Description:
What would you do if you thought you were going crazy? That, at any time, the voices in your head would finally overwhelm you, hijacking your senses, leaving you a babbling mess, locked up and all alone? Would you tell someone? Who, your family? A doctor? What if the doctors agreed with you, that you were going to lose it one of these days, then what? Storm Large (her real name) knew the toll of mental illness from an early age. She spent major portions of her childhood visiting her mother in mental hospitals and the rest of the time by herself. During a visit to one of these institutions, she jokingly asked her mother's doctor: "I'm not going to end up crazy like her, right?" To which he replied to the nine-year-old, "It's hereditary. You will absolutely end up like your mother." At that moment, Storm's life changed forever. Figuring her only chance at any semblance of a life was to run away from everything she saw in her Mom, the weak, the sad, the drug addled and suicidal. She stomped her size twelve boots through sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, on safari for her sanity. One by one she battled her demons of self-destruction, promiscuity at age thirteen, developing an insatiable hunger for drugs and awful men, eventually becoming addicted to heroin. It was a chance performance with a friend's band that finally pulled Storm back from the edge. When she discovered her rich talent and deep love for singing, that passion became her salvation and gave her the will to overcome. Storm's one-woman show, which inspired her to write down her story and serves as the foundation for the book, was praised by press as 'gritty' and 'unapologetic', as well as 'funny and direct and insightful'.
