But itís your family

But It's Your Family...: Cutting Ties with Toxic Family Members and Loving Yourself in the Aftermath https://www.amazon.com/dp/1642790990/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_.ujdDbW408GGN

I found this book very interesting. A clinical psychologist writes about her lived experience of growing up with PD parents and subsequent no contact. Validating, helpful and powerful.
Has anyone else read it?
I could not put it down on my first quick read and am now going through it again more slowly.

I had never heard of it, but Just downloaded the free sample of it and will definitely buy it. It's really well written so far, and nice to have a psychologist talking from personal experience as well as giving her clinical insight. Thanks, doglady!!

Good to hear others here have got something out of this book.
And yeah, Nano, Iím still alive and kicking in these weird times. Canít say Iíve minded social distancing at all (wrt to reducing the possibility of fending off unwanted family visits).
Hope you find the book useful. Would be interested to hear your thoughts when youíve finished it.  :)
