For the last few weeks, I've been wondering how I'm going to do that. I think your book will help me. Your parents did an excellent job because you seem very strong and sure of yourself. Hopefully, my child will be too! -Jessica Lizzie, I am from South America where it is difficult to achieve goals. My problems are nothing compared to yours. But if you can do it, I can too. I will pray with all my heart you finally receive a proper diagnosis. You've inspired me! -Miguel Hi Lizzie, Wow, I admire your courage. You have a great attitude! It makes me feel ashamed for ever feeling sorry for myself. You really inspire me. Keep it up, Lizzie! -Emily Dear Lizzie, Just want to let you know how much I respect you. I am 21 years old and have never watched anyone my own age with as much courage and heart as yourself. Wish you the very best in the future. -Nicholas Lizzie, I am a 30 year old woman from the U.K.. You sure are a fighter and you help me fight a little more too. I'm dealing with depression and sometimes life seems too hard for me. When I read your story, I knew that I - too - have to fight. I wish the best for you and hope all your dreams come true. -Helen Dear Lizzie, You look so thankful, so happy. How do you do it? I'm so glad there are still people like you in the world. -Monika"
