Breathing For a Living: A Memoir - Taschenbuch

2004, ISBN: 0786888695

[SR: 490348], Paperback, [EAN: 9780786888696], Hachette Books, Hachette Books, Book, [PU: Hachette Books], 2004-06-09, Hachette Books, Now in paperback comes the moving account by an extraordinary young woman who mounted a daily struggle with cystic fibrosis in an effort to lead an ordinary life.Twenty-one-year-old Laura Rothenberg had always tried to live a normal life--even with lungs that betrayed her and a constant awareness that she might not live to see her next birthday. Like most people born with cystic fibrosis, the chronic disease that affects primarily the lungs, Laura struggled to come to grips with a life that had already been compromised in many ways. Sometimes healthy and able to attend school, other times hospitalized for weeks, Laura found solace in keeping a diary. In her writing, she could be open, honest, and irreverent, like the young person she was. Yet behind this voice is a penetrating maturity about her mortality, revealing a will and temperament that is fierce and insightful., It would be easy to assume that the story of Laura Rothenberg's battle with cystic fibrosis is one of a brave young woman staying constantly positive in the face of tremendous adversity. But situations such as hers are rarely that simple. Thankfully, the portrait that emerges in her memoir, Breathing for a Living, is that of a complex and very real human being who experiences joy, anger, despair, and hopefulness while struggling to live the kind of normal life most of her fellow college students take for granted. And while her candor is admirable, what makes Rothenberg a remarkable author is her dedication to just getting words written down on the page at times when many would simply retreat from the world. Through an agonized process of waiting for a lung transplant, she writes down exactly what she's feeling. She writes extensively as her body fights the disease and struggles to accept the new lungs. And as she is shuttled back and forth between her New York home, her academic career at Brown, and numerous emergency hospital stays, she keeps on writing. Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at three days old, Rothenberg spent much of her life in and out of hospital rooms so her medical knowledge is extensive and well documented. One gets the impression that staying on top of this information helped her feel at least somewhat in control of her own situation and it lends a steady gravity to her emotionally charged memoir. The book is a pastiche of e-mails to friends, journal entries, and the occasional snapshot. It looks very much like a college kid's scrapbook, which, in many ways, it is. Rothenberg’s energetic prose is highly informal and probably more guileless than one would see from a more seasoned writer. But that intimacy and simplicity adds to the charm and, as Rothenberg's health deteriorates, the heartbreak as well. By the end of Breathing for a Living, the reader loses a friend but gains a greater appreciation of what it means to live.-John Moe<, 3048891, Memoirs, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2444, Special Needs, 2437, Specific Groups, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 2445, Women, 2437, Specific Groups, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 465678, Genetic, 4656, Diseases & Physical Ailments, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 282816, Lung & Respiratory Diseases, 4656, Diseases & Physical Ailments, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 465684, Respiratory, 4656, Diseases & Physical Ailments, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 173514, Medical Books, 227560, Administration & Medicine Economics, 227571, Allied Health Professions, 227191, Basic Sciences, 227604, Dentistry, 3559244011, History, 266181, Medical Informatics, 265542, Medicine, 227640, Nursing, 265544, Pharmacology, 6511980011, Psychology, 227677, Research, 227719, Veterinary Medicine, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
