I happy to be bringing you my review of, The Chronic Pain Manual – The really, real manual to pain by Nikki Albert. This is my third in a series of six reviews I am doing to promote authors who live with chronic illnesses. You can checkout my first review here and my second one here.
I have start off this review with a confession. I had a draft almost ready to go but decided to trash it and start over. Why would I throw away a perfectly good post; because of all the craziness going on in the world at this moment.
Those of us living with chronic illnesses are on edge, worried about how this is going to affect those of us who are most vulnerable. We NEED to take time to distract ourselves from the constant bombardment of bad news. There is no better way to combat anxiety then with humor, and Nikki serves it up in this book that can be delivered straight to your door! What makes her book so refreshing is that it is written by someone who lives this life and therefore can relate on every level. This manual not only makes fun of all the ridiculousness that surrounds chronic pain, bringing you laugh out loud moments, but also the sense of feeling understood, and this is a beautiful combination.
What made reading her book so ironic is that I finished it while in a 140 degree sauna, roasting my backside off, dripping in sweat, and feeling nauseous, because hey, I have been told it was good for me………..(if you read the book, you will get the irony).
So, take a moment to check out her book on Amazon and if you can’t afford to purchase it, please ask your library to do so. This book will not disappoint those who live the life of chronic illness, and for those who don’t, it will give you a glimpse into what it is like to walk this path.
Now please head over for a visit with Nikki in her neck-of-the-woods at Brainless Blogger. Thank you.
