From my review on HealthCentral.com:
“There are several new voices about living with chronic illness: Jenni's Chronic Babe, Kris's Crazy Sexy Cancer, and Laurie Edwards author of Life Disrupted: Getting Real about Chronic Illness in your Twenties and Thirties...Edwards has written a roadmap to what her life has been like with serious ailments that had no clear diagnosis until she was finally diagnosed with Primary ciliary dyskinesia or PCD in 2003 along with celiac disease.
Her book, Life Disrupted: Getting Real about Chronic Illness in your Twenties and Thirties is organized in three vital sections: medical life, public life and personal life. Edwards tackles each of these sections with compassion, courage, humor and a lifetime of real world experience. She's learned solid lessons about being the best advocate for your health; not letting illness and disease define you; and how "[b]eing well means being able to find a place for chronic illness within the context of our relationships and our professional lives, not at the expense of them."
