I strongly recommend it for those who are suffering with CRPS/RSD or for those who have someone in their life suffering w ...more

Nicole does a very good job of taking the reader into the ugly world of chronic pain. This book will take you on a journey through Nicole's eyes on the pain and frustration of being mis diagnosed from Doctor to Doctor off the very nasty disease, RSD. Very inspirational, indeed!!!
