How would you like to be unable to speak intelligibly? How would you enjoy having an awkward gait that makes you prone to falling and causes people to stare as you shuffle by? Living with dystonia is not something I would have chosen for myself. To tell the truth, what I really long for is normalcy. Better yet, I'd like to go away somewhere and not take myself with me! Wherever I go, people are always telling me that I am an inspiration. This makes me feel like a total fraud, because to my mind I'm just doing what I have to do to drag myself out of bed every morning and face another day of humiliation and challenges.

But then again, I could have made the choice to just stay in bed and pull the covers over my head and never get up, so I suppose the fact that I do get up day after day could be seen as a source of inspiration. Honestly, being put on an "inspiration pedestal" can be somewhat isolating. But if others are inspired by me, I consider it an honor. I do hope that this book heartens all those who have been tested by God through a disability. I fervently believe that, with faith, courage, and fortitude, you can live a fulfilling life full of happiness, blessings, and contentment.

This is how it can be done.

this book includes 16 pages of photographs of the author's life.
