it was ok

I read this book at the beginning of my knowing anything about vulvodynia, and I'm grateful that it exists, because having a word you didn't have before for something you want to say is really really valuable. I'm kind of surprised at the medical treatment that she did and didn't get; a few years later in the same city I got *much* more effective and helpful care that was nowhere NEAR as invasive, and I worry that this book makes it seem like all the treatment options suck, so why bother. I was sad and kind of uncomfortable reading about her jerky-sounding boyfriend, too.
