I was browsing shock books on Amazon and came across a new survivor account, From the Lion’s Mouth: Healing from Trauma, Electroshock, Scapegoating, and Grief in a Dysfunctional Family and Psychiatric System.
Of course I bought it asap. There are so few survior accounts in print, each one is a precious commodity to me. I go all Pokemon ,”gotta catch em all.”
I promise it’s not some sick hobby. I feel a little more complete every time I hear this horror story of shock told from a different perspective…a little less lost, if that makes sense.
The book was well written and engaging–I blazed through it in a couple hours. If you’re a survivor or ally or a curious lay person wth little exposures of the dark world of psychiatry, I highly recommend this book.
Also, I think it’s important to support those brave enough to share this unpopular reality of electroshock buy buying,sharing, their work and maybe even leaving a positive reviews on Amazon 🙂
Keep an eye out also a hefty dose of hope as well 😉
A side note to the author should I be so lucky to have her visit my site: Thank you for sharing your story, Julia. I promise to show you some love on Amazon soon 🙂
