<blockquote><p>The amazing true story of an out-of-control rock star, his devastating addiction to drugs, and his miraculous redemption through Jesus Christ.</p></blockquote><p>In February 2005, more than ten thousand people in Bakersfield, California, watched as Brian "Head" Welch—the former lead guitarist of the controversial rock band Korn—was saved by Jesus Christ. The event set off a media frenzy as observers from around the world sought to understand what led this rock star out of the darkness and into the light.</p><p>Now, in this courageous memoir, Head talks for the first time about his shocking embrace of God and the tumultuous decade that led him into the arms of Jesus Christ. Offering a backstage pass to his time with Korn, Head tells the inside story of his years in the band and explains how his rock star lifestyle resulted in an all-consuming addiction to methamphetamines. Writing openly about the tour bus mayhem of Ozzfest and The Family Values tour, he provides a candid look at how the routine of recording, traveling, and partying placed him in a cycle of addiction that he could not break on his own.</p><p>Speaking honestly about his addiction, Head details his struggles with the drug that ultimately led him to seek a higher power. Despite his numerous attempts to free himself from meth, nothing—not even the birth of his daughter—could spur him to kick it for good. Here Head addresses how, with the help of God, he emerged from his dangerous lifestyle and found a path that was not only right for his daughter, it was right for him. </p><p>Discussing the chaotic end to his time in Korn and how his newfound faith has influenced his relationship with his daughter, his life, and his music, Head describes the challenging but rewarding events of the last two years, exposing the truth about how his moments of doubt and his hardships have only deepened his faith.</p><p>Candid, compelling, and inspirational, <em>Save Me from Myself</em> is a rock 'n' roll journey unlike any other. </p>

<DIV><B>The “powerful and moving” true story of a Long Island family torn apart by drugs, violence, and the unbridgeable divide between generations (<I>Kirkus Reviews</I>).</B><BR /><BR /> George Diener, World War II veteran and traveling salesman, and his wife, Carol, had old-fashioned values and ordinary aspirations: a home, a family, the pleasure of watching their two sons grow up. But in February 1972, an unthinkable tragedy occurred in the basement of their Nassau County residence, shattering their hopes and dreams forever.<BR />  <BR /> George and Carol doted on their shy eldest son, Richie. But at fifteen, the boy fell into a devastating downward spiral. He started smoking marijuana, shoplifting, and hanging out with drug dealers, and was soon arrested for assault and expelled from school. By the time his parents sought psychiatric counseling for their son, Richie was addicted to barbiturates and given to violent outbursts and threats. The boy George and Carol knew was long gone. Then, one winter evening, Richie came at his father with a steak knife and a suicidal cry of “Shoot!”<BR />  <BR /> Edgar Award–winning author Thomas Thompson delivers a “scary, harrowing” account of a turbulent era in American history when the gulf between young and old, bohemian and conservative, felt wider and more dangerous than ever before (<I>The New York Times Book Review</I>). A tragedy of Shakespearean proportions, the devastating account of George and Carol Diener’s nightmare was adapted into <I>The Death of Richie</I>, a television movie starring Ben Gazzara, Eileen Brennan, and Robby Benson as Richie.<BR />  </DIV>

