Writing a book...who's done it?!

Recently during a "healing" session with my homeopath, we talked about the possibility of me writing about my experiences. How writing about my experiences would help bring additional physical healing to my body; the body remembers illness and trauma on a cellular level. Writing would educate those who don't know about the illness and even more importantly, help those who are going through similar situations and let them know they aren't alone in their struggles.

I am hoping to write about my experience with Molar Pregnancy and how it turned from a "pregnancy" to cancer, and how we dealt with the trauma, loss, surgeries and treatments. I want to share the experience with others in hopes of reaching that ONE person that is going through the same thing; feeling devastated, alone and physically, emotionally and mentally drained. One of the hardest things that we had to deal with was not knowing anything about Molar Pregnancy and Gestational Trophoblastic Disease (GTD), and having very, very limited resources for getting information or support. I want to help support those who are suffering the way I suffered in 2009.

My Amazing Family in the summer of 2009 ~ three months into chemotherapy.

Read my blog entries made during diagnosis, treatment and recovery:

Molar Pregnancy blog post 1
GTD blog post 2
Recovery blog post 3

So in hopes of writing a self-help book, I am looking for anyone out there who has written and published one before. This will be my first one so I am hoping for pointers from those of you who have pearls of wisdom for me! I am very excited to get started!! =)

Thoughts? Wisdom? Advice? Direction?
