I share about my story. My own darkness within, but also that of my late husband.

This is story of grief. Grief of a life I had planned to have. Grief of a healthy marriage. Grief of a literal life altogether. The toll addiction places on personal and professional life, in addition to the closure that can come with time.

My hope is that this book leaves you with a new perspective on addiction and forgiveness, and some authenticity when it comes to the mental health of even the happiest of people.

Maybe it’ll bring the push you need to make a change in your own life, or showing more empathy towards those that surround you. I hope this book, a piece of my story, makes an impact in your life for the better.


A Series of Flashbacks: Darkness Within is a self-published book by Melissa Anne (me), a former army medic now widow.
