This book possibly saved my sanity. I discovered it seeking an explanation for memory problems and a disturbing startle response.
I realized how relevant it was as I read through, worked through, and re-read. It gave me a name for my problems. It gave me a name, it gave me hope, and it gave a possible path through to the other side of darkness.
I STRONGLY recommend this book for anyone dealing with the realization for trauma, trying to figure out how to go from surviving to living, and those just realizing that there really was a problem.
