The Lady's Handbook For Her Mysterious Illness : A Memoir

Author(s): Sarah Ramey
The funny, defiant memoir of Sarah Ramey's years-long battle with a mysterious illness that doctors thought was all in her head--but wasn't. A revelation and an inspiration for millions of women whose legitimate health complaints are ignored. Ramey recounts the decade-long saga of how a seemingly minor illness in her senior year of college turned into a prolonged and elusive condition that destroyed her health but that doctors couldn't diagnose or treat. Worse, as they failed to cure her, they hinted that her problems were all in her head. This is a memoir with a mission: to help those who suffer from unnamed or misunderstood conditions: autoimmune illnesses like fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic Lyme disease, and chronic pain. Her pursuit of a diagnosis and cure for her own mysterious illness becomes a medical mystery that reveals a newly emerging understanding of modern illnesses as ecological in nature.-- From statement provided by publisher.
