Top Customer Reviews
Personally I think the book has another function. It should be required reading for families and friends of those affected. It is not self-pitying, though self-pity is more than justified. It sets out clearly what it is like to live with this illness from day to day and should foster real understanding. (My impression was it must be like living under triple gravity while being tormented by devils with pitchforks.) In particular it should be required reading for ATOS. I was disgusted by their grossly reductionist, inflexible and inhumane approach to Gina's work capability assessment.
It is also a book about hard-earned wisdom. When life becomes limited in scope or duration by illness, it brings the realisation that pleasure is relative. How many of us take time to be grateful for generally functioning minds and bodies?
I borrowed the kindle version from the library and was so inspired I purchased the paperback!
