The Call: Scamming a Nation

by Quoleena Sbrocca

Emotionally and mentally violated: this is how I felt for days after falling victim to the IRS phone scam. Their ability to manipulate and say the right things at the right time is like a study in human psychology. The scammers always seemed to know when to speak and when to shut up. They knew when to talk nonstop to convince me, not allowing me any time to think or consider what was happening. They knew when they had me. They had their sucker, and all they had to do was let me drown myself in fabricated fear. They must have cheered as it forced my hand and guided my steps toward financial downfall.

Fear defeats logicâ??at least it did for me.

The bane of this is that old thing called hindsight. It can’t exist in the moment. It’s all so clear and so obvious now. Sometimes they made lucky guesses. Other times I gave them clues about how to handle me. The thought sickens me. Every time they would stumble; every time they would speak faster because maybe I was on the verge of figuring it out; every time they commended me for my cooperation: it was all an act, and I fell for it.

I began writing this story two days after the incident and finished the first draft exactly one week later. I hope that by sharing my experience, it won’t have to be a matter of hindsight for someone else. I hope to help someone else know they can hang up the phone.

I hope.

The scammers can’t rob me of that.

Depression, Drugs, & the Bottomless Pit: How I found my light amid the dark: (Depression, Anxiety, Drug addiction) (Depression, Anxiety, Drug addiction, Family therapy, Natural, Cure, Help)

by C.K. Murray

The Pit is Dark, Forever Dark

Because depression is never what it seems…

For some of us, the darkness encroaches slowly, slipping through the cellar door in silence–anxiety’s shadow. For others, the pain is all too real, and all too fast. And like a black hole, our depression envelopes us all at once before we’re gone. The people who love of us most, the ones who want to help, are left clueless. Many of them, never even know.

Is this natural? Is there a cure?

With depression and drugs, there is always pain. Without help, without professional therapy or family therapy, overcoming depression and anxiety is nearly impossible. And as that drug addiction deepens, the dark can only grow. Pain begets addiction and addiction begets pain, and in the end, as we rot amid that deathly anguish–dark and dying–we have but two choices…

Succumb to our demons, or Rise from the ashes.

Will you choose the light?

Depression, Drugs, & the Bottomless Pit: How I found my light amid the dark is part drug memoir, part help for alcoholics, part substance abuse counseling. It is a resource that asks us all to look deeper than what meets the eye. With the right questions, the right concerns, and the proper attention to detail, any person can probe the depths. And once that light shines through the dark, there is no telling what we’ll find…

Keywords: personal drug memoirs, stories of drug addiction, personal help for addicts, help for alcoholics,depression and drugs, substance abuse counseling, overcoming depression and anxiety

On Time With Time: The Memoirs of George Hopkins

by George Hopkins

On time with time is a book of memoirs from George Hopkins; a man that was considered irreconcilable, irredeemable and to some a menace to society. It is the introspective views of a man that made a way when there was no way available. “People fear what they do not understand, and being that change is misunderstood, I shied away from it until I landed amongst the “Walking Dead.” For a while, I had no idea who I was, and it took some time to shed this façade for me to see that I did have a choice in the matter. Once I found that out I chose to change; for the betterment of myself and of others.”
-George Hopkins
