Publisher's synopsis[edit | edit source]
(This synopsis was provided by the publisher for promotional purposes. For book reviews, please see Links section below.)
What this book IS NOT: This is not a book about how to 'cure' M.E. This is not a volume of factual medical information on the condition This is not a magical success story from chronic illness to perfect health What this book IS: This is the honest account of a young woman who has suffered with M.E. / C.F.S. for almost half her life. This is what it's really like to live with a long term illness that casts a shadow over every minute of your day.
Novelist K.C. Finn turns her hand to non-fiction in this account of her life as an M.E. sufferer, covering thirty topics from diagnosis and medication to sleep, relationships, pain and depression. It offers a unique and extremely personal insight into the struggles and experiences she has encountered in the last twelve years. This book is an opportunity for non-sufferers to experience exactly how it feels to live with this crippling condition and to show fellow M.E. patients that they are not alone.
