Waiting for minimum critic reviews


What do the doctors at her work know about this nurse anesthetist that she doesn’t even know herself? Some of them know that she’s on a broken path of a disease that nobody talked about -it’s implications are just that dreadful. But she’s on a journey that no one could foresee. And her way of looking at the disease would shed a whole new light on the situation.
It’s a true story of one person having all the cards stacked against her but beating all the odds instead. All but a few physicians have written her off, but she fights for her life in the most desperate of ways. It would take her a while to understand why they won’t fix it and when she does, nothing would prepare her for what she learns about her own medical crises and that of her family’s.
In her autobiographical account, you’ll also learn some important information that should be on your radar next time you see your doctor. Even though it can now be fixed, you’ll learn why the medical profession doesn’t necessarily want you to know about it. Everyone becomes a patient at some point in their life. Be informed and maybe even be a couple steps ahead of your doctor.

I've worked in the health care profession for 25 years, the last 10 years as a nurse anesthetist. I have a bachelor of science in nursing and a masters degree in nurse anesthesia. I've had years of working and training with the airway, the very crux of the disease I talk about in this story. With all my work experience, nothing would prepare me for the day that I would uncover the web of deceit and trauma within my own medical history and that of my family's. And once that revelation came, I would look at the situation with enlightened eyes-a way of looking at the disease that only I could see.Look through the eyes of this provider and patient and read about how much hope there is out there from the youngest victims of this disease to the oldest. Read why the medical profession doesn't necessarily want you to know about it and learn about the dysfunction which exists within the system. It can quite literally affect your life.
