My Battle With the Invisible Disability of Lyme DiseaseBook - 2017 | First edition
'In early 2011, Yolanda Hadid was struck by mysterious symptoms including brain fog, severe exhaustion, migraines, and more. Over the months and years that followed, she went from being an outspoken, multitasking hands-on mother of three, reality TV star, and social butterfly, to a woman who spent most of her time in bed. Yolanda was turned inside out by some of the country's top hospitals and doctors, but due to the lack of definitive diagnostic testing, she landed in a dark maze of conflicting medical opinions, where many were quick to treat her symptoms but could never provide clear answers as to their causes. In this moving, behind-the-scenes memoir, Yolanda opens up in a way she has never been able to in the media before. Suffering from late-state Lyme disease...Yolanda had to fight with everything she had to hold on to her life. While her struggle was lived publicly, it impacted her privately in every aspect of her existence...With candor, authenticity, and unwavering inner strength, Yolanda reveals intimate details of her journey crisscrossing the world to find answers for herself and two of her children who also suffer from Lyme." -- Jacket.
