Title: Most of Me: Surviving My Medical Meltdown
Author: Robyn Michele Levy
Most of Me chronicles Robyn’s devastating Parkinson’s diagnosis and her subsequent discovery of two lumps in her breast. This book offers a unique glimpse into a creative mind, an ailing body, and the restorative power of humor and fantasy.
With irreverent and at times mordant humor, Most of Me chronicles Robyn Michele Levy’s early, mysterious symptoms (a dragging left foot, a crash into downward “dead dog” position on the yoga mat), the devastating Parkinson’s diagnosis, her subsequent discovery of two lumps in her breast (Little Lump and Big Blob), her mastectomy and her life since then dealing with her diverse disease portfolio. She is accompanied on her journey by a fantastic cast of characters, including her Cry Lady (who always makes appearances at inopportune times) and perky Dolores the Prosthesis, as well as a convoy of health professionals, family members, friends, and neighbors. Both heartbreaking and hilarious, Most of Me offers a unique glimpse into a creative mind, an ailing body, and the restorative power of humor and fantasy.
