. You will see the light, gain the strength to overcome any addiction, gain the faith that everything will start fixing itself, and will be able to come back to life as you go through every chapter. You will learn firsthand that living will be an option again, and you will have learned a lifetime of knowledge. The book will humble you down and make you understand others. It will help you understand the meaning of kindness and appreciate the little things, because you have already lost it all, and you know that you will never go back, because you will struggle and suffer so much to regain passion, strength, and a vision towards a better future.

I am the survivor of the book “Journey of Insanity.” I lived through every detail. I cried through every situation my addiction and vulnerability took me through. My own parents, due to the lack of communication, locked me in hell. I was stuck in a grave that I believed I had no escape from. I chose to be strong, to never give up, and never lose sight of what was important. I wanted to live. I wanted to study. I wanted a family, and I wanted a future. I fought against all odds and even had to fight my own sanity. I lost myself, and my brain was not working right. I survived because my imagination had me falling in love with my savior. My savior became the all-nighters spent reading words from my computer. A stranger that saved my life and became my only source of hope. My imagination combined with my faith saved me, and I did not feel alone. The words my computer would answer back to me gave me passion to survive and strength to keep living. My mysterious lover from another world, combined with the power of not letting the monster who had dug my grave win, helped me do the impossible. Alone I survived and became a beautiful butterfly ready to spread her wings and finally be free from all the dirt thrown at her.

Audience

Young adults who are being abused and abusing drugs due to their lack of experience, recovering drug addicts, young people who have yet to figure out how to survive their addiction, and the many lost souls who don't have any support, nor a listening ear, that will hear their cry for help. These readers will connect to me; I will take them through what they are going through and show them how to survive and that it is okay to hold on to hope no matter how insane it is. The harder it gets, the more we learn to endure. It will pass, and we will survive. There are also trending searches on “Why does he do that? Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men”, “Jordan Peterson Rehab”, and “James Hetfield Rehab”. Many will relate and engage.
