What does it mean to be permanently sick?If you or someone you love suffers from chronic pain, fibromyalgia or any other chronic illness, you already know what it's like to be permanently sick. Having a chronic illness means that your healthcare providers, the drug companies who provide your medicine and the insurance companies that refuse to pay those claims are in control of your life. Not only are you sick, but I'll bet you're sick and tired.I know what it's like. I'm a prisoner in my own body, too. Doctors who don't listen, friends and family who don't believe you're sick. Having an invisible illness means you're on your own. It's scary, it's frustrating, and it hurts.This is the definitive how-to guide on how to be permanently sick in America. Irreverent, angry and damn hilarious, No End In Sight is the book I wish I'd had at the beginning of my own pain journey. I won't cure you. Neither will your doctor, drug companies or anyone else. But I'll help you cope with the often confusing, always infuriating and neverending road of being permanently sick. Being a Chronic PainerFinding an Advocate and a Venting CoachTips on sleeping, eating and (eek ) even sexDrugs and their insane side effectsAddiction, obesity and suicideThe business of healthcareDealing with well-meaning foolsTalking to your doctor (and getting answers)
