About Mending My Mind:
Sara appears to have everything it takes to be happy: a loving wife, a beautiful home and a successful biotech career. But inside, she’s battling a perplexing, self-destructive impulse that has driven her to sabotage relationships—including her marriage. Through a journey of self-exploration she discovers that, unknowingly, she is suffering from Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD), a condition caused by a series of events that occurred over an extended period of time. And it is preventing her from living a fulfilling life and connecting to her loved ones—and herself.
Mending My Mind gives readers an up-close, touching look at life with PTSD, its causes and the remedies that help. As Sara seeks to heal and retrain her mind, she tries cutting-edge treatments and ancient approaches to overcome the emotional distancing that has shielded her from the pain of childhood trauma and the long-buried memory of witnessing a murder. As she begins to change her destructive patterns, she can at last live a more meaningful life.
This gripping, candid memoir provides hope and inspiration for those struggling with trauma, as well as valuable insights for all.
