Editorial Reviews

David Lechuga, Ph.D., ABPP, APN
I consider this essential reading, and plan to have my students and junior colleagues read this book. There is so much helpful information to be had in a text that can only be written from a personal perspective. Kay's book will help decrease the confusion and frustration experienced by many, as they try to adjust to the realities of their new lives. Her writing is clear and her suggested tips are invaluable."

    Very Highly Recommended Reading

    This book is not only very useful it is uplifting and very inspirational. The author defines every aspect within the healing process on such a personal enlighting level. Having known friends who have had serious accidents I highly recommend this novel. Deals with the healing process as well as what to expect from your new journey. Very touching and uplifting from a one on one point of view. Step by step personal inncentives on the healing process helped me to understand and help my friend with their journey and recovery. Truly inspirational. A must have for those on the road to recovery or for their loved ones to truly understand the healing process. Brillant piece of literature I will treasure always!
