Superheroes aren't sick.

They certainly don't have chronic pain, sexual dysfunction, or diarrhea. After all, spandex suits and sudden bowel movements don't mix. Do they?

With raw sincerity and tongue-in-cheek humour, Alexander holds nothing back while discussing how to navigate doctors, dating, sex, friendships, faith, and embarrassing symptoms. Part memoir, part research, part pop culture analysis, Super Sick offers a friendly hand to anyone with chronic illness, a reminder that they aren't alone and have much to offer the world.

With a new foreword, updated information, and bonus materials, this second edition is a must-read for anyone who has-or knows someone who has-a chronic illness.
