A Life Without IX
by Ray Perreault
John is waking in crippling pain, not just the physical kind that he is used to, but a more disturbing kind that is eating away at his courage and dragging him deeper into dark despair. For 32 years he has struggled to build a better life, but now is giving up. He is beaten and to tired to pick himself up yet again. Where will the darkness lead and can the light of LOVE show him the way home?
