It was 1981-the year life blew up in eighteen-year-old Leslie J. Hollis' face. She couldn't get out of bed in the morning, and she cried all the time. If she had had the guts, she would have ended her life numerous times. The hurt and sense of worthlessness paled in comparison to death. It was also the year she met Kara, a talented psychotherapist.
Hollis knew life was not supposed to be characterized by constant pain, a longing to be accepted, and anxiety and worries that made it difficult to function. She was a ticking time bomb, imploding with distress. In "The Bedroom without a Door," Hollis shares the powerful life story of a young girl in search of her true self. She tells how she revisited the pain and isolation of her childhood to unlock the mysteries of the feelings she so desperately needed to escape from.
In "The Bedroom without a Door," Hollis helps those who feel vulnerable and defenseless and who have no sense of self. She shares how anxiety and pain, although overwhelming at times, can be confronted and treated. Depression and eating disorders can become a part of the past; a rebirth to a new, more productive life awaits. Learn to get out of bed every day and live, love, and laugh.

"I can write you silly poems and fill mirrors with erotic odes." Poetry from the Bedroom Mirror is a collection of poems written by Chris Linville for Lisa. Some of his poems were written on paper or the inside of a card, but most were penned using dry-erase markers on our bedroom and bathroom mirrors. Written over the span of about six years or so, these poems played an important role in our relationship. Every poem touched my heart, and many touched other parts of my body, see Chapter Four. Chris' poetry is my most cherished possession and will soon be one of your favorite poetry books.
