My Battle With the Invisible Disability of Lyme DiseaseBook - 2017
In this moving, behind-the-scenes memoir, Yolanda opens up in a way she has never been able to in the media. Struck by an illness more epidemic than people know and more debilitating than anyone realises, Yolanda had to fight with everything she had to hold onto her life. While her struggle was lived publicly, it impacted her privately in every aspect of her existence: her family, friends, and professional prospects. Her perfect marriage became strained and led to divorce; but the strong bond with her children Gigi, Bella and Anwar was her motivation to fight through the darkest days of her life. Hers is an emotional narrative, and an all-important read for anyone unseated by an unexpected catastrophe.In those moments, we all have to find the courage to go on. With candour, authenticity and an unwavering inner strength, Yolanda shares intimate details of her journey to uncover the source of her many symptoms, as well has how her children, two of whom also suffer from Lyme, have been her shining light in her darkest moments.
