Note to New Readers, Page 2

My free access short story “Pride’s Prison,” published on the internet zine Bewildering Stories, is a thinly-veiled personal memoir of once having been a victim of severe school bullying for an extended period of time, three years. My website is free access and free of ads and will always remain so. For any who enjoy reading here regularly, the only “price” I ask is to read my short story at your earliest convenience and to recommend it to others who might have an interest in the subject of school bullying.

I believe you will find the story very moving, especially when you begin its second half. It's the story's message that concerns me:  why kids so often react as they do to being bullying victims in school; and how very dangerous this phenomenon is and how very critical it is for parents to keep a watchful eye upon their school age youngsters. If any doubt this, then please read John Halligan’s narrative at his son’s website.

The climax of “Pride’s Prison” (the first few pages of the second half of the story) is intended to hit the reader like an emotional sledgehammer. Writing these few pages was the closest I have come to crying since around age seven. You will understand how such kids feel. This asked for “price” for reading at my website is, of course, strictly on the honor system. One hour of your life might one day make a world of difference to some kid close to you; a child very much like my youthful character.

At present, my section on Tourette’s Syndrome and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (“Tourette's/ADHD") consists of four essays on the subjects, three of which are now also available for reading at Ezine Articles. The major difference between my thoughts on the subject of TS and those offered at almost all other sites is that I maintain that TS is a mental health condition and not a “neurological disorder” as it is currently classified by the medical and mental health establishments. I believe that my views will one day be vindicated. I would particularly point the reader to my third article on the subject: “Is Tourette’s Syndrome a Neurological Disorder?—A Dissenting Viewpoint."  Click to continue:
