Boldly trekking back to a daunting past, author Gary J. Mello shares to readers his story of struggle, confusion, solitude, and ultimate acceptance in his newly released novel. Made available through Xlibris, Pushing The Limit: Try Anything For One More Day chronicles how he once thrived to live everyday fighting HIV/AIDS.
He was a great kid who attended a Catholic school. But as a youth, his drinking and taking drugs took the better of him. Today, the author admits that his downfall was definitely the drugs, drinking, and total anarchist behavior. As he entered the U.S. Marine Corps, he was introduced to a new world, one where he is expected to defend his country no matter what. However, in his service, he not only had to deal with making other people understand why he had juvenile felonies, he also had to endure abusive officers who emotionally and physically beat him. What he thought was already a life of hell turned into something more nightmarish. In the next eighteen years, he would deal with the horrors of HIV/AIDS.
“I give you all fair warning; this story is mine. There are many like it, but this one is mine. I am my best friend. It is my life. I am an AIDS survivor and a Marine. I must master my rifle. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my rifle is useless; without my rifle, I am useless. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me,” the author shares.
An honest and often provocative journal of one man’s unconventional life journey, Pushing The Limit: Try Anything For One More Day is written for adults, drug addicts, and HIV/AIDS victims. Through the author’s memory, readers will be taken to world of the bizarre and unknown, where victory is only made possible through faith and courage.
