I have read your book and it has been such a gift of healing for me.
I felt such a deep connection with the pain of your experiences and felt tremendous sadness for you that I was then able to experience towards myself.
As a health professional I have felt tremendous shame in not being able to heal myself and was unable to acknowledge the depths of my dissociation.
Your capacity to articulate your experience of this has helped me to understand its complexity and function and have increased my compassion for myself in my ongoing journey towards healing.
I resonated with your words that “every survivor has been granted the gift of life, not once, or twice but over and over again. It’s a gift that deserves to be celebrated.” I so hope that I really come to really know this.
Your life is such a testimony of HOPE. I hope that I can have the same courage that you have had – for me, my husband and children.
Your story has been such a gift that is precious beyond words, Cathy.
