Writing Your Story to Heal

John and I have just returned home from the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) Convention in Los Angeles, California where I promoted my book, Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s.  Author Website: http://www.theresecrutchermarin.com

The question I get asked most often when I interact with folks is, “Why did you decide to write a book?”  My reply is, “The motive was purely selfish because I was looking a way to heal from the loss of my three sisters-in-law to the cruelest disease on the planet; Huntington’s disease”.  Article:  The Healing Power of Telling Your Story 

In 2008, Cindy, my third sister-in-law passed away and in 2010, I began writing my story.  A counselor I’d seen for years suggested I write a book as a way to heal.  Seven years later, in 2017, I held a book in my hands and could honestly say, “the process of writing my story, validated what I had gone through, and allowed me to move the grief I harbored to the pages of the book; so, yes, I have healed”.
