If you want to read a true tale of horror this season, follow author Pookie Sekmet on her journey and struggle through our toxic world in her book, Sensitive. PLUS – she is hosting a giveaway on Goodreads right now! – GOODREADS GIVEAWAY –
Honestly, if we truly think about our way of life in this day in age, we are basically poisoning ourselves on a day to day basis without much thought. Simple changes in our lives can lessen these exposures and add thoughtfulness to our health. That wasn’t the case for Pookie in the beginning. In her memoir, she digs deep into her family history to uncover a specific event that triggered an illness that still effects her today.
In her story she lets us hang along on the journey with her to find the truth as well as how she lives now and the importance of avoiding toxic chemicals. The path that led her to the event when she was younger is a path of family trauma and mysterious chronic health struggles. We follow her as she builds an unconventional new life; and, “finally, becomes a whistle-blower within a corrupt and patriarchal corporate culture.”
There is good information here, the book will make you think. I personally have prior knowledge to some of what the author talks about, but was surprised to learn of what happened to her when she was younger, the event that caused a chain reaction that will follow her though the rest of her lifetime.
