Smiling On The Inside
A personal story by Lizz Russell
Smiling On The Inside is an amazing story that is warm, reflective and inspiring to its readers. Lizz Russell shares deeply personal experiences about the subtle tingling sensations that touched her face and hands and then gradually spread to her arms and legs, and ultimately to extensive numbness throughout her entire body. Winner of the prestigious Henri Award for “Outstanding literary work” by Christian Literary Awards. Once the frightening symptoms began, Lizz wisely sought medical attention and her physician diagnosed her rapidly deteriorating condition as the rarely seen disorder, Guillain Barre Syndrome. He ordered immediate hospitalization where she remained in ICU for the few months. GBS, as it is called, was on the attack within her body’s nervous system, and on the way to the hospital Lizz was already losing control in her extremities. Her own body seemed defenseless against itself and it was declining from the top of her head all the way down to her feet. GBS was paralyzing her entire body. Lizz tells her amazing story in a frank and honest way that resonates in the heart of anyone who has faced sudden illness, affliction or devastating disease. Recalling her experiences from the onset of illness to recovery, Lizz captures the attention of survivors across the spectrum of illnesses from Guillain Barre Syndrome and the more advanced Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) to Cancer, Diabetes and numerous afflictions that challenge a survivor’s determination to live beyond expected limitations that are often predicted by medical responders. Lizz was an aspiring fashion designer when GBS attacked her nervous system. Today she extensively travels across the nation as a successful entrepreneur and tells her story of survival in ways that give inspiration to every listener.
