This is a book about many things. In essence this is a book someone who has chronic pain or any chronic condition will find a great deal in. Any woman also. Any lesbian. Virtually any human being if they are willing. It’s a universal book about a life. Sarah Bigham asks in her introduction; What is truth?

This is one of the most powerful, honest, heartbreaking, passion-filled, life-giving books I have ever read in my life, and I don't say that lightly. When I bought this book, it was because a friend of mine, who was my colleague, wrote it and I wanted to support her writings. I have known Sarah for ten years through our work at the college.

I am grateful for the stories, the humor in a frustrating situation, and empathy for other human beings. Also, it is incredible ...more

This is a beautifully written book of essays and poems from a writer who has lived what she writes about. It provides an inside look to someone who has chronic illness. Anyone with it or knows someone or wants to be more compassionate should read it.
