With my unapologetic honesty, I offer a point-of-view from an unexpected side of the table: the patient – not the doctor, not the therapist. Writing the articles in this site, as well as the current process of publishing my novel on trauma, “The Escape Artist”, serve as therapeutic tools and hopefully helpful ones for readers who need it.
