    1. ***** 5 Cranky Stars *****Chiari Malformation: it's a term I'd never heard of and now is one I won't forget. This book is one of those that changed my outlook on life.I picked this book up on a whim. The synopsis appealed to me and it's been incredibly enlightening about chronic illness, those who suffer and those who bear witness. Told from dual points of view: Brenna, the sufferer, and her husband, the witness. The narration from both points of view really made this book hit home. It lays o [...]

    2. This book was very difficult to read, not because I didn’t like it, but because the subject matter is not an easy one.Taken from her own personal experience, Renee has given us the story of a life threatening illness and one woman’s struggle to keep going despite the hardships this brings to her life.The book is about Brenna, a very happy and confident woman who loves life and isn’t afraid of anything. The story follows Brenna from the moment she meets her husband, Nick, until the moment s [...]

    3. This book hit so very close to home for me, as another Chiari sufferer. While our stories are so different, I could relate so very much! Very moving!!!

    4. WOW this is a challenging , super emotional read , for many reasons. Having said that it is also a wonderful read if you are able to handle reading about sickness. Normally I would avoid a book knowing the majority of it would be about a struggle with a condition as frustrating and horrific as Chiari can be BUT knowing this author and knowing her struggle with this condition I had to open up and allow myself to learn as much as I could about this condition. Anytime an author can tell a story , m [...]

This Author put her soul into this book because it is her soul, it is her life.I applaud Renee for allowing us to walk in her shoes, to feel her pain, her joy, her love.

    6. I have read a lot of books this year - well over 100. I have read a lot of great books this year - I immediately thought of at least 20 as I wrote that. This book goes in a category of its own. I want to buy this book for everyone close to me and tell them it is required reading. I think I have actually convinced my husband to use a Kindle for the first time because he realizes it is that important to me that he reads it. Then I want to give copies to all of my friends struggling with chronic il [...]

    7. I’ve had to sit on my thoughts for He Loves Me Healthy, He Loves Me Not for a few days now. There’s something so indescribable that I felt as I turned that last page.

    10. I have stated for the record, on more than one occasion, the fact that 5 Stars seems like a low rating for an EPIC book.

    12. What is Chiari? If you would have asked me this question before I read this book, I would have probably said it sounds like a beautiful girl’s name. I had never heard of Chiari until I began reading “He Loves me Healthy, He loves me Not” It took me six days to read this book, six days of hundreds of emotions I felt with every page turned. The condition depicted in this book is very real, and it something that is rare and unknown to many.In this story, we meet Brenna and Nick. Their lives a [...]

    16. First let me say MUST READ. I purchased this book in support of a "Friend". A friend that I have met on the internet, a friend that has kept me coming back for her books. A friend that I found out is living with the battle of Chiari. The proceeds went to Chiari Research. I say friend, because, even though we don't speak every day she feels like one.

I have not heard of Chiari before I read this book. This was a learning experience as well as a heartbreakingly great story.

    18. It is hard to put into words how I felt reading this tender and brave book! Facing any challenging medical condition in life can be draining and depressing. Renee Dyer showed us that as long as you have loving support, dealing in this case with a very serious brain condition that reqired mulitple surgeries, you can get through anything. As a writer, Renee Dyer is really something. I felt truly connected to the main character going through Chiari, Brenna. Each and every small nuance about how her [...]

    21. For those who think Chiari is fakeThis is your eye opener!!!5 stars are not enough for this book. I want to thank this author for her writing about this. If you know me, I read a book in less than 2 days. This one I couldn't. With reading this story, I relived the past 6 years of my life. The heartbreak, fear and happiness that people dealing with Chiari go through. To top it all off, most doctors have NO CLUE what this is and most feel you are faking it all. Like I said my story started 6 years [...]

    22. I was given a copy by the auhtor in exchange for an honest review.I'm not sure if I can give this book the justice it deserves. It was such an emotional and powerful story I had to stop a few times just to take it all in and be able to prepare myself to finishing reading. The author had such a way of writing that you could feel the pain and despair these characters were feeling. Nick was such an amazing guy, he stood by Brenna through out the whole book, even when she was not very nice, he stood [...]

    23. I read this book last week and fell in love with the writing, the characters, the story. After I finished it, I found out that someone I had known slightly through Facebook had died in her sleep, more than likely from complications of Chiari. It brought the message of how devastating this condition can possibly be and the effects it has on both parts of the couple. This is no condition to take lightly.I thought the depiction of a couple in crisis was well--written. The resolution was left open-e [...]

    24. This book is a great heart felt touching story. Breena and Nick are amazing couple who have a lot of things tested when Breena is becomes sick. Breena is diagnosed with Chiara. I learned a lot about Chiara reading this story and it did make me want to learn more about it. Breena and Nick goes through a lot of ups and downs. Many of us take the vows "in sickness and in health" during our weddings. What happens when that vow is put to the test? Breena and Nick find out. It's a emotional read. Bree [...]

    25. One of the best books I've read in a long time. As a fellow Chiari warrior I had high hopes and Mrs Dyer exceeded them. She had me crying before Brenna was even out of the hospital. I relived every emotion I felt from when I was diagnosed up to leaving my daughter with family the night before my surgery. It was like she reached into my head and expressed what I couldn't at the time. I highly recommend this book to anyone who knows someone with Chiari, it may help you understand the daily struggl [...]

I am lucky to say that I know Renee through Facebook. she has talked a couple of times about Chiari openly, but I never imagined how difficult it really was. this may be a book that is categorised as fiction, but the struggle and pain behind it is real.
