520 Barbara is a survivor of family violence, incest, and
rape. She has been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress
Disorder and Bipolar Disorder and was declared permanently
disabled since May 2007 by the Social Security
Administration. Through personal stories, reflection, and
poems, Barbara illuminates the many challenges she has
faced while working through issues such as hypervigilance,
low self-esteem, poor body image, bulimia, and alcoholism.
In her collection, Barbara shares with us her experience

her path of healing from trauma. Her goal is to help other

Barbara's message is one of perseverance, courage, and
hope. She offers the reader a glimpse into how she has
discovered her inner warrior, learned to work through her
fears, and strengthen her spirit as she strives to live an
