This book is about a womans life who has experienced most everything but death and child birth. She survived an abusive marriage, several abusive relationships, mental abuse as a child in her home, and being mentally and physically worn down by show business, which constantly challenged her self-esteem. It will tell you how she overcame disaster (several severe car accidents, being mugged on the street, and a 1976 sailboat trip through the middle of the Bermuda Triangle), what she learned from her experiences, and how she has put into practice the knowledge gained from those lessons; the biggest of which is having a sense of humor through it all. She has studied human behavior and abusive situations, and hopes that this book will allow her to help young girls deal with the misogyny of women that is ever-present in the world today. There is also the intrinsic value of entertainment contained in these pages of her triumphs and tribulations. Have a look into the world of a woman whose uncanny fortune is displayed in every corner of her life.

Those around me focused on the legal definition of rape. I did not know about rape, but I wondered why I jumped out of my skin.

I have never had surgery, never had kidney, heart, eye or circulation problems. If I cut my foot it heals like everyone else’s. I have perfect 20/20 vision. I was an eight year old boy when I became diabetic. Forty years ago the life expectancy wasn’t very good for someone with diabetes. There were other young children from my area that became diabetic about the same time that I did. They have all died. In this book I will tell you how I lived my life differently than those other young children. The reasons why I have been this healthy will surprise you. I won’t tell you to go on some crazy diet or anything like that. I will just give you some common sense things that I have done my whole life to stay this healthy with diabetes. I have taken over 36,000 injections of insulin in forty years. I wrote this book to inspire other diabetics or parents of a diabetic child. Diabetes does not have to change your life; it has never stopped me from doing anything.
