Jenny tells a surprisingly humorous version of her life dealing with multiple disorders, phobias and illnesses (both physical and mental). She has been given the short end of the stick as far as being inundated with debilitating symptoms from depression, rheumatoid arthritis, anxiety disorder, etc. She’s been given more than her fair share of difficulties, but she also has been blessed with a brilliant mind and an incredibly unique sense of humor.
I love how her relationship with her husband, Victor, is represented. They are an awesome pairing. He is the Oliver Hardy to her Stan Laurel (at least as evidenced in this telling). Although, on her good days, her energy might be exhausting to keep up with, she would be such a hoot and a joy to know.
With her gift and skill at writing, she has found a way to use the good and the bad in her own life to help others.
And suddenly we realize that the things we were ashamed of are the same things everyone deals with at one time or another. We are so much less alone than we think.
Although this book does deal with a very serious topic, it is written in a way which is educational and compassionate but also makes you laugh out loud–often.
