I applaud Tara for coming foreward with her story. It is so important for others who are struggling to know that they are not alone and that there is help for them!
I too struggled with self-injury for more than 30 years before I was able to reach a point where I could say I was injury free for a year. Frustrated by the lack of knowledge among medical/health professionals about self-injury, I shared my story in a new memoir entitled "Comes the Darkness, Comes the Light" released by AMACOM in May 2007. This book is the first of its kind in the United States.
Tara and I are on the same mission: to break through the veil of shame that surrounds this disorder!
I have a blog and would love visitors and comments! www.vanessa-vega.com
