it was amazing

“A Giggle More, Cry Less” is exactly what this book brought to the table. In Yvonne deSousa’s account of her ups and downs dealing with multiple sclerosis, her outlook was one of humor through a difficult transition.

Although Yvonne holds nothing back, and she allows you to laugh along with her. While realizing what her undiagnosed symptoms finally meant after many years of struggling; she allows you to be a part of her life and her new experiences.

Yvonne was able to convey how some people view someone who is struggling through a debilitating illness. If she hid it people didn’t help. If she told them, they would tell her “don’t play the MS card”. Her struggles are real, not just in her mind. I was able to relate to her and felt like I was right with her dealing with all she had to go through. When an author makes you feel like you are in the story; you know they have written in a way that makes you want to help them in their fight.

Excessive sleeping, depression, and all of the other battles that come along with MS, Yvonne shows you how she dealt with it with her humor and drive. When most people would have given in; Yvonne triumphs and shows you that there is life with MS.

Whether you are dealing with a debilitating illness or going through a tough time in your life; Yvonne will help you remember that things could be worse. Even on her worst day; she moves ahead and shows you that not even MS will stop her, even if it takes her a few times to do so.

I enjoyed this book and am Thankful that Yvonne allowed us to take a peek into her life.
