KEURIUM Trigger Guide
While many readers have reported that KEURIUM has helped them heal, certain content might be triggering for some. This guide is for wannabe readers who are nervous about certain themes and depictions shifting their emotional balance. While it contains spoilers, it should allow people with trauma sensitivities to enjoy the rest of its contents pertaining to adoption’s identity erasure, being raised in racial isolation, escaping narcissists, gaslighting, and the healing journey. Below is an outline of chapters you might want to consider. Out of 90 short chapters written as vignettes, I’ve flagged the following 13.
