From the star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills comes an emotional and eye-opening behind-the-scenes look at her descent into uncovering the mystery of chronic Lyme disease.
In early 2011, Yolanda Hadid was struck by mysterious symptoms including brain fog, severe exhaustion, migraines, and more. Over the months and years that followed, she went from being an outspoken, multitasking, hands-on mother of three, reality TV star, and social butterfly to a woman who spent most of her time in bed. Yolanda was turned inside out by some of the country's top hospitals and doctors, but due to the lack of definitive diagnostic testing, she landed in a dark maze of conflicting medical opinions, where many were quick to treat her symptoms but could never provide clear answers to their possible causes.
In this moving behind-the-scenes memoir, Yolanda opens up in a way she has never been able to in the media before. Suffering from late-stage Lyme, a disease that is an undeniable epidemic and more debilitating than anyone realizes, Yolanda had to fight with everything she had to hold on to her life. While her struggle was lived publicly, it impacted her privately in every aspect of her existence, affecting her family, friends, and professional prospects. Her perfect marriage became strained and led to divorce. It was the strong bond with her children, Gigi, Bella, and Anwar, that provided her greatest motivation to fight through the darkest days of her life. Hers is an emotional narrative and all-important listen for anyone unseated by an unexpected catastrophe.
With candor, authenticity and an unwavering inner strength, Yolanda reveals intimate details of her journey crisscrossing the world to find answers for herself and two of her children who suffer from Lyme and shares her tireless research into Eastern and Western medicine. Believe Me is an inspiring lesson in the importance of having courage and hope, even in those moments when you think you can't go on.

Courage and Love prevails
It is not often that any of us have an opportunity to witness a battle from the front lines. Yolanda's journey through this horrific epidemic is almost impossible for most of us to fully understand unless living it. This book chronicles her process, her fortitude, her faith and strength to meet the battle " head on" add to reach the point where she has made this disease cry "uncle"! If you know anyone suffering with any chronic illness help them! Send them this book on audible since many have a difficult time reading. Never give up on them for the end of the day knowing you have your Warriors with you help you find your recovery.

Her Truth Moved Me
Her raw and honest truth was moving. She sheds light on both a horrible disease and human nature.
For me this validates her truth and passion that you can hear running so deep in her.
