I am not in chronic pain, but my sister is. This book helped me understand what's going on with her and her frustration with the medical field. This book validates people who have this problem, and enlightens those of us who care for them and are trying to understand them. It was the only book I could find that didn't say there was a "cure" if only the person in pain would eat this, or do this, or meditate, or ask God, or........ FOR SOME PEOPLE THERE IS NO CURE! These people need to be validated, treated, understood, listened to, and loved!!! There are a lot of books on pain, but this is the only one that really tells it like it is! People in pain are not junkies looking for a "fix". Someone in pain relies on medication to live a life worth living. Taking medication to relieve pain is not a crime, but inadequate pain management should be! <BR/>I started reading the book, stopped several pages into it, and went on-line to order 3 more copies. I really can't say enough about this book. If you are in pain or know someone who is I highly recommend this book!!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I'm 39, and I don't 'look' like I'm in pain, but I have had SEVERE chronic pain for over a decade. You MUST treat yourself to this book. I own at least 25 books and this is the best! You are sure to see yourself in one of the featured chapters. This book is written with great compassion, and is PRACTICAL not 'fluff.' I have written over and over in the margins. When I get 'down' I re-read various chapters and it has helped me to 'advocate' for myself. You did NOT ask for this pain, and we all 'deserve' the best relief available. Good Luck!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
