it was amazing
bookshelves: fibromyalgia, fiction, memoir-biography
Read from July 05 to 08, 2012

The author calls this an autobiographical novel - what I take this to mean is that the experiences were real, the places and names were somewhat changed. What I do know is that he's managed to beautifully craft what it feels like to live with CFS/ME, and knowing what CFS feels like, it is nothing short of awe-inspiring that he was able to pull together such a gorgeous book.

I found myself emotional many times while I read this, as having lived through some similar events (and I laughed at some of them - the doctor lists and attempted cure lists in particular, been there and done that) and just really felt like someone was finally able to put into words what its like to try to keep it all together when your body just is falling apart.
