“I always wished I could find a booklet like this! The information on your site is great and since it’s so hard to explain MS or other invisible disabilities to others, I am grateful to you for writing your booklet and making it available.” – Brenda, Indiana
“Terrific insights and communicated clearly…my husband said it finally opened his eyes to what I had been trying to say all these years. Thanks.” – Sue, New Jersey
“I just finished reading the [But You LOOK Good] booklet and although I found myself filling up with tears on almost each and every page, I enjoyed it immensely.” – Bonnie, Rhode Island
“My husband read [the booklet] straight away and I actually got a cup of tea in bed this morning, what a treat!” – Kris, Australia
“This is the best book I have ever read in regard to invisible disabilities…I have had such a hard time explaining what I go through and how I feel. I cried and cried reading the book because it described me to a tee. I think you are a wonderful person for putting all of this in writing and making it understandable. Thank you so much.” - Debbie, Virginia
“I encouraged my mom to order your book, But You LOOK Good. She said it’s helped her to better understand that [just] because I look ok on the outside, doesn’t mean I feel ok on the inside. I am grateful for your site and your book, I don’t think my mom would have ever understood without it. She’s passed it along throughout the family and everyone who has read it so far has had a better understanding of what just daily life does to me. Thank you so much for writing this book, and sharing it with us, it truly has been a godsend to me.” - Kelli, Illinois
“You have said what I have wanted to say to so many people for so many years. I have suffered with Crohn’s disease for 35 years. I have never been able to find anyone who could really understand what it’s like to suffer with an illness that can affect every aspect of my life all the while, looking (for the most part) normal on the outside. Not that I have been searching for pity, just some understanding. My thanks goes out to you!” – Matt, Washington
“My Dad used to hassle me every single time that I saw him. It had gotten to the point that I rarely ever went to my Parents home anymore, and when I did it would be for no more than 10 minutes at a time and the times were rare. I gave my Mom and Dad each a copy of your booklet. I know that my Dad read the whole thing. He has been transformed, literally. He never says a word to me about my back injury anymore. He used to always say thing like ‘You better hurry up and get back to work, or your going to lose your job.’ Plus he was always really hostile to me over nothing. What an utter Blessing your booklet has been to me in my life. You put on paper ‘exactly’ the words that people who have never had a ‘Chronic Illness’ NEED to read. Thank you so very much for being responsible for getting some of the people in my life to clearly understand what all I have to go through just to manage to do the simplest of my daily needs, not to mention all of the things that I do that lay me up for days at a time.” – Jerry, California
