In a state where “majority rules” does not mean a state of democracy, a girl breaks all of the major rules, most significantly her own. In Sacrificing Safety, author Aeon Sage narrates her life story against the backdrop of the rules she believes she has broken—relating to sex, drugs, abortion, obsessions, and irrational reasoning. In this memoir, she shows how she sacrifices her safety in exchange for experiences that lead her to appreciate life more than she could imagine.
A collection of journal entries and poems, Sacrificing Safety provides a glimpse into the mind of someone diagnosed with bipolar disorder. It tells how Sage coped with life’s twists and turns and how she transformed these trials and tribulations into positive lessons. It documents her journey from girl to woman—to professional writer, professional caregiver, professional wife, and professional woman.
Covering sensitive personal issues, Sacrificing Safety shares the best and worst moments of Sage’s life as she makes sense of who she is.
