Biography of William Marion
My name is William Marion im from upstate New York born and raised. I am just recently getting into writing and enjoying reading poetry, im a huge music fan with one of my all time favorite musicians being Bob Dylan. To give you a little glimpse to where im at in my life right now I will start with Feb.2011 when i was to fall victim to a stroke. I feel as if i made a decent recovering with no physical disabilities but noticed that the depression that i have suffered from became increasingly worse. In the past before that stroke i had used drugs and alcohol recreationally and In sept.2011 began using powerfull drugs on a daily basis only to overdose in Nov.2011 which caused me to have another stroke and was in a coma for 4 days. Immediately started outpatient drug rehab and started making amends with my wife who was obviously very upset and frustrated to find out about my drug use after the fact. On march 13th 2012 I attempted suicide after thinking my wife was going to leave me, obviously it was a failed attempt and now i sit here living with my parents going thru a divorce and dealing with a powerfull mental illness. I am still clean and sober and I have faith and pray that I will get better and things will take a turn in that direction. Unfortunately Thoughts of suicide are very real on a daily basis and i will continue to fight for my life. And so im excited to learn some new stuff and be inspired as well as desired.
