Having lived with chronic illness (without diagnosis and without any answers on how far into the future it could be expected to continue) I actually dropped a note to the author after reading this book. I thanked her for writing it. I really appreciated the author doesn't take a "pollyanna" approach to discussing her drastic life change from being on the way to a concert pianist and stopped in the middle by a "mysterious muscle disorder." The author is honest in discussing all elements of her disability and new life...both the negative and the positive. I found this a powerful as well as inspiring read.
