“Jo gives valuable insight in what to expect when you have this condition and takes you by the hand through all the ups and downs and emotions of a potentially life threatening condition and operation” - Amazon book review
“There's not much on the market which covers the personal experience of a benign brain tumour, which is surprising considering over 4,000 people will have one every year in the UK.
Jo's experience covers the period prior to diagnosis and follows the treatment through in an honest way. Hugely personal, hugely relevant and hugely positive. Offers hope and understanding to anyone facing this operation and their families.
Medical professionals, whether involved in brain tumours or not, should also read this book as listening respectfully to the patient must never be forgotten!” - Amazon book review
Both before and shortly after surgery I decided I needed to write down my experiences, in the hope that explaining how I felt emotionally during various stages as well as the odd and worrying physical sensations, will support and help others who have been diagnosed with a brain tumour, or anyone needing brain surgery.
As well as inform their friends and family how they may feel and what may help them too.
I also hope that the total change in my belief system and realisations after will help anyone who is having to go through a health crisis or supporting a patient of any kind - that you can either look for the negative, or find the positive and the lessons in any situation.
Reading IT'S ALL IN MY HEAD will help others who are into Natural Health who have found out they need surgery work with the two different modalities and be happy that what they choose is right for them. Also finding a way to blend alternative treatments with conventional to maximise healing.
