Ten Minutes PDF
by Alice Kuipers
At eighteen, award-winning young adult author Alice Kuipers suffered from a debilitating panic disorder. The attacks would come on quickly and stop just as suddenly, leaving her with a pounding heart, an empty stomach and an overwhelming sense of dread.
By the time Kuipers leaves her London home to backpack around the world, herpanic attacks are occurring frequently, and they chase her as she travels through San Francisco, New Zealand and Bangkok. Kuipers tries to escape them, but no matter how many times she climbs mountains, kisses boys, or jumps from planes, the panic attacks keep pace — until she discovers that language has the power to set her free.
Ten Minutes is the raw, beautiful story of a young woman’s journey towards self-awareness and wellness.
