Overview

He slammed the pedal to the floor. Barren trees turned to pillars of concrete while the angry Fox River took voice, Join me. My God, you're going to kill us. Limbs and debris hurled everywhere. Mike's eyes swelled. His face reddened. His screams were shrills from Satan's Den. My loving spouse--paranoid and psychotic. Life was almost a Renoir'. In the shadows, a brain tumor named Monster splattered unsettling strokes on his palate. Death, his intent. He left us emotionally handcuffed and shackled. Mike was deranged. I was mean and wore my bitterness well covering the ugly in a rosy charade. I clung to the towel until it became too heavy to throw. Then, said, No more. The true epic took 20 years to document and reach print. Mental illness and disease hit every family. What this family endured is boldly told so others may understand the depth of brain disorders and disease. One is left to wonder how they survived ... or ... did they? Monster dies. But, wait! He returns inflicting Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Miracles happen. The book gives new hope in cancer treatments and natural healings. A must-read for anyone who cares for those with mental disorders, brain tumors, and personality disorders, as well as, debilitating disease.
