really liked it

** spoiler alert ** I have RA also and was fairly newly diagnosed when I read this book, not knowing the extent of the pain it could cause. Almost 5 years later, I totally get it. Even on good days her job was stressful, and then add chronic, almost debilitating pain on top of it. I downloaded this book because I have RA and LOVE The Academy Awards. I first thought, why would anyone want to leave The Oscars? Well, I get it now. I've left early from events, I've missed things entirely due to a terrible disease, but her determination to get experimental treatment and keep going even when it felt impossible made it seem like someday it would be bearable.
