Flop Sweat #3

by Lance Ward Author

In this third issue of Flop Sweat, author Lance Ward picks up where he left off in the second issue. Having discovered that he was too overweight to join the army, Ward is forced to get a job as a night clerk at a gas station. After making friends with a cokehead who would come in every night, Ward began doing coke and became addicted, ultimately culminating in a run-in with the law when his cokehead friend robbed the gas station. Though Ward avoids prison time, his family is still an abusive mess, he still has severe anxiety and depression, and he finds himself committed to a psychiatric hospital by his mother.
