I think the author said that she has failed,because her body “wasn’t hers” anymore. But, considering the fact that she tried her best and did actually everything she could – I wouldn’t say she failed at all. She found herself in horrible situation she couldn’t understand – I mean, she used to have normal life which she probably enjoyed, was a mother and working woman – and suddenly she can’t couldn’t even feel her body. I’m sure it was horrible for her. But she was strong enough to stay in hospital for a year(!) and try to find a way to be herself again. Christina didn’t fail, her body did. For me, she is kind of winner here – and she succeeded.
