Summary

After completing her graduate studies in England, Yeukai returns home to rural Zimbabwe to a jubilant celebration rich in the cultural traditions of the Shona-speaking people. There, she receives life lessons from her beloved grandmother--a wise elder holding sacred knowledge passed down through generations. 


Though impressed by her grandmother's lessons, Yeukai sets them aside to pursue a corporate career in the biotech industry in California. For years, Yeukai embraces a consumer lifestyle, pretending to live the American dream. However, the busy activities of her life--focused on chasing material delusions--hide the emotional turmoil within, until things come to a head. 

 
In search for meaning in her life, Yeukai returns home to Zimbabwe only to be heartbroken by the devastation inflicted by AIDS, rampant corruption, and a near-collapsed economy. In despair, Yeukai turns within in search for answers in her life. And the answers start to be revealed--in the deep meaning of her grandmother's teachings and the rediscovering of her own true nature. And she begins to redefine her relationship with the world. Poems interspersed throughout the novel poignantly capture Yeukai's triumphant journey to the realization that a life of purpose is truly possible if we allow ourselves to be guided by mystic powers.

    Women obliged, by men and women to take a bestial role as eg bitches, milch-cows, ponies, seals?, mermaids?, piggies, used, abused, humiliated, loving every minute, every time! Much to her new trainer’s delight, Margaret never spoke another word, simply barking, yelping, panting and whimpering to express her feelings and desires. The naked cow nodded as hard as she could.  You let him fuck you like a good little cow.” “I’m a seal!  “Orr Orr Orr!”  Next would come the Mermaid’s tail, but first to reward the girl for her patience the man licked and fingered her desperate pussy, lovingly caressing her enclosed face and whispering sweet nothings that she could no longer hear. “There’s a good little pony,” groaned the Headmistress contentedly as she slipped her fingers into Angela’s pussy and fondled her firm ripe breasts. Fantasy bestial and age play—but remember in the real world keep it safe, sane and with the freely given consent of every party!

    “The hardcover publication of “Sick Girl” garnered tremendous attention, generated impressive sales, and ignited controversy. Both inspiring and provocative, reactions to the book ranged from inflammatory posts on a US News & World Report blog, to hundreds of letters from readers, to a full-page review in “People”. Amy’s force, candor, and her refusal to be the thankful patient from whom we expect undiluted gratitude for the medical treatments that have extended her life, have put her at the center of a debate on patient rights and the omnipotent power of doctors.  At twenty-four, Amy was a typical type-A law student: smart, driven, and highly competitive. With a full course load and a budding romance, it seemed nothing could slow her down. Until her heart began to fail. Amy chronicles her harrowing medical journey from the first misdiagnosis to her astonishing recovery, which is made all the more dramatic by the romantic bedside courtship with her future husband, and her uncompromising desire to become a mother.  In her remarkable book she presents a patient’s perspective with shocking honesty that allows the reader to live her nightmare from the inside an unforgettable experience that is both disturbing and utterly compelling.

    Having a warrior’s mindset and going through modern life is like bulging with muscles and having to lift 5 kg. Developing that warrior’s mindset is like a workout for your mind, your philosophy and your soul. It will make you unstoppable.
    
    Now imagine if you could take that same mindset and apply it to modern life. Instead of getting tired or bogged down, instead of being distracted and tempted, you would instead drive forward with an unstoppable, bulletproof mentality. Your enemies would quake knowing that there was nothing they could do to stop you and your career obstacles, relationship goals and financial plans would all crumble beneath your will.
    
    If you apply an iron will and warrior mentality to a modern lifestyle, you get extreme efficiency, determination and pride. Self-discipline, determination and self-sufficiency are traits that make us strong and that help us get what we want.
