this book is awesome. i’m just over half way through and i honestly can’t put it down. written by an expert patient, not a doctor, it’s so easy to understand and read. the book is equal parts educational (in a way anyone could understand) and supportive (how to change your life to accommodate the disease). having read the first half, i can easily say it sums up everything that’d pieced together in bits on the internet as well as taught me enough that i could expect medically what is going on with my body and my joints. it feels great to have this resource. i’d recommend it to anyone.
