Author Tory Sileo, a woman afflicted with multiple sclerosis, shares with readers her personal journey and experiences in dealing with the disease and its treatment. Why is the handicapped stall in public restrooms the farthest from the entry door? In Please Come and Walk With Me, the author brings to light the many difficulties that disabled individuals have to endure everyday.
It is a known fact that individuals suffering from handicaps or disabilities face challenges in accomplishing their day-to-day tasks. The government has passed several regulations or policies that address these issues; however, there are still situations that cause difficulties and frustration for individuals with disabilities. Some of these involve the many menial tasks most people take no notice of, such as brushing one’s teeth, or combing one’s hair. These things, once accomplished by someone with a disability, become monumental. Sileo’s book presents this, along with many other situations that have tried her patience and perseverance, in the most honest manner possible.
A journal in nature, the book gives readers an inside look into the complexities and obstacles that disabled individuals face. It is a first-hand account of the life of a person struggling with a disease that left not only herself handicapped, but her loved ones as well. This book is a reflection of the author’s thoughts on her condition; all shared with the hope of opening readers’ eyes to the struggles handicapped individuals experience.
