Dissociated trauma memories do not simply reveal themselves like ordinary memories. Like pieces of a puzzle, they escape the primitive part of our brain where the trauma has been stored without words.
These starkly vivid and detailed images are defined by our five senses and emotions, but there is no ‘story’. So therefore, we are left struggling to comprehend the incomprehensible whilst striving to describe what doesn’t make sense.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and heartwarming read, 2 April 2014
This review is from: The Journey of I & I: [The Definition of I & I] (Paperback)
I started reading this book with some trepidation, not my usual type of book but after the first few pages I was hooked!! The sadness, the ups and downs, the laughter and life changing events throughout the book brought out so many emotions! I would be tearful on one page and laughing out loud on the next. Congratulations to the author of this book, your writing style is true brilliance. Looking forward to the next one!
