    Completely Awesome!

    Melanie is writing about my life! I cried, I laughed but mostly nodded head through the read - it was as if she was writing about me. I am so sorry that she has chronic pain but extremely grateful that she was able to showcase her experiences through her writing. I would recommend this book to anyone experiencing chronic pain. But I would especially recommend this to anyone living with someone with chronic pain - this book completely describes the experience. My husband says that it was an eye-opener.

    Worth the read for a few nuggets

    As a chronic pain sufferer, I guess I hoped subconsciously that she would provide that elusive magic bullet. Instead, she revealed the truth. There isn't one. However, my mom lent me the ebook. She hoped I would get some nuggets of good information and that goal was achieved. One nugget is worth the read, so I recommend this book based on that alone as well as Melanie's insightful narrative mixed in with the fact that she did all this work while in chronic pain. That's admirable.
