Publisher's Summary

A book about the hilarious side of being ridiculously diseased - laughing through life and encouraging others to do the same.

This is not a book about a disease itself, nor does it have any woe is me or forced epiphanies on the meaning of life and health. It's a book about sobbing student nurses wielding sharp needles, falling hospital elevators, having to be surgically removed from your own sweater for an X-ray, and support group brawls. It's about getting my whole family pulled off into a cement bunker at British customs for being more radioactive than a truck full of Russian nails. It's about sneaking nachos into the hospital at seven in the morning and making sweet, sweet love to the back of a parked taxi while having a stroke. This is a book about laughing and joyfully embracing the bizarre and the truly funny side of being ridiculously, incurably diseased.

So sit back, take a hit off your oxygen tank, and get ready to laugh at the funny side of falling apart. At the very least, you'll never look at a bed pan or an IV pole the same way again.

    "Brilliant"

    Funny and informative piece about the author's experience with sarcoidosis. Highly recommended to anyone with any interest in medical writing or rare diseases. It is very funny in places and I've had a few odd looks from fellow passengers whilst trying to suppress my laughter!
