Embracing the Monster: Overcoming the Challenges of Hidden Disabilities

Embracing the Monster: Overcoming the Challenges of Hidden Disabilities
By: Veronica Crawford & Larry B. Silver, M.D.

What is it like to live with disabilities no one can see? Readers will find out in this honest and gripping narrative of one woman's life with hidden disabilities — including learning disabilities, ADHD, and bipolar disorder. Yet this is more than just her story of battling adversity and coming out a winner. In each chapter, renowned psychiatrist Larry Silver, M.D., shares his insight into how Veronica's experiences — both positive and negative — influenced her academically and emotionally and how early diagnosis and intervention might have benefited her. These two compelling accounts give readers an appreciation for the difficulties and triumphs living with hidden disabilites can bring and an awareness of what can be done to help.
