Send this book to your doctor!
Many people are unaware how hard it is to live with a disease, or live with someone with a disease that has no cure. I was one of those. My mother was diagnosed with lupus 30 years ago and is still fighting today. Although I have been with her every step of the way, it is still difficult to understand unless you are in their shoes. This book lets you peek into the mind of a person who has a cureless disease. She doesn't glitter it up, rather she drags you through the trenches with her and lets you in to the secret hell in which the patient sometimes resides. The doctors viewpoint along with the patients allows you to see the conversation and how each perspective is. I highly reccomend all patients with an incurable disease read this and send a copy to their doctors because more ofthen than not, they have no idea what you are going through.Was this review helpful?

Dancing at the River's Edge
As a woman who has struggled with several autoimmune diseases throughout my life, I was eager to see a book about another woman and her story.
I was more intrigued by the physician's prospective than the patient's. It was somewhat of a disappointment learning that they are friends as well as doctor/patient.
I was left wanting more...there really is no end to the story. However, it was a relief and a satisfaction that others have essentially played out my life, and can unstand what it's like to live with pain and uncertainty.
