Our warm congratulations to MDI member, Siobhán Dunleavy, on the publication of her book, ‘Accepting and Connecting with Muscular Dystrophy’. We are really looking forward to reading it!
Siobhán, aged 29 years old, was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at 21. In her book, she tells her personal story of how being diagnosed with a life-changing condition had a massive impact on her overall wellbeing, but just when she thought her life was falling apart, she realised it was actually falling into place. Although her diagnosis was life changing, she does not embrace it as life defining.
Siobhán speaks about exploring meditation, acceptance and mindfulness and how this allowed her to reconnect with herself and all of the abundances the world had to offer her. In this light-hearted, humorous and intimate tale, she highlights the challenges people with rare conditions and disabilities face every day.
The book is available to be bought from numerous stores around the country as well as from the Book Hub Publishing website at:
and from Amazon on paperback and ebook at:
