What’s It Like To Be Permanently Sick?
If you or someone you love suffers from chronic pain, fibromyalgia, or any other chronic illness, you already know what it’s like to be permanently sick. Having a chronic illness means that your healthcare providers who don’t believe you; the drug companies who provide your medicine, and the insurance companies that refuse to pay those claims are in control of your life. Not only are you sick, but I’ll bet you’re sick and tired.
I know what it’s like. I’m a prisoner in my own body, too. Doctors who don’t listen, friends and family who don’t believe you’re sick. Having an invisible illness means you’re on your own. It’s scary, it’s frustrating, and it hurts. My own adventures with pain and all the other terrible parts of fibromyalgia have been going on for 16 years. The damn thing is old enough to drive now.
This is the definitive guide on how to be permanently sick in America. Irreverent, angry, and pretty goddam hilarious, No End In Sight is the book I wish I’d had at the beginning of my own pain journey. This book won’t cure you. Neither will your doctor, drug companies, or anyone else. But it’ll help you cope with the often confusing, always infuriating, and the neverending road of being permanently sick.
