Saved with Honu is my story, written with honest emotion, and with a goal of helping someone out there. At the age of eleven the ball of my right femur broke off at the growth plate, and three surgeries later I have a fused hip. This experience triggered a change in me; I became disabled, which led to drinking, and eventually turned into a seven year depression. Once out of the depression I would live at half potential for another eleven years. My story is about positivity, and the required process to get from being buried in depression to being vibrantly alive. What makes this book unique is that I survived the turmoil of my emotion through poetic expression, and the back pages contain more than seventy poems written throughout my depression and recovery. I tell the story now because, it can do far more good for others, than it can do harm to me. Written with humor and insight, it’s a story about how I helped myself, and what I learned by doing it the hard way.

 Concerning my decision to self-publish, I did so to keep the story pure. I fear that a traditional publisher would strip the emotion and leave the pages lifeless.
