hello everyone. i just want suggest a book for anyone who needs to find hope. whether you are recovering or still getting there, this is great if you need reassureance. i read this while i was at my worst and i couldn’t stand to look at it. now i just reread it a little bit before my last SI and i’ve completely changed my view. it does provide the message of hope that i needed to find. i didn’t find it triggering because it talks more about recovery than the actually issue of SI. (prepare yourself before reading though because you may find different things triggering than me.)

i’m not sure if i can post the name of the book because, even though it’s one short word, it could be triggering to some. so i’ll just say it’s written by patricia mccormick. i believe it’s the only book she’s written so it shouldn’t be that hard to find.

i hope it helps you as much as it helped me.
