The legacy of childhood trauma.
"Trauma is a time traveller, an ouroboros that reaches back and devours everything that came before. Only fragments remain" - Junot Diaz
This is a story written by the Junot Diaz for the New Yorker - I never got any help, any kind of therapy. I never told anyone.
This is a brilliant and confronting story written by a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. Junot writes honestly about how this abuse shattered his existence. But he survived and eventually fought to change his life. He was brave enough to break his silence and tell the world. This is a story well worth reading.
