A very thought-provoking, interesting, moving and heartfelt personal story. I have not experienced any of the life-threatening traumas explored here. So I feel incredibly under-qualified to comment. My simple story is a lifetime one of caring for my (very much older) family members, coping with their incredibly distressing (often dirty and even disgusting) and ultimately destructive hoarding habits, coming to terms with my own missed diagnosis of endometriosis (which is why my husband and I were unable to have children, despite several rounds of IVF), and now caring for an 85 year old Mum with the beginnings of dementia. A recent major car accident, when my car was hit by a fuel tanker and written off, with my resulting physical and psychological 'injuries', has been a horrendously scary tipping point. I've had some very dark days indeed. Hence buying this audiobook. Hoping I get to see the light at the end of the tunnel one day...
