I loved this book despite feeling like I rubbed a sunburn with sandpaper. It's not a how-to-get-over-your-tragedy-and-get-on-with-life book. Marla helps us to acknowledge that there are some things that you can't just forget and leave in the past. There are some avenues to try and some will provide help, but the victim of abuse can feel utterly alone and unable to control responses to the unexpected.
I would highly recommend this book even if you haven't experienced abuse in your life. It's an accurate path to empathizing with those who have.
Anyone suffering from PTSD will find it validating. Ms. Handy's intimate look at how PTSD hurts makes it obvious that people who suffer from Invisible injuries need and deserve the same respect as those with physical injuries. This is not a diary but it comes close to it.
Kudos to the author for her bravery, honesty, intelligence and compassion. Ms. Handy's story exemplifies that It is not easy to live with PTSD. Her resilience displays that it is possible to accomplish goals in life in spite of having harsh, and many times painful, emotional road blocks
Ignore the awful book description. This is the best book available about what it's like to have complex PTSD from childhood abuse.
