I read this book for World Literary Cafe.
I will be honest, I had a hard time with this book. It's not because I don't feel for the author and what she has gone through in her life with the child abuse and rape. It's just that I feel she is giving into her abusers still.
There is a person in my life that was abused as a child at the hand of a parent. I also have a person in my life that has PTSD. Neither respond in the way the author does.
I guess it's true that everyone responses to things differently. In my opnion she is still giving into the abusers and that lets them win. Her triggers let them win. That may make me cold hearted but that is how I feel.
This book was not a memoir or even a self help book. It also doesn't really show you what PSTD is. Everyone that has PSTD has different symptoms and treatments. I'm not really sure what the point to this book was given that there are different symptoms and treatments.
