WHAT MY BONES KNOW: A MEMOIR OF HEALING FROM COMPLEX TRAUMA
For my fellow complex PTSD darlings: I know that trauma books can be triggering and painful to read. I've struggled through a number of them myself. But I felt that it was necessary for me to share my abusive childhood in order for the reader to understand where I'm coming from. Part I of this book might be tough for you, though I ask that you at least give it a shot.
But I won't judge you if, at any point, you need to skip ahead a few pages. And I'd like to promise you this, even if it is a bit of a spoiler:
This book has a happy ending.
