My Problem is Adam is the true story of my life told with flashbacks between my first trip to the psychiatric ward and everything that landed me there. I hold nothing back in recounting how I went from a depressed child who first attempted suicide at the tender age of eight to a disenchanted teen drug addict. My turnaround began, when as a young adult, I entered a transitional living program in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. After achieving some success and stability, I returned to my delusions of being a functional user.The ensuing downward spiral culminated in a choice I faced in my second stint as a psychiatric patient: recover or die. I have been clean and sober since January 25, 2005, and I believe my story of recovery can help others in the same way those who came before helped me.
