    I just thought I'd share one of my crazy little coping mechanisms.

    I keep a little diary in my bedside table with two colums. The first column in mad as hell, and the second is silver linings.

    It has some crazy stuff in it like:

    Mad as hell: Bought my kid a tent today because he'd rather do drugs then have a roof over his head
    Silver lining: I had money to buy a tent, roof over his head and his tent mate is a veteran with survival skills.

    It's my quirky way to not get too soft on my addicted son and not to become too hard hearted. I should publish it. Just not sure if it should be sold as an autobiography, humor or horror section.

    Who would buy this? Lol

    You might be surprised who would buy it... there's lots of us who "get it"... and who need this kind of dark humour to survive.

    Love this!! When we can take something negative and find something positive in it is an amazing thing to do.
    Yes, you should publish it.
