Description


Don't Expect Me To Cry is a powerful story of the horrors Janet experienced at the hands of multiple abusers, including her father, and the courageous journey of healing that brought her to a life that is inspirational to other survivors.

Janet's resilience is evident as she tells her story in three parts, reflecting her thoughts and experiences at critical stages of her life.

Don't Expect Me To Cry - Starting with a child's view of shocking abuse, Janet shares how she had to build defenses to survive the impact of the horrors of her childhood.

Don't Expect Me To Lie - Continuing with her journey through early therapy, Janet describes the pain and fear she experienced as she started to share the 'secret'.

Don't Expect Me To Die - The final part tells how Janet hit 'rock bottom' and tried to end her life. She explains how, from that place of despair, she learned that it is possible to heal from the dark shame and trauma and live a steadier and more content life.
