A child of a heart wrenching divorce – a tale of creativity, happiness and longing for when things were perfect, cozy and comfy. She takes a journey; leaving the warm cocoon of a small town to the big city of Toronto where she gets lost in rave land, drug addiction, prostitution, psych wards and failed relationships. The light in the pool tells a story of searching for clarity and inner peace from complex post traumatic stress disorder (it’s in debate in the mental health world that complex PTSD is the same thing as borderline personality disorder), addiction, an eating disorder and suicidal depression. A different kind of memoir that includes photos, art, journal entries, poems and total documentation of this journey to happiness and connecting with the inner child she left behind and healing from a flashback-triggered-memory-meltdown.
