As I was feeling very sorry for myself after finding out one of my sister's was recently diagnosed with H.D.,( our mother had passed away 6-1/2 years ago from it, 3 uncles, a grandmother, and great grandmother prior to that). I have always known that it would eventually catch up to my siblings and I; and when Diane was diagnosed it really felt tooooooo close to home. I picked this book out and cried as I read the beginning, but I really felt like I was not as alone in the world as I felt. She is an awesome writer, and I am so thankful to her for the words she put together. Carmen2
