I've delved into this book as if reading/listening to the lives of good friends who have gone through traumatic times, and come out of them with insight and wonder to write about them. Each 'chapter' of questions and answers is a story itself. And each discusses a part of life that gives pain and strength, fear and ultimately, even joy. Some stories grabbed me more than others; for me, the ones about struggling with weight issues, cancer, parental abuse, care giving, and depression lifted me with the courage that these writers show in writing honestly about their struggles, and their path to joy.

To my mind, the stories in this book can be divided into two sets, those participants who had to deal with circumstances imposed on them by a third party or outside force creating circumstances over which they did not have complete control and those participants who ended up in a situation of their own making through their obsessive natures or those human frailties, like low self esteem and anxiety. I know from personal experience with friends and family that overcoming such mental barriers is an incredibly difficult thing to do.
I commend all of these authors and bloggers for their courage and honesty in writing their personal stories to help and encourage others who many be facing similar situations.

All those interviewed by Stevie have a story to tell and they do it quite well in their answers to her questions. It’s good to have the links to their blogs as well, so we can follow up and interact. If anything, I wish I had been more fulsome in my responses. But with the links there anyone interested enough can click on over and read my words.
In my case the support I have had since sharing my story on my blog has been massive, especially considering my accident was over 40 years ago.
This anthology is full of interesting people who have experienced real trauma or significant events in their lives. We are all everyday people, not celebrities, but still our stories deserve to be told and heard!
Thanks to Stevie for giving us this place to share and be heard.
