Read from August 07 to 08, 2011 — I own a copy

A lot of people with chronic pain symptoms adored this book, but the author annoyed me a little.

She often came across as quite smug that she belonged to the Pain Club and you don't, like it somehow makes her a better person. She doesn't even really accept her pain and takes it out on everybody around her, including the readers of her blog.

Self-righteous attitude aside, I did enjoy the book itself. Ms Fulda can write very, very well as it's not often that a pain memoir can make me laugh out loud.

I would recommend reading it, but I don't think she empahises with other sufferers quite as much as she claims.
