Someone who never saw it coming, I became ill with chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia in 1988. Since then I have "aquired" several auto-immune disorders as well as non-Hodgkin lymphoma, i.e., cancer. Naturally, I lost a lot of function and have had to redefine my life - it can be done.

I've learned and re-learned how to be happy in spite of this frustrating, confusing and non-linear path and I present that to you in my book, My Own Medicine. I hope my personal journey will help readers come to terms and fill the parts of themselves that have been emptied by illness with a gladness and gratitude that life does go on.
