Oxymoronics : Collected Contradictions

Published: 2018
Pages: 53
Key Themes: Mental Health, Poetry, Human Nature


In this book, Carrie’s writings embody this mystery of our lives as a living paradox. Her keen insight into what it is to be human holds the dialectic tension of this struggle in balance; just as you find yourself hurtling down a cul de sac of the impossible and a full stop, you realise that the full stop is actually a comma!

About the Author

Carrie was treated with electro-convulsive therapy after asking for gender confirmation surgery at the age of 17. She ran away from a large mental hospital having been put on anti-psychotic medication and offered aversion ‘therapy’. Accepting medical misinformation that an ulcerative condition ruled out ever being able to have corrective surgery, she embraced her fate which more than returned her embrace with beautiful children, lifelong love, a successful career in the NHS in mental health, and wonderful friends. She has had books and academic papers and book chapters published and sat for some years as an independent member on the editorial board of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. But all that is mere blah compared to the deep and true existential happiness she gets from the magic of relating to and with others.
