    I won this book on Goodreads. This book is about a memoir of a woman living in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada who was struck by a truck while walking and has had issues with PTSD ever since. I feel sad for her state and having to live with the physical and mental issues that surround her accident, including delusions, taking all those medications, losing her husband, having less and less finances to cover the costs and the struggles getting to places and appointments after the accident.

I feel sad for her state and having to live with the physical and mental issues that surround her accident, including delusions, taking all those medications, losing her husband, having less and less finances to cover the costs and the struggles getting to places and appointments after the accident. It makes me feel I should not take life for granted. The book is a bit choppy at times and some thoughts seems to be placed at random in the book but the author does state that her memory affects her so things can be repetitive in the book; she admits that she is not a professional writer by any means, the memoir was written for therapy and to put her life in writing due to her advanced age as she may not have another chance to do so. The pictures of her paintings are wonderful!

    PTSD is so real and super different for everyone, but this author shares her now feelings mixed with an emotional up and down story. I feel like it might have even been a bit healing for the author to write it and share it with the world. However PTSD is not something that is just ever swept under the carpet, so to speak.. It is so very intense and lingers long after most people suppose it could heal. I received a complimentary copy.
