    Very good book. It gives hope that a loved one can eventually accept what has happened to them and begin to make sense of it and manage symptoms with support from professionals, friends and family. It’s a life long journey, but we can’t give up hope. Personal accounts like this one do a lot to help during the early stages of adjustment. Thank you for writing it.
