About the Book

Inside Out joins author Nyla V. at the lowest point in her life. She begins writing a journal as the only way she knows how to attempt to deal with the pain she’s experiencing. In her first layer of journal entries, Nyla details her descent into utter hopelessness while loving an addict she hopes will overcome his terrible ways. In her second layer of journal entries a year later, she demonstrates progress in new habits of self-love and care, showing the drastic difference in her overall well-being. Nyla waits three more years to add a third layer of journal entries, revealing healing through time—the process, the cycles, the setbacks, and the triumphs. In this memoir, Nyla drops any cloaks of shame within her for the sake of truth as she poetically details experiences such as: loving a toxic person; struggling with depression, anxiety, and with stigma; being suicidal; catharsis; and the building of self-love in order to overcome it all. Through deeply personal and honest prose and poetry, Inside Out offers an exploration of self and meaning in life.

About the Author

Nyla Verity is a Nationally Certified Counselor, a member of NAMI, and has struggled for most of her life personally with PTSD, Depression, and Anxiety. She writes memoirs as a mixture of deeply personal and honest prose and poetry. The result is always a spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings that connects and often causes healing waves of emotion to wash over her readers. She wants to connect. She wants readers to agree not to judge her and not to judge themselves. She wants readers to learn to love and understand themselves by witnessing her own commitment to self-love amongst so much inner and outer chaos and turmoil. She is undeterred by fear when it comes to revealing herself and her life to others, and she does it with great love, beauty, and integrity.
