My Fight to Find Me
About the Book
Stripping: My Fight to Find Me will take you into the mind, body, brain, and soul of Dr. Sunita Merriman as she journeys to reclaim her true self. Through the gift of her words, you will hear and feel what happens when a child experiences loss and trauma. How is it that the world appears to be the same scary place to her in adulthood and continues to haunt her? How can she grow up so sound, accomplished, and highly successful on the outside yet be so fragmented on the inside? Sunita’s poems give a no-holds-barred account of a grueling and raw battle that is at times tough to read. Yet you will be compelled to keep turning the pages until you get to the last one. The author doesn’t only share her fight but she also recognizes and celebrates the human unconscious that defies suffering and reaches out to be healed and loved. Stripping: My Fight to Find Me translates the language and spirit of the unconscious and is about how the intimate and mysterious relationship between science and spirituality make up the sacred in us all.
About the Author
Dr. Sunita Merriman has spent over two decades as a health care professional dedicated to treating her patients with the belief that the mind, body and soul are connected. Now she writes about her deeply personal journey to unmask, understand and defeat the darkness that was the legacy of trauma and toxic stresses from adverse childhood experiences and trans-generational wounds. She sought help and in Stripping- My fight to find Me, she shares her triumph over darkness, so others can feel empowered and inspired to do the same and live the life they were meant to. Sunita's poetry translates the language and spirit of the human unconscious as it transforms pain and suffering into hope. A new understanding of how trauma effects children, recognition of attachment and interpersonal neurobiology, intensive short term dynamic psychotherapy techniques and neuroplasticity brought about structural changes in Sunita’s brain that allowed her to let go of her past and embrace her future and her full potential as a human being. Dr. Merriman lives in Edison, New Jersey with her husband and their two daughters.
