This book was so hard to put down! It had me in tears and also laughing hysterically...Robyn has an awesome sense of humour. As a woman in her 40's this was sometimes hard to read as I am very aware of the potential for health issues, but has certainly made me so thankful that I am healthy. It was an absolute pleasure to get a glimpse into her life and how she deals/dealt with her diseases. Thanks Robyn!!!
