In Episode 13's part 2 of 11, Diane describes how cycles of violence and "predictable darkness" affected her while growing up in an alcoholic home.  We touch on the story "Authorities Frightened Me" from page 253 (or 255 depending on the book's edition) in "From Survival To Recovery" (B-21) and Chapter 5 ("Becoming Aware" on page 21) from "How Al-Anon Works" (B-32).  Lastly, I learn how a book can be a picture frame!

QUOTABLE MOMENT FROM DIANE:
