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.”

About the Author

Poetry that translates the language and spirit of the unconscious as it
transforms pain and suffering into hope.

Dr. Sunita Merriman has spent over the past two decades as a health care professional dedicated to treating her patients with the belief that the mind, body and soul are connected.

Now she embarks on a deeply personal journey to unmask, understand and defeat the darkness that is the legacy of trauma from childhood adverse experiences and trans-generational wounds.

As one of the many rewards of her journey, she discovers that Self Love and Self Care First is the only way for us to live a life of joy, fulfil our potential, realize our destiny and most importantly, to selflessly serve others.

Sunita’s narrative of her fight to find herself is nakedly honest, achingly beautiful and excruciatingly painful. Her unconscious leads the way to places that are frightening, dangerous and normally inaccessible. Her spirit bravely battles the destructive forces that we all encounter.

She shares a no-holds-barred account of a grueling and raw battle that is at times tough to read. Yet you will find it impossible to look away, and will be compelled to keep turning the pages until you get to the last poem.

Stripping- My Fight to Find Me is now available on Amazon, in book stores and from the publisher Balboa Press
