Against Medical Advice: One Family's Struggle with an Agonizing Medical Mystery
It's a heart-warming story of a young boy afflicted with a severe case of Tourette's syndrome. The doctors don't know how to treat him, so they keep feeding him medical cocktails in an effort to control his behavior. The drugs don't work; they just sedate him (leading to ADD) and depress him adding depression to his list of maladies. Some of the drugs simply intensify his problems.
James Patterson displays his usual talent for good writing as he describes essential events in Cory's life. This is a story about the importance of family, of parents who dedicate themselves to helping their son, even when that means "tough love", and of the recognition that modern medicine has limits that the human spirit does not.
This story will inspire those who deal with Tourettes on a day-to-day basis and also inspire those who know little about the disease to take interest in those who do have it.
This story is true; it is personal and will pull at your heart. Everyone should read it.
Add this one to the library people, it’s a keeper.
