Book Summary

Book Summary ** Our lives, after the diagnosis and subsequent treatment, of my husband for a brain tumor, clearly have taken a path less traveled. Yet our journey has and continues to be, a journey of hope, joy and of unyeilding commitment. We invite you into our lives, a view of our childhood, marriage, a marriage seperate from convention, yet strongly bound. Join us as we recall the last twenty-five years, twenty of which have been spent LIVING with a brain tumor. Come, witness our challenges and discover our triumphs as we reinvent our relationship, struggle to redefine marriage roles, communication styles, and reclaim intimacy after illness.

Finding hope and happiness through adversity by making it REAL

This was the title of the presention I did for the Whole Health Expo this past weekend.  I shared my model for dealing with adversity using exerpts from the book. 
Real = make the adversitiy real by confronting and naming the stress you are confronting.
Enlightened = understand the situation and seek to improve it
Attitude = the one thing in your life you have control of
Love life = find happiness
