I pout and complain and drink a lot of tea and tinker with spreadsheets and annoy my cats and bake things. Then my husband reminds me that writing is writing so then I write about how annoyed I am with writer's block. And then I work out and take a nap. And then, eventually, it just passes.(less)

I have yet to get paid for it, though, so my writing schedule, although unstructured, is not all of my time. The absolute best thing will be when I can have it be all of my time.

“Lydia Slaby's story is unique and very personal, but the life lessons she learned in the years after getting a cancer diagnosis at 33—about happiness and health, fulfillment and failure, resilience and change—are universal. Tender, funny, and deeply uplifting, WAIT, IT GETS WORSE is about more than facing the unexpected; it’s an everywoman’s guide to living a life that matters.”
Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global

“It was Lydia’s GI Jane buzz cut and soldier spirit that captivated me when we first met—and she’s just as captivating on the page. WAIT, IT GETS WORSE is a book for discovering, for learning to let go, for laughing and crying and laughing again. It’s a book for anyone who’s ever asked, ‘Am I enough?’ And it’s a book that answers, ‘Yes. Yes you are.”
Sophia Bush, Actress and Activist

Beth Comstock
“Lydia Slaby shows that the power to change is within every one of us—once we give up the illusion of control. We don't control much of anything in life, but we do control how we react to change. You'll cry, you'll laugh, you'll cheer her on, but mostly you'll realize what it means to live a life fully in control of your true self. Lydia's story points the way.”
Beth Comstock, Author of IMAGINE IT FORWARD & former Vice Chair, GE

“Lydia has detailed with such authenticity something that so many of us struggle with—control—and the misnomer that we actually have it. This powerful memoir shows us a path for potential transformation in our own lives and I am grateful that she has shared her journey with the hope of impacting others. The optimism that jumps off the page is infectious.”
Doug Ulman, President and CEO of Pelotonia and former President and CEO of LiveSTRONG
