Product Description Anya Michaels is having the time of her life. She has the man of her dreams by her side. She has graduated at the top of her class. She has the job others were lining up for. Between late night drinks at her favourite bar and fancy dinners at the most expensive restaurants, she has a string of adoring friends. Everything changes when she hears the dreaded words, "You are sick." Being diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder, her world starts to fall apart, one piece at a time. Now dumped, her four year relationship is nothing but a memory filled with pictures, thoughts and a very broken heart. Her job becomes an even further challenge as she tries to hide her condition. Her friends suddenly have more important things to do, what is a party without a party girl? Perfect could not crumble any faster. Soon, caught between situations, people and pieces of life that she never dreamed of planning for herself, Anya begins to wonder if her brain condition is all that bad. As she absorbs the changes in her life and realization sets in, she begins to wonder if she is the only one saying: Excuse Me, My Brains Have Stepped Out
This book is a personal purging of fears, wishes and loneliness. Anya Michaels has been diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder. She copes by writing letters to her long absent father. The letters/diary consists of her insights into life.
Pandora Poikolos is the voice of Anya. She introduces to us a woman who captivates and enchants us with her insights into human nature. Imagine being diagnosed with a rare disorder. What becomes important in your life? What becomes unnecessary? Anya's journey is full of pain and wonder. I was laughing and crying along with her.
I recommend this book to others. Especially, but definitely not limited to, those going through life changing journeys.
