Do you ever wonder what it takes to save your own life? Your own sanity? Or just yourself from the ridiculousness of a crazy day?
While my story began as the search for a physical cure from Lyme disease; it turned out to be so much more. It turned out to be about life--how we get through when it seems impossible, and even find some humor in it all.
This Is How I Save My Life: From California to India, a True Story of Finding Everything When You Are Willing To Try Anything ... will help you discover who you really are. It'll also make you laugh.
And I promise you'll learn very important things, too. Like, how chocolate cake might help you keep the faith, why telling yourself the truth is more important than anything else, and also ... the best way to outrun a group of schoolboys in India if you're ever mistaken for the pop singer Shakira like I was!
