Love Sick: One Woman's Journey Through Sexual Addiction
In this powerful memoir, a woman learns to value herself--as a whole person rather than as a sexual object. Sue William Silverman tells of her roller-coaster life of sex and self-destructive behavior. Finally, addicted to danger itself, she seeks the help of a trusted therapist to discover what love really means.
