My favorite portion of the book was the stories from people who write about how ET has affected them. I wished that I could have asked them all into my home--we could probably go on for hours about how ET has changed our lives. I even got a tear in my eye once or twice because I felt so much empathy. Some of the stories were so similar to my own that I was amazed--the woman who worried about what her wedding day would be like--I had a couple of good stiff martinis before I walked down the aisle--the girl who stayed home from school rather than be forced to write on the blackboard or the girl who shook badly while giving a book report. I was unable to finish a speech once--a classmate had to escort me out of the room. I also stayed home from school to avoid writing or speaking. Another story I totally identified with was the girl who was shaky during her graduation exercises. I'll never forget the day I got the shakes walking down the aisle for my eighth-grade graduation and also my mother's reaction--"I was so embarrassed! Why were you shaking? Everyone else looked so proud!"
This book has left me wanting more! Reading these stories is like having a support group come to my home. Incidentally, I'll never forget the neurologist who laughed at me when I said that I thought it would be good to start a support group. One expects more understanding from professional people--neurologists certainly--also teachers (I felt deeply for the young girl who was treated so badly by her elementary school teacher when she had trouble producing legible handwriting).
One of the worst parts of any disorder is the feeling that one is alone--that no one else has this disorder. I didn't know anyone else with it when I was growing up. So a book like this is invaluable. It lets those challenged by ET know that they are not alone. I thank the author for giving us this gift.
