Overview

This book is a synopsis of many medical stories. They include, but are not limited to rude personnel, kind personnel and many of the physical and emotional traumas that a patient and his or her family face during an illness.

Illness is enough to deal with on its own, but as many find out the hard way, there can be so much more to contend with. Slow diagnosing, doubtful doctors and harsh criticism from those who are clueless are among some of the ordeals covered.

It was difficult for me to live life outside of my chronic illness. My main symptom, or most obvious was fainting. I didn't think much of it at first. I knew it needed to be checked out, but thought it would be under control in little time. The surprises to me were outsiders who actually laughed when I dropped, adults as well as children: the most hurtful was the handful of family and friends who thought I was faking. I can't imagine judging any of them in that way.

I hope this book touches the lives of those who read it no matter if you are the care giver or the patient or just an innocent bystander.
