Even though this has made you to the special and good person you are today, I’m sorry that you’ve had to experience so much pain, hurt, hatred and anxiety.
You must’ve felt so unwelcome and not appreciated as a human being (although this might be my own projection…).
I think it’s very brave and mending, putting down your story in writing and art. Even if you wouldn’t help another person with this book, you’ve reached your goal: you helped yourself and that’s the greatest gift you can give yourself.

“You need to warn the reader, and ramp up to the sheer awfulness of what you are writing about.”
“This is NOT general circulation material, not even among victims. It’s too searing….you’re going to get a lot of serious blowback….”
“I liked this. It works, for me. But it’s brutal. It’s too violent in tone. “
“What to do? Warn them, somehow. “
“…..one searing poem after another…wow. It’s just too intense.”
