Summary
One otherwise uneventful morning, Abby Norman woke up and went to take a shower. Out of nowhere, she was struck down by an excruciating, nauseating pain and collapsed on the bathroom floor. Unable, perhaps at times even unwilling, to diagnose her symptoms and take her pain seriously, doctors suggested Norman's condition was 'all in her head'. Still, the physical pain persisted. When she was eventually diagnosed with endometriosis, she thought she'd found the answer. But then an even more unusual medical condition befell her that had nothing to do with her reproductive system. When the doctors were once again mystified, Norman realised the fight had only just begun. Combining her findings from medical research past and present, interviews with experts and patients, and a hearty dose of pop culture appreciation, Norman takes readers on a journey by turns infuriating, humorous and inspiring
