Description
In this challenging and informative book, Veronica Marris, who was diagnosed as diabetic while in her twenties, has interviewed many women with a range of illnesses and medical conditions -- including arthritis, asthma, cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, heart disease, HIV/AIDS, lupus, ME, multiple sclerosis, sickle cell anemia, and thyroid disease.

Marris uncovers many concerns and problems common to these different women, who struggle with disabling illnesses as well as with a society and a medical profession often unwilling or unable to recognize their needs of their worth. Many speak of the naivete or ignorance of friends and family, of the pressure of being seen to be coping, of being blamed for their illness, and of being thought pushy or bitter when they fight for what they deserve.

This account of the humor, intelligence, and courage women bring to bear on the obstacles in their way offers others the comfort and strength of knowing they are not alone.
