Thanks for the Book
Sunday May 06, 2007
After suffering with drug addiction and crohns disease for many years I am just beginning to understand the affects of being abused by my parents. Your book ; The Body Never Lies was an eye opening and riveting account of my own story and troubles. I have marginalized their behavior to such an extent that I have been physically ill for so long. I am only now beginning my journey toward freedom at age 53. Thank you for your book . It rang true with me. I only hope that I find the compassionate listener that you speak of to help me in my journey toward health ; physical as well as emotional.
AM: You can recover from your disease if you find the courage to see what your parents did to the small child you once were and to feel your suppressed rage. With your symptoms you protect your parents from your blame and yourself from the expected punishment. Once you no longer do it your symptoms will disappear because their function will no longer be needed.
