MY JOURNEY THROUGH DARKNESS
My Journey Through Darkness
Dedicated to Mom and Dad. Without your love I would not have been here to tell the story.
I have kept a diary since I was about twelve. I got the first one from a school friend. I only filled about five complete journals during my adolescence, as I wouldn’t write daily. However, in the pages that follow, where I have inserted the actual diary entries which I wrote while I was addicted to drugs, I wrote more fervently than at any other time.
I feel it is important to know that the parts of diary entries (in italics) are UNCUT AND UNEDITED reality. These were the exact thoughts and feelings I had at that time and not a word is added or left out. As I began to copy my journal onto the computer, I surprised myself at how it was a story in itself, but still felt the need to add a few facts afterwards. There were people and situations that played a big role in this story, and without them, the true message would be missed.
Take a walk with me now, down a road that may frighten you – it definitely frightened me! Once you get to the end, it is my hope and prayer that you may have learned something and perhaps find what I found; what amazing grace is all about!
