How did my life become such a battle just to breathe? When did I start to hate everything that is me? Along the way where did I lose my family, the Horde, and their support I have always relied on? Why did I push them away? What's going on with me? Who am I anymore? Why do I even care when it seems no one else does?
My life is a constant struggle. Getting up everyday is becoming harder and harder. I feed the demons of my loneliness by myself because I refuse to reach out for help. Why won't I reach out? As the emptiness of my very existence threatens my sanity, I search for ways to make myself just feel. The problem is each time I find a new way to feel it's not only causing me pain but also bodily harm.
Will I be able to focus on the light amongst all the pain and darkness my mind sees? Will the people fighting to bring me back win or will the emptiness of my soul finally pull me down to nothingness? I don't have a clue.
Daisy’s Darkness by D.M. Earl
Daisy’s Darkness is the sixth book in the Wheels and Hogs series by D.M. Earl. This is the first book I have read in this series, so it can be read as a standalone, but I think I will go back and read the rest of this series. This book tackled some serious current issues going on today. I think the author did a really good job bringing bullying, eating disorders, mental and physical abuse, depression, cutting and suicide. It was a read that had me reaching for the tissue box from beginning to end. The emotional roller coaster was hard to handle, but the subjects need to be discussed out in the open to those who are lost in the darkness. I would definitely recommend this book, it brings today’s issues to light. It may help both those going through these issues, but it may also show those close to someone what to look for in the darkness.
Wow. I thought I knew what I was getting ready to read when I picked this book up. But I wasn’t prepared for the pure emotion that filled every page. You name it - I felt it. I felt it for Daisy. I felt it as Daisy. Beautifully written, the author works through some really remarkable emotion toil and social issues and treats them with levity. Nothing was glossed over. Everything felt authentic. Just an incredibly well written book.
