You get up, fix breakfast for your three-year-old son, drive yourself to work -- a day like any other. You're running late for a meeting, and as you hurry down the hall, the light is getting brighter and brighter, and suddenly your vision explodes and . . . you're gone.
When you wake up, you're in a hospital bed. You can't talk, move your left side, or get out of bed. You can't comb your own hair, much less walk to the bathroom. You've had a massive brain hemorrhage. Your doctors tell you you're lucky to be alive. Even though they don't know the cause of your hemorrhage, they tell you whatever it is, it's incurable and you'll most likely die. But then they tell you the good news: If you do live and manage to get into a wheelchair, at least you can always find parking.
Julia Fox Garrison refused to listen to the professionals she called Dr. Jerk, Dr. Panic, and Nurse Doom. She clung to the advice of the kind and gifted Dr. Neuro, who told her "I have to treat your mind as well as your body." After many months in the hospital and then rehab, after coping with the shock of learning what had caused her stroke, and with the help of family and friends and her own indomitable spirit, Julia not only got into a wheelchair, she got back out and learned to walk again.
Funny, touching, and profoundly moving, Don't Leave Me This Way is the true story of a woman's fight for her life -- and for her dignity -- as she struggles to overcome the debilitating effects of her stroke. She battles an entrenched medical community with wit and grit, challenging her doctors to always remember that she's a human being and to think beyond the pages of their textbooksand show her the encouragement and optimism that she knows is going to make the difference between life and death.
