My Book

Rising from the Abyss Book Cover My book, Rising from the Abyss: My Journey into and out of Chronic Illness, is a memoir that weaves together my critical life experiences as I move from peak health into debilitating, nearly fatal chronic illness and back to vibrant health again.

The first chapter opens with me debilitated in my bedroom and having reached the last straw as my pain and suffering have destroyed my will to fight and I decide there’s no point in continuing to live.

The book weaves together the many complicated threads of my journey to find my true destiny in life, enduring the loss of my parents, and then succumbing to a terrible, rare, auto-immune illness called Mixed Connective Tissue Disorder.  I submitted to the harsh cycle of Western drug’s for a time, before I decided to embark on my own healing journey using alternative medicine.
