I learned a lot about mental illness and what it means to live with it from reading this. I have known people with forms of mental illness but never knew them in that illness as well as I feel I now know the author. I certainly feel I have gained a better understanding and more compassion for the abused as well as a greater hatred for the abusers.
I must caution the reader, as the author himself does, that this book is not for everyone and not an easy read. The writing itself is easy to read, but the content is hard to stomach and the detail, which is warranted, can be tough to stomach. I had to be clinical at times and as I have stated, I had to read it in bursts to not get overwhelmed.
Sexual abuse is way too common. From experience I can tell you it will leave an imprint for life. I can also tell you that when it isn't actually happening to you, it is hard to see. And for that I will forever be feeling some guilt.
You only get one chance at life and some choices are better than others. Some chances pay off and some do not. Please read this book with an open mind and open heart. Take from it what you need to heal yourself or help someone in your life that you might now realize needs it. Life might not always feel like it is worth living. Please seek out someone. Whether you think it or not, there is someone out there that cares for you and would be there for you through thick and thin.
The author says in the preface that he wants to give people an infrequently seen view into the mind of the mentally ill. This is a book intended to raise awareness to the reality of mental illness, the triggers and the outcomes.
I would not recommend this book for everyone. However, if you work in public service or the mental health field, I think this book provides a rare glimpse into the processes of the client. This is not the story complied and cleaned up for the therapy suite but the meandering thoughts that have to be attacked getting to the sanitized version of life.
This book is not for everyone, but for those drawn to it; I do think you will find its value.
