I'm still trying to process what I read. Just when I think I've read the worst of it, I'm wrong. It's simply horrifying to read these things knowing they happened to the author and knowing they happen to tens of thousands of children every day. I'm so thankful she had the strength to survive her childhood and to help shed light so that we all can be more aware of those psychopaths who walk among us.
Ignore the reviews that say keeps repeating herself. I believe she wrote this book to help other muncher survivors grasp what happened to them so therefore cites all other abusers and probable diagnosis e.g. angel of death to differentiate from munchers. Her story is heartbreaking and shows what a strong lady she is. This is one of the most comprehensive books I have read on MPS and she goes into great detail about how a muncher abuses their victims by her own experience well worth the read to bring this controversial subject into mainstream media. Most munchers are not caught due to ignorance of this severe form of child abuse.
Though it was a bit repetitive, there was a lot of interesting information I was n not aware of. I wish y there were more stories about her, though. More about her childhood, more about her final months and escape from the house, and more about her life after, how she healed and recovered. I wonder whatever happened to her mother or other family members.
Great ebook about the author's munchausen syndrome by proxy afflicted mother who spent the author's childhood torturing her and her siblings to get unnecessary medical attention and treatment. It's horrifying
