My chronic pain book
Nice to see a ‘real’ book about pain. From the perspective of a person who suffers from chronic pain, but doesn’t take themselves too seriously or comes from ‘poor me’ angle! A refreshing change!
Laugh until you cry for your chronic pain
I have never laughed until I cried about my chronic illness. The dark humor and sarcasm shows how ridiculous it is to be in so much pain ALL the time. It’s also validating and poking fun at the non-pain-people’s responses. This book is not for a specific condition but for all of us who suffer every day with chronic illness. Nikki Albert, you hit the nail on the head! Wait, did I just reference a migraine?
A good giggle
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 24, 2019Format: Kindle EditionVerified PurchaseThis book was recommended by someone with fibromyalgia. It was an easy read, and if you don’t mind a little profanity, i5 made me laugh out loud. To laugh at what one deals with in a life of chronic pain makes it easier, if only for a while. The book was fun.
Definitely recommended if you suffer
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 4, 2019Format: Kindle EditionVerified PurchaseThoroughly enjoyed reading this it summed up how it is to live with chronic pain – and with humour! Also made me laugh especially at Fibro fog-Head. It’s not the pain that’s funny the authors attitude is so upfront and direct and explains fibromyalgia so well. I may read it again…
The Chronic Pain Manual: the really, real manual on pain
Do you have pain? Have you had pain so long that you don’t even remember what not pain feels like? I mean is that even a thing? Not feeling pain? Pain level 0? We at the pain manual are not even sure anymore. And this is the Manual for you, my friend. We will go over such topics as how to know you are actually in pain to what not to do on Good Pain days.
The manual was lost to us for years but was recently recovered by me. Unfortunately, only pages of it were and can be released. This is a hypothetical quote from the potentially really real author of the really, real manual: “People like me with illness just need to know what to do. We flounder with random advice. I was told yesterday to drain the black bile from my body! Black bile! I need my black bile to live! Someone needs to write something to guide us in the right direction. So we had step by step instructions on how to do this coping business.” To which the reported response was, “Suck it up, buttercup.”
Well, we did suck it up, Buttercup. And the manual shows us ways to think about pain in Book 1.
Also in print- Which is the format it was designed for.
It will be available on Kobo, Apple, and Barnes&Noble as well. As well as some other miscellaneous sites. You can check the link HERE to see options.
