I Want Out: Go No Contact From Toxic Parents, Keep It That Way And Heal From The Narcissistic Abuse

I’m a psychologist and also a former victim of narcissistic abuse, and with this book I’m trying to raise awareness of what I think is the big pandemic of the 21st century: narcissistic personality disorder. The book is designed to help people who is about to go no contact (which is a usual last resort, extreme measure that a victims of narcissists are often forced to take after some time of living with them; a measure in many things akin to leaving a cult), but it can be of interest also for general public, as an educational work.

The House On Dogbone St.: The Story Of A Resilient Woman Who Overcomes Limitations, Breaks Generational Abuses And Ultimately Triumphs

In The House on Dogbone St., Julia Duthie takes us on a walk through the tumultuous life she was destined to endure.The feeling of treading on eggshells for the little girl who had no choice but to navigate one of the most dreadful paths that life could offer, displaying her resilience and go-getter attitude no matter what obstacle was thrown her way, is fascinating. We cannot blame her for being naive in some circumstances as the two people meant to protect her were in a world of their own. One, in a depressive trance, while the other was never fully present.

However, from start to end, her story is a lesson for every one of us. Ignorance takes no blame in this journey as Julia made the best of what she had and what she thought to be right. It is the advantage taken by elders and those who camouflaged their real personas that are the actual culprits of a life filled with scars at every turn. How she turned those dents into beautiful blooms is the intrigue of it all. Walk her path through this great rendition to encounter neighbours and teachers who stood in the shadows and shed a slight reflexion of hope toward her direction, never knowing how much it would finally mean to her and what she would eventually become.

Although it is a triumph to be celebrated, the unwelcome demons she collected along the way sometimes threaten to manifest themselves and take her back to a state of defeat. But will she follow suit? Find out in her extraordinary memoir.


Meet Julia Duthie

Julia lives in Surrey with her two children, her partner Kathryn and her Beagle, Brodie. Over the years, she has both built and led numerous businesses, has been an artist and nurtured other artists in the competitive world of the music industry. She has also had the privilege of living and working in the US and India. Given she started her career at a local leisure centre; a job she took in order to use its laundry facilities to wash her own clothes, her origin story is something of an enigma.
