Comes the Darkness, Comes the Light: A Memoir of Cutting, Healing, and Hope by Vanessa Vega depicts one woman's story of a life lost and then regained. Offering hope and agonizingly hard-won insight to others battling this painful disorder, it is a chilling look at the destructive power of the human mind, and an unprecedented account of the tragic results of self-mutilation. In the end, it is a testament to the incredible power of the desire to live, and to the endless strength available to all of us-even in our very darkest hour. Vanessa Leigh Vega, M.S. is a high school English teacher and motivational speaker.
