It's Published! My new book, Surviving Lupus, Levaquin, & Life, is ready for purchase on Amazon in paperback form! The ebook should be available in several days, and both will be also be available through my website within the next week. Beginning with “In June of 2019, I danced again…”, this 2nd and greatly expanded edition of my first book, Praying Through Pliés, continues my journey towards reinvention after a frightening and devastating reaction in 2015 to the fluoroquinolone antibiotic, Levaquin. With new information, new insights, and forgotten pieces and memories from the first 2 years, the focus of this book remains on the transformative and healing power of faith, gratitude, and positive thinking. Questions and worksheets for self-reflection or group discussion have been added, and the original sections on nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress management remain. At the request of readers, several stories from the first book have been expanded. Remember Dea, my dearly loved cousin, and JB, my therapy cat from my first book? For those who wanted to know more, I think your heart will be touched by their stories in Surviving Lupus, Levaquin, & Life! For anyone who has ever dealt with loss, illness, or who simply wants to improve his or her life, this book offers hope and inspiration! To my readers who embraced my first book and encouraged me to write my second, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and hope you will continue to share my journey. I believe that both you and new readers will love this book, and I am anxious to hear from each of you!
