Now, Candace lives in the UK where the hospital wards are different than here in America. Where we may have our own private or semi-private room that we share with one person. In UK, there can be up to 4-5 in a room. She has an entire chapter dedicated to the joys of her wonderful roommates. "Special Needs Pirate Prostitute Brigade" to future Jerry Springer guests. Even inmates and racists! Each beautifully described in detail to make you feel like you are right there with her.
I wanted to share an excerpt that I felt so connected with Candace...
"ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT ASPECTS TO DEAL WITH OF MY CONDITION IS DEBILITATING FATIGUE THAT IS NOT REMEDIED BY SLEEP - YOUR BODY IS SO BUSY FIGHTING ITSELF THAT IT DEPLETES YOUR ENERGY BEFORE YOUR EYES ARE EVEN OPENED IN THE MORNING."I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved how she found humor to keep herself sane while going through all the motions of having a chronic disease. Thank you for writing it Candace!!

**I was contacted by the author and asked if I wanted a free copy of her book and write a review. I was in NO WAY compensated for reading, writing a review or having a link on my blog. She didn't even know I was going to add a link on my blog until I asked for permission to use the image of the cover of the book. We all need to stick together to get through chronic illness!!**
