Ian never gives up hope while searching for that which will make his life complete. Most of us are on that same path but with many fewer obstacles.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book which is just one of his many achievements and I highly recommend it for all.
You've heard the story of "I cried because I had no shoes, until I met a man with no feet."
Well I have complained about arthritis until I read Ian's book about a man that can't move.
Ian is a young man who is upbeat despite his physical disablities.
He uses his mind and writes books and wonderful poetry and creates pictures.
He doesn't feel sorry for himself.
I also applaud his parents who have stood by him and are always there for him.
I very much enjoyed this book which was hard to put down once I began reading it. It sheds a whole new light on a devastating disease. The openess and honesty of the writer, who unabashedly shares his experiences,emotions and intimacies of a life totally dependant on others for everything, is truly inspiring. It also illustrates how a devoted and loving family have dedicated their lives to his care. It was extremely touching.
Ian talks about his life and journey in specific details, not leaving nothing out, so we as the reader can really know what it's like to live with DMD, along with all the unexpected bumps and humps he and his family had to face so far.
Though the road doesn't seem to get any easier to travel...yet he continues to keep hope alive, enduring the trials. One thing he isn't doing here is throwing himself a pity party, it's the complete opposite; he's full of humor and smiles.
I am truly inspired, and I do believe that anyone can benefit and be inspired from reading this book, you just won't be able to stop it from happening.
