Description
This memoir chronicles Anna's recovery from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after being raped by a friend. She shares about her battles with anxiety, suicidal ideation, binge-drinking, rage, sleepless nights, nightmares, flashbacks, and more as she struggles to cope with limited support. Anna begins healing in 2014, 12 years after her trauma. She builds a support system that includes a dance/movement therapist, massage therapist, canine good citizen, meditation group, family and friends.

Her friends and family build their knowledge and understanding of PTSD so they may better support her. Readers will be left with an understanding of the mental health field and a sense of hope that the brain, body and heart can heal and thrive after sexual trauma.
