Writing has helped me find my way through the dark thoughts that I can't always express to those close to me. In this book I have shared my reflections, in the hope that others may benefit from the support, comfort and inspiration these words have brought me.
My writing aims to provide practical help with the sometimes difficult choices we encounter, whilst embracing the emotional and spiritual aspects of the journey that are so often hard to express. No matter whether you are a sufferer or a loved one sharing the unwanted journey I hope my words will help light your way along destiny's troubled road.
From the Author
The writing of this book has helped me take the battle to my demon. Whether my demon is slain or just in retreat I shall not know for sure, however I am ready to fight should it again appear from the shadows.
I stand on the mighty plains before the demon's lair and shout come out and fight, but the plain stays silent, for the demon has passed within me and is coursing through my veins, I say how can I fight the thing I cannot see, who will be my champion now, with heavy heart I lay down my sword.
I look toward the scalpel and the skilful hand of my surgeon to cut away the demon's lair from deep within.
I look towards the alchemists, not for gold but for potions powerful and rare to hunt the demon down, and should my body grow weak of potion so strong I look to kindred spirit to rally and spur me on.
If I should win the fight I can rejoice in victory, but should I lose this most terrible fight I know something this most insidious of demon cannot know, as for me to lose will forge a seal upon the warrant to the demon's own demise.
