What My Bones Know: A Memoir of Healing from Complex Trauma – by Stephanie Woo

What My Bones Know

By age thirty, Stephanie Foo was successful. She had her dream job as an award-winning radio producer and a loving boyfriend. But behind her office door, she was having panic attacks and sobbing at her desk every morning. After years of questioning what was wrong with herself, she was diagnosed with complex PTSD—a condition that occurs when trauma happens continuously, over the course of years.

Powerful, enlightening, and hopeful, What My Bones Know is a beautifully written, searingly honest memoir that reckons with the hold of the past over the present, the mind over the body—and examines one woman’s ability to reclaim agency from her childhood trauma
