A handicap is defined as an added advantage or a disadvantage.
(PRWEB) January 07, 2016
Described as, ‘gripping’ and ‘insightful’, author Cynthia De Boer opens reader’s hearts, minds, and eyes with her new book, ‘Me, Myself & Eye’. This intimate look into a seemingly surreal series of events and honest realities gives insight to the author herself, while also conveying a message of hope and perseverance – a must read for anyone suffering of body part loss.
Born in Colorado in 1960, Cynthia De Boer quickly faced numerous health challenges, but never allowed herself to falter. Every challenge faced, served as motivation to push forward, and afforded her the opportunity to gain compassion and understanding of herself and others. ‘Me, Myself & Eye’ is explained as the blending and acceptance of: Me, the physical body, Myself, the emotional mind, and Eye, the prosthesis. From her real life experiences, Cynthia is able to explain to her audience how one comes to a place of comfort and confidence after the loss of a body part, as well as the steps that enabled her to smile once again when gazing at her own reflection.
De Boer’s book takes readers on a journey of shock and loss, to the discovery and acceptance of one’s self. In this honest, thought provoking, and at times heart wrenching memoir, Cynthia uses all that she has learned to help others going through a difficult change. From discovering prosthetic camouflaging techniques, to how the movements of a pet can help ease mobility, De Boer aims to remind readers that a handicap is defined as an added advantage or a disadvantage, and that it’s up to them to decide how their loss defines them!
