“I am a person with a chronic illness that has left me disabled. Ania’s book not only perfectly described the facets of living with disability, chronic pain, and chronic illness, she also touched on how it can be for friends and loved ones of such a person. She exquisitely describes in terms anyone can understand – whether they are a patient, friend or loved one of a patient, or just a regular person wanting to learn about the struggles of those of us who are ill. This book was devoured in days and something I feel everyone should read, especially if you know a person with chronic pain, a chronic illness, and/or a disability.” – Kacee L Cole
“I just finished this book, and oh, how I wish I’d been able to have read it when I was 13 and my chronic pain journey started. If you have chronic pain, if you’re disabled – this book is a wonderful reminder of how you are not alone. You aren’t broken. You’ve done nothing wrong. There’s a lot about society that’s messed up, and this will help you navigate it.” – Sarahbellum
“This book is a must read for those of us with chronic illnesses/pain, those of us who are disabled because of these things, because we are not alone. This is a must read for those of you who love someone who is disabled or has a chronic illness/pain, this is a deeply personal insight into how hard things can be and how we might feel. While our illnesses and disabilities may vary so many emotions and thoughts are the same. Feeling invisible, worthless, and dealing with being sick in a world that would prefer we were not.
I urge anyone to read this for the above reasons, or if you have never dealt with chronic illness in any capacity, then I urge you to read this as well so you can understand.
This book made me tear up, get uncomfortable, gasp, it made me laugh, it made me nod, and even say out loud “YES!” when the author writes something that resonated strongly with me. It is a quick read and the author engages you enough that you won’t want to put it down. Will be buying copies for people I know who need to read it also.” H. Hill
