Check It Out: Soul Survivor

Soul Survivor by Philippa West 

This is a true autobiography and covers my battle through mental health issues. This book was written from my heart and soul. I know that it has been hard for those closest to me to understand what happened and how my dreams were shattered time after time.

Writing this book hurt a lot but it helped to heal my wounds. It is very graphic and emotionally charged in places - it has to be, so that, hopefully it will help others. When you feel that you are at your lowest ebb, and you cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel, only then can you start rebuilding your life and grow stronger day by day.

Soul Survivor is a powerful story. A word of caution - this may be difficult for some people to read because of the nature of the content. Although at times it's hard to follow the flow, it doesn't make the story any less strong. As a survivor, I know it's not easy to talk about what you've been through, much less share it with the world. It's definitely emotionally charged, and more so if you've survived trauma of a similar nature or struggled with mental illness. Good read.
