In her late twenties, at an age where everyone else seems to be focused on their career, starting a family or travelling worldwide, Mika instead suffers a kidney infection which leads to non-psychosis (severe anxiety and panic disorder, along with agoraphobia) and ongoing health problems that no one seems to be able to fix. She is suspected of Lupus, although her symptoms seem more like chronic UTIs. But with the test results always being negative for anything wrong with her, she is helpless in getting real treatment. This memoir describes the journey Mika takes as she seeks answers for her chronic health issues and learns to let go of many things while gaining insight into life and herself.

I’ve always dreamed of publishing a book since I was a child, but I didn’t know that my first book would be my memoir about my health struggles. When I became ill and was sometimes bedridden, I passed the time reading other memoirs which inspired me. My life is nothing extraordinary compared to some of the books I have read, but felt I needed to share my findings on my journey to better health. I hope that it will help others who are suffering through similar health issues. Despite the unfortunate situation, it led me to become a yoga instructor and live a more healthier and happier life.
