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.
