When Carol Gray moved to an upper-middle class neighborhood, she found that it wasn’t just her living space that was bigger; her physical and mental problems were also growing.

Most people who suffer from autoimmune diseases are usually sick an average of ten years with various ailments before getting the correct diagnosis. Carol was no exception, and she struggled to maintain the fašade of normality among the neighborhood’s stay-at-home moms, green lawns, and white-collar dads.

In this guidebook about coping with autoimmune and thyroid disease, she recalls her struggles and shares stress-coping tips, nutritional advice, alternative therapies, and insights on dealing with friends and family who want to see evidence of an invisible disease. She also explores how to deal with mood swings and other symptoms not yet fully explored by the scientific community.

Millions of people suffer from autoimmune and thyroid diseases, but they remain misunderstood. Find the answers you’re looking for, and discover how to keep your sense of humor in Wow, Your Mom Really Is Crazy.

if I could give it 0 stars I would, I suspect the other reviews are written by the author. Its a very poor resource for people with graves disease, and frankly the writing is so tedious I couldn't finish it

This IS the book for anyone suffering from autoimmune disorders. I laughed, cried, and really found myself connecting with the author... She does a great job of using blending humor with real life situations, and has plenty of what I found to be very useful tips. This is NOT a book just filled with data and boring medical jargon about thryroid and autoimmune information. This is a self- help book, that journals the authors plight into a 10 year search for answers. The information is well documented, but it was the humor and personal touch I enjoyed most. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that has, or knows someone suffering from these types of illnesses. I was informed, motivated, insired, and toatlly ENTERTAINED while reading this quickly paced book!