I grew up with a narcissistic mother. For years, the woman who was supposed to love, nurture and protect me would berate and humiliate me.<br /><br />I grew up feeling insecure, anxious, lonely and confused as to why my mother didn’t show me the same affection other children received from their mother.<br /><br />From a timid, eager to please child, I grew into a nervous, unstable teenager. This spilled over into my adulthood, until I connected my instability to my narcissistic childhood.<br /><br />When I did this, I began my healing journey. <br /><br />I slowly built myself from the ground up; retracing my steps back to childhood and fixing the self-esteem, overly critical and self-blaming traits I had been left with due to my childhood.<br /><br />As someone who has come out of the other side of narcissism, it’s something I’ve come to have a deep understanding and knowledge of. I’m passionate about connecting with other adult survivors of narcissistic mothers to hear their stories, as well as share our understanding of the abuse.<br /><br />This book will encompass both of these factors. I will help you overcome your narcissistic childhood by offering you the following:<br /><br />The different types of narcissistic mother, helping you can identify yours<br />The six traits you likely have because you were raised by a narcissistic mother<br />An insight into my narcissistic mother and how she affected me as a child and beyond<br />Helpful, mindful ways and exercises to help guide you through the healing process<br />Ways you can set boundaries with your mother, should you choose to have a relationship with her<br />My offering of advice on the road to closure - I’ve travelled that road, and I can give you my first hand experience<br /><br />During my healing journey, I sought out other adult survivors of narcissistic mothers. I found them through forums, Facebook groups and support groups.<br /><br />Each of us have a different story, a different mother and were all subject to different types of narcissism - but the outcome remains the same for the adult survivors of childhood narcissistic abuse. <br /><br />Throughout this book, I have included the stories, memories and helpful advice from some of the people I made connections with through those groups. When I was seeking answers and help regarding my mother and her treatment of me, to know I wasn’t alone was a great boost for me. <br /><br />To know that these people came out on the other side was an even greater morale boost, and I hope to offer you the same surge of empowerment by reading this book.<br />

There are no easy answers to deep-seated public problems like substance abuse. In order to make progress on such issues, we need to tap the experience, wisdom, and hopes of people in communities who are concerned about the issue. Why does this issue matter to people? What roles can different people and organizations play? What actions would make the most difference? What are the potential drawbacks and trade-offs of different approaches?<BR><BR>The purpose of this issue guide is to help people talk together about what we should do when alcohol and drug use becomes a problem to society. It begins with an overview of substance use and abuse in the United States and the impact this has on individuals, families, and communities. It then offers three options for addressing the issue, along with potential actions that could be taken. These are starting points for the conversation, which may lead to other insights and possibilities.<BR><BR>People from seven organizations across the country participated in developing the guide, conducting interviews, surveys, and conversations with diverse people in their communities to capture different views on the issue. The organizations included the Community College of Baltimore County, San Diego Deliberation Network, Tennessee State University, University of Alaska Anchorage, Walden University, SUNY Broome Community College, and the West Virginia Center for Civic Life.<BR><BR>This issue guide presents the following three options for deliberation:<BR><STRONG><BR>Keep People Safe</STRONG><BR>According to this option, the main problem is that substance abuse threatens our safety and well-being. “The rise in crime in this area and others won’t decline until the problem is eradicated,” a police investigator said. “We need to get help for the addict, get him or her off the street and go after the dealers and players.” This option says we need to tightly regulate and control the production and use of alcohol and drugs. We must impose fair punishments for people who break the rules and assure treatment for substance abuse for those who need it. We must not become complacent about the serious harm that substance abuse can cause to individuals and society.<BR><BR><STRONG>Address Conditions that Foster Substance Abuse</STRONG><BR>According to this perspective, the main problem is that we are ignoring the social issues that contribute to substance abuse. “Substance abuse is not a contagious disease, and no one says, ‘I want to be a substance abuser when I grow up.’” a nurse said. “Life circumstances have put these people in the situation they are in.” This option says we need to recognize that discrimination creates a society where people may self-medicate with drugs and alcohol because they lack power and opportunities. We should stop placing all the blame on individuals and demand more accountability from drug companies, the media, and society at large. We must strengthen local economies and create better jobs to reduce the incentive to sell drugs illegally, and reduce the discrimination that can lead people to use substances as an escape.<BR><BR><STRONG>Uphold Personal Freedom</STRONG><BR>According to this view, the main problem is that current efforts to control substance use infringe on people’s rights and are ineffective. “The idea that law enforcement can take care of this problem on their own, even if they had more resources, is a complete fallacy,” said a board member of a nonprofit agency. This option says we need to ease up on overregulation and focus instead on providing accurate information so people can make their own choices about substance use. We must also protect the legal and civil rights of people arrested for drug-related crimes and reform laws that are unduly intrusive or unfair.
