Because these are pieces of nonfiction, transcribed exactly from written work in 1984 - 1988, some may include references to suicide, underage sexual interchanges, prostitution, illegal drug use, self-mutilation and the like.

This group of work is neither an endorsement nor an indictment on any or all of the above. It is strictly a chronicle of those years of my life, written during those years.

However, many of those behaviors are illegal, unhealthy and/or dangerous, and at the time, I looked for help for some of them which I could not find easily. If you are involved in the above behaviors and need help or guidance (or just a good reality check), please see the resource section for a multitude of ways you may find it.
