Item description for Secret Scars: One Woman's Story of Overcoming Self-Harm by Abigail Robson...

From five years old, Abbie didn't know who she was supposed to be. To deal with her lack of identity she turned to self-harm, using it as a form of control. Eventually she began the painstaking process of stopping her behavior and discovering who she was in Christ. This honest account shows how difficult it is to be a Christian who is struggling, and that healing is something that happens throughout a Christian's life, as you grow in God.

Publishers Description
From five years old, Abbie didn't know who she was supposed to be. To deal with her lack of identity she turned to self-harm, using it as a form of control. Eventually she began the painstaking process of stopping her behavior and discovering who she was in Christ. In her stark autobiography Abigail Robson deals with the delicate and often misunderstood issues of self harm, bulimia and anorexia.Dispelling the often held belief that cutting is purely attention seeking behaviour the book offers first hand insight into the torment which many people suffer in an attempt to cope with the reality of everyday day life. Robson is disarmingly honest at times as she takes the reader through her journey through self hatred, insecurity and desire for control to forgiveness, acceptance and ultimate freedom through Christ. Abigail offers hope without trivializing the immense struggles involved in breaking free from this desperate, lonely and destructive cycle.

Reviews - What do customers think about Secret Scars?

Brought Comfort and Understanding  Jun 5, 2008
Up front, I have to tell that I bought this book for a friend, not for myself, so I have not personally read it (that's why I left off a star); but I want to say here why I chose it and how much good it has done my friend.

After reading it she told me how much it helped her to read the story of someone who was struggling so honestly with the same issues she is. Abigail does not sugar-coat her struggle, nor does she oversimply the answer. That was my main concern when I was considering purchasing it. I did not want another book that simply said, "Love Jesus and everything will be okay." I am a born-again Christian, but I know that life's problems don't necessarily disappear because I profess faith in Christ. My friend knows this also and I care about her too much to offer something trite or full of platitudes.

This book was a good answer to that - someone honest enough to say I'm still struggling with this, but here is what my journey has been and here is how I've found the strength to carry on. Now, that is something worth reading about, and reading this helped my friend put some of her pain into words and take another step down a good road to recovery.
dissapointed thouroughly  May 7, 2008
as a recovered cutter, i awaited this book with great anticipation. unfortunately it anticipation turned to great dissapointment when i read this book. the author is a christian and although i am not very religous, this would not have botherd me had she not gone into great lengths about her faith. it totally alienated me from the author and her struggles, and what really made my blood boil was at the end the author didnt acredit her recovery to the countless hours of therapy or the network of support she had, but stated her recovery was beacuse of god. now i have suffered sever depression, substance abuse and cutting from the ages of 13-21 and i think the reason why i got better was all the therapy, help and hospital stays i had. ultimately i made it my goal to get better, and with all the tools mentioned above, i managed to do it. but it was through sheer hard, sometimes agonising work. i think it is dangerous to send out the msg that if u pray, then it will all go away. however, if u r a christian then u will probably like this book - it just completely alienated me because i thought the authors faith was getting shoved down my throat.
