It is the condition that impacts the brain, spinal cord, or peripheral nerves to and from the bladder. And, may result in Neurogenic Bladder Symptoms.
JoAnne, the author is diagnosed with Neurogenic Bladder and Bowel Disorder. She wrote this book to give hope and inspiration to all people that have the same condition with her. Her condition is relatively common to women, especially those who undergo vaginal deliveries. Sexual urge is affected that sometimes cause frustration. This condition often results in depression, isolation and full of hassle.
I like on how JoAnne carefully noted the solution she discovered. Is the effect of this condition can be halted? Yes, and that is the good news. How? Beyond Embarrassment, reach out for help, this is the first thing to do. Seek medical advice. Then, you need to reach out your partner and together create the pleasure. Secondly, positive outlook helps ease your problems. Do not isolate yourself because isolation is dangerous. Thirdly, don't give up. Share your problems in whom you have confidence. Lastly, which made me like the most, she wrote it. To give information, precautions, and to strengthen a person Beyond Embarrassment.
I love the quotes before the topic is being discuss because it gives excitement when I read it. This book made me laughed , shocked and conscious about my health, too. Aging is part of life as we get older. And, our body is at risk like Neurogenic Bladder and Bowel disorder. But, during youthful days, we can still prevent it. It is by not rejecting the negative signs of our body. When your body aches and tired, get some rest. Do not overuse the strength of your body.
This is a nonfiction book and well written. The format and topic is also good. I highly recommend this book for all women because women are usually the target of this kind of illnesses. And, you will really enjoy the "knowledge nuggets" for it is full of practical advices and tips to maintain good health. Therefore, I strongly give this book 4 out of 4 stars. The author did not hesitate to write her condition in order to give inspiration for all women that have the same condition with her. Even if, I disagree with confidentiality because the author included some health issues from other people. It is taken from her blog but if sharing might lighten their loads, it is good at the other side. And, it promotes awareness for all women to take care of their body, especially on younger days.
