In 1982, Gari Carter's old life abruptly ended. A headon car crash destroyed much of her face. Ahead were almost ten years of operations that gradually rebuilt her jaws, cheekbones, nose, and gums. Ahead lay months of helplessness, pain, anxiety, and depression. Ahead lay overwhelming fear of pain. But ahead lay much more.
Healing Myself is the story of one woman's successful battle to rise above pain and despair. But it's about more than pain. It's about the elation she felt as she gained control of her suffering. It's about the lessons she learned from hard experiencelessons in patience, love, and proper priorities.
Perhaps most astoundingly, it's about her discovery of a series of commerciallyproduced audio paincontrol tapes that changed her multiplehour operations from ordeals to be dreaded into challenges to be met calmly and confidentlywithout anesthetics!
