Deeply personal essays recount matters of preventative health care, the hard decisions we each have to make, Do It Yourself health care, and how to deal with extracting health care from government/corporate health care systems. Alive With Vigor! has a special focus on queer, youth, and transgendered people, recognizing that everyone has different health care needs. Finally a how to book where you can put the advice directly to use in your life!
