‘I inadvertently introduced Victoria and David Beckham, stupidly turned down a date with a top Premiership footballer, talked to singing sensation Barry White about fish fingers and had a cup of tea with Darth Vader. I made an exhaust for Damon Hill's F1 car, fell in love in Las Vegas and travelled around America with

The main reason for picking up this book is that I suffer from the same chronic medical condition as Juliette Wills, Ankylosing Spondylitis. This book is like going on an adventure through 20 years of Juliette's life, it starts off quite fun and quirky with tales of her early career in journalism in London and meeting some famous celebrities, her romantic life, sometimes disastrous but always interesting and her wonderful parents and friends. What happens next is a very sad but true story of ...more

I enjoyed reading this book about a kind of quirky, sometimes over the top personality. Juliette comes across as someone who you would like to be best friends with, very strong and likeable! She laids it all out, no holds barred with her description of suffering from not one but two horrible medical conditions. First, her career as a sports writer and journalist is rudely interrupted by a severe bout of colitis for which she seems to receive little help from those in the medical profession. I ...more

Picked up this book as I too have a chronic invisible illness and I wanted to see how a write would describe her pain, fatigue and all the other symptoms, thinking that I could maybe use some of her words to help my family and friends better understand my condition. I think it worked to a certain extent - my mum is also going to read this book to try and see exactly what I feel and experience on a daily basis.
Anyway, enough about me...I found this well written, engaging and honest, a really grea

Wills shares her story of learning to live with chronic debilitating excruciatingly painful illness, the sharp contrast between her life before and after the illnesses came into their fullness, and the reality that there is no getting better and learning to cope with that. Angry - and with plenty of reason - this is a fine read for others who have developed one or more chronic debilitating illnesses (there is so often more than one!), for those who love people living with those illnesses, and ...more

Amazingly inspirational. An emotional book that will have you laughing one moment and tears in your eyes the next. Would recommend this to anyone who has had to live with personally or see a loved one deal with a chronic illness on daily basis. A fabulous insightful read.

I really enjoyed this book. I originally borrowed it from Amazon Prime to hear about her way of dealing with AS, as I have recently been diagnosed myself. It didn't take long though to get caught up in her romances an wacky ways.

Wonderful read

Juliette is an actual superhero, I'm sure of it!!!! Her humour throughout everything is a credit to the strong and brave woman she is. I have IBS which is tough but is nothing compared to what she goes though.
