The overall message I received was one of acceptance. Learning to accept life's circumstances while changing what you can and letting go of what is out of your control. Readers are encouraged to acknowledge physical limitations while thinking outside of the box to redefine success in their lives.
Even though I do not have PNES, I do battle ongoing anxiety and depression. I was able to apply much of Berger's advice to my own life while learning more about this rare disorder. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking motivation in their life, especially those who are experiencing manageable depression or anxiety, debilitating depression such as suicidal thoughts or limiting physical conditions. Berger has a unique gift of instilling a sense of "I can do this" attitude that will provide you with the push you need to not only fight through life's challenges, but have some fun while you do it.
One of mt favorite quotes from the book: "PNES stripped away the facade of power I had built for myself. It revealed a reality about life I so often like to hide from - ultimately, I am not in control. I couldn't control the PNES diagnosis, and I couldn't control my body during the episodes. The act of having a seizure, particularly while you are conscious and aware of what your body is doing, is truky the definition of powerless." -Kate Berger
