Even though Stripping- My fight to find Me brings to life the author’s experience, it is a story of many of us, those who suffer and those who feel shame.
Sunita’s poems will push you to ask questions of yourself. The ferociousness of her battle will give you an exhilarating rush and invigorate you. Her struggle and victory to give herself permission to love herself and seek a life of joy will inspire you. Her discovery that we may be broken, but we are not victims, will empower you.
Stripping - My Fight to Find Me is a story of the triumph of the human spirit. It is a story of our deep need for connection and the infinite power of love to heal.
“I am overwhelmed by the emotion and vivid imagery that Dr. Sunita Merriman has revealed in this remarkable book. Her openness, her intelligence, her willingness to bare her deepest thoughts and feelings- they almost make me want to look away at times. But of course, I cannot. And equally, I will read it again and again, taking new meaning and probing my own inner thoughts at a fresh level with each poem. It is a stunning achievement.”
