Funny and scary
I was recently diagnosed with IDC & am doing as much research as I can possibly cram into my brain... Norton's book was informative in its way and funny as hell. In the spirit of Augusten Burroughs & David Sedaris she made me laugh out loud while driving. I'm so glad she wrote this... I thought I was the only one who handled things this strangely! (thinking about how short the dr. was to the point where she couldn't take in what he said, etc.). Nice to know other people are as twisted AND live to tell the tale!
Running with Scissors (for the cancer patient!)
