The book arrived today. I thought I was going to slowly read it over the weekend, taking breaks here and there. I couldn't put it down. I read it straight through only stopping to answer the phone a couple of times. All I can say is wow.

As you read this book, you feel as though you are standing there with her, feeling her childhood pain and you just want to be a kid alongside her and give her a hug and ask her to be your friend. So many times I said out loud "yep, I know the feeling." It brought back memories of dealing with a step-father that was a terrible alcoholic and how a once great mother-daughter relationship dwindled to next to nothing because of him. Unlike present day, back then, you never spoke of problems or issues. Not even to your closest friends. This was because family would always say it was nobody's business and it would be a major embarrassment. Meanwhile, people knew, they just didn't know how bad. Like Lisa, I wasn't allowed to discuss "family issues." I learned early on to hold back and keep everything bottled up since the adults didn't think I was wise enough at 12 years old to understand what was going on. I learned how to act like everything was peachy meanwhile on the inside I was hurting.

Lisa is a heroine. After all she has been though, she took life by the horns and showed it who is boss. She is brave. Where many would keep the skeletons in their closets, she opted to open up the door and let them out in order to not only help herself, but also people that have struggled in the past or even now in the present.

This isn't just a self help book. It is an awakening.

This author is amazing. In her dedication she shares that she is
worried what her family is going to think about her decision to share
the way she felt as a little girl about them. Throughout the book, you
can feel the authors concern for her families feelings, in spite of the
dysfunctional relationship she had with them. I am guessing that
through her forgiveness of them, and more deeply her understanding of
who they were as children, is what lead to her emotional healing.

This book is amazing because you can feel the powerful healing of this
author through her words. She not only uses imagery so well that you
feel like you are in her living room, but you can hear her older self,
observing what she went through as a child as well.

What I enjoyed was how well the author was able to blend pain with
understanding.

I came away with feeling really inspired by her writing because she
went against the grain, and followed her guts, and broke free against
what her family had programmed her to believe.

I am so glad this author found the courage to write her story, and
followed her gut.

I understand more fully why and how I had so much anxiety growing up.
I never really felt loved either, even though my family looked so
perfect.

That was confusing. But this book showed me that I am not crazy, or
wrong for feeling crazy, because not feeling like you are allowed to
express your feelings, makes you feel crazy. Anxiety is what showed
up, because I wasn't letting me feel like me.

Now I know my only job is for me to learn to see me, and to love me,
even if the people I love, don't.

Per my therapist's recommendation, I've recently spent time on ACOA blogs. I discovered Lisa Romano's ACOA blog and it so resonated with me - so much that i just finished reading her book "Road Back to Me". which was her journey. I cried a river of tears as I could have been the author - i was that little girl and somedays I can still be that little girl - however am able to stop the old tapes sooner these days. I just ordered Lisa Romano's, "The Road Beyond The Codependent Divorce"

Thank you Lisa for the courage to share your experience with us.

Even though the story of the early part of her life was long-winding and I felt impatient, it was only later that you understand how she would allow her life to be dictated so much by boys /men.

Lisa's description of how she allowed herself to be under the thumb of a young boyfriend, and later her husband, showed how insecure, vulnerable and lacking in confidence she was.

I understand her anorexia as I've been there too. I understand her co-dependency and mostly I applaud her for the courage needed to leave and become the women she was always meant to be.

An inspiring book, even now reading it many years after it was written.

I have not read about co-dependency before. This book was very informative and helped me to understand the issues with co-dependency.

I really enjoyed this book espeically the childhood and teenager parts. They connected in very deep way with my own experience and it was very very well written. Lisa was very articulate about her struggles with her mother, her self esteem and her awkward friendship attempts. Although my own Asian abusive parents had other disturbing issues and reason for thier cruel behavior but that did not stop Lisa's stories from hitting home with me. Her stories was identical to my own experiences and old scars. I could not put this book down during those chapters.

My only problem with the book was the deep connection with me was suddenly lost during her marriage. I was at lost why was she really unhappy with her marriage because her husband came accross as a tradional italian construction worker. A man I would label as "what you see is what you get" and there wasn't enough deep angle writing about her actual marriage emotional struggles like her childhood chapters. However, that might be just my reading. Nonetheless I love this book.
