    Scher's book is inspiring, engrossing, and a wonderful read. As someone who has dealt with invisible illness for a long time, I related to so much of her story. The travel aspect also provides the armchair reader with an in-depth look at living in Delhi, which I found fascinating as we...

    I have followed Amy's work for the past 7 years and I found this to be her best writing yet. She is far enough on the other side of her health challenges to write about her journey with humor, perspective and earned wisdom. An inspiring memoir, I quickly devoured this page turner in tw...

    Loved this book. Whether you have dealt with chronic illness or know someone struggling with chronic illness, I'd say it's a must-read. Filled with the real deal. <3 ...

    Scher's book is inspiring, engrossing, and a wonderful read. As someone who has dealt with invisible illness for a long time, I related to so much of her story. The travel aspect also provides the armchair reader with an in-depth look at living in Delhi, which I found fascinating as we...

    You'd be surprised by the amount of humor a woman as sick as Amy was able to find as she struggled with Lyme disease. This really is an inspiring book--about doing what you need to do for yourself, about pushing through pain and the little and big discomforts of life and travel and fam...

    Amy Scher had a severe case of Lyme disease that left her in a lot of pain, with poor balance, and with an immune system so weak doctors were afraid a cold could kill her. In an effort to treat her disease, she reaches out to a doctor in India who is doing treatment with stem cells. I ...

    From Lilac Wolf and Stuff The book is brilliant. I'm in awe of this woman who spent so long losing a battle with Lyme Disease. She went to India for stem cell treatment. The stem cells used, are from a single embryo that was donated to the doctor from a couple who had embryos made u...

    I must say that this is not my usual genre of literature, but Thank You Goodreads for the ARC. I personally suffer from Trigeminal Neuralgia (a chronic illness) so reading Amy's story about advanced late-stage Lyme disease and her battle to travel across the United States to end up on ...

    I bought this book hoping to gain some insight into dealing more successfully with chronic Lyme disease. I was not disappointed. I was inspired by Amy Scher's determination to do whatever it took to get well. It took her a while to embrace her Indian doctor's belief that she had the po...

    The New Eat, Pray, Love! This book is quite simply a must read. It's a hugely inspirational and uplifting story but not in the usual sappy way you might expect-which makes it even better. Amy's voice is so unique-she'll make you laugh out loud and wipe away a tear in the same paragr...

    The author's journey of illness (Lyme Disease) and healing is sparely and beautifully written. This book is heartening and thought-provoking for anyone whose sense of self is shaken by circumstance---not just Lyme Disease and not just illness. ...

    I related to the stories since I accompanied my husband on a journey to the same clinic in India. Amy tells it like it is with humor, love and hope. ...

    Quite good. Q: In the past, I would have been more self-conscious about something like this, but some of my modesty has faded. Now I look at my body and I think, I cannot believe it has survived so much. This perspective is a beautiful thing. I wish I had found it earlier than now. (...

    Loved this book. Whether you have dealt with chronic illness or know someone struggling with chronic illness, I'd say it's a must-read. Filled with the real deal. <3 ...

    Scher's book is inspiring, engrossing, and a wonderful read. As someone who has dealt with invisible illness for a long time, I related to so much of her story. The travel aspect also provides the armchair reader with an in-depth look at living in Delhi, which I found fascinating as we...

    I sat down to read Amy's book and couldn't put it down until I got to the last page. I am so grateful she took me on her trip to India and introduced me to her whole loving family, by way of her words. I laughed, I cried, I loved. Amy, your bravery and insights are mind boggling. The r...

    I have followed Amy's work for the past 7 years and I found this to be her best writing yet. She is far enough on the other side of her health challenges to write about her journey with humor, perspective and earned wisdom. An inspiring memoir, I quickly devoured this page turner in tw...

    This Is How I Save My Life is Amy's story with her diagnosis, mis-diagnosis, what she does about it and how her decision affects her life on different levels. She struggles for awhile before she makes the life-altering decision to journey to India where they are doing embryo stem cell ...

    I read this amazing tome while recovering from intestinal and umbilical hernia surgery. It helped in getting me well again. Very informative about Lyme disease, Stem Cell Research, the horrors and insights into illness, and the ability and willingness to fight in self healing. I didn'...

    I received an arc of this book from a Goodreads giveaway. I really enjoyed reading about Amy's journey. Really interesting! ...

    This is the second memoir I've read depicting the courage and perseverance of a woman fighting late stage Lyme disease. (The other book was by Yolanda Hadid.) Scher's journey takes her to India for a stem cell treatment. On the whole, this trip is helpful, and Scher reacts positively. ...

    This was a great book! I would recommend this to anyone who is suffering from chronic illness. Inspirational and dead on with the feels that can be brought on by chronic illness. ...

    5 stars. Thank you to GoodReads, the author Amy B. Scher, and @Gallery Books / Simon & Schuster for this Advanced Readers Copy to review. Over the years, several people have told me I should write about my journey with Lyme disease and chronic illness. Now I don't need to, ...

    I won this book from Goodreads about a young woman with an ?incurable? disease who, after exhausting treatments in this country, travels to India to explore other options. At first, this writer had my sympathy for her condition. I found the writer?s description of her treatments ...

    There were certainly some great moments in this book, and I can?t say I?m sorry I read it. However, by the end, there are a few things that make someone like me (who has lived with chronic illness for 17 years) completely enraged. There?s a sense of mind over matter that she seem...

    Very fast read, I finished in one evening. Amy does a great job of capturing the roller coaster of chronic autoimmune disease and how illness derails your life, along with the constant obsession with finding the elusive cure for the multiple things wrong with you that doctors cannot fu...

    Rather than telling a story of "finding everything," this novel provides a series of irrelevant medical words followed by their definitions. But don't be fooled: the writing is extremely unsophisticated, and the novel is poorly organized. For the first two hundred pages, it seemed like...

    I received a copy of this in exchange for a review. This was such a surprise to me. I didn't expect to like it as much as I did. I wasn't in love with her writing style, but it ended up not mattering much. I was drawn into her compelling story, and could not wait to find out how it...

    You'd be surprised by the amount of humor a woman as sick as Amy was able to find as she struggled with Lyme disease. This really is an inspiring book--about doing what you need to do for yourself, about pushing through pain and the little and big discomforts of life and travel and fam...
