    PDF/EPUB Porochista Khakpour ß ß Sick ePUB ↠ sick download, Sick eBookThis might be my biggest reading disappointment of the year so far I have been looking forward to this book for ages and when it finally arrived I jumped straight into reading it I find the story Porochista Khakpour tells of illness that went years without a diagnosis about racism and sexism in medicine about addiction and losing oneself so very very important and relevant but the execution just did not work for me I found the structure of the book unhelpful the jumping back and forth sometimes within the same paragraph difficult to follow and frustrating even though I can see how that could have worked wonderfullySh

    PDF/EPUB Porochista Khakpour ß ß Sick ePUB ↠ sick download, Sick eBookGiven that an official diagnosis doesn't come until 40 pages from the end Sick is less a memoir about having Lyme disease than a memoir about having a mysterious illness that baffles doctors results in a lot of inappropriate and expensive treatments and is routinely viewed as purely psychological an infuriatingly common scenario for women For that reason alone this book is valuable Indeed because of my interest in the topic I broke my new resolution to avoid current memoirs in order to read Sick But ultimately I wish I hadn't I guess I thought because Khakpour is an acclaimed novelist this memoir would be better than the others I've encountered lately but that wasn't the case Although the novelty of the story initially made this absorbing the jumpi

    PDF/EPUB Porochista Khakpour ß ß Sick ePUB ↠ sick download, Sick eBook ”the deal with so many chronic illnesses is that most people don’t want to believe you They will tell you that you look great that it might be in your head that it is likely stress that everything will be okay None of these are the right thing to say to someone whose entire existence is a fairly consistent torture of the body and mind They say it because they are well intentioned usually because they wish you the best but they also say it because you make them uncomfortable Your existence is evidence of death and no one needs to keep seeing that ”For those who might not be familiar with the condition Lyme disease is caused by bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi that are transmitted to humans by black legged aka “deer” tick bites If the tick is removed within 24 hours of attaching to the skin there is a good chance that a person or animal won’t be infected with B burgdorferi though he could sti

    PDF/EPUB Porochista Khakpour ß ß Sick ePUB ↠ sick download, Sick eBookAnyone interested in this book absolutely has to read this review in the New York Review of books by an actual doctor this memoir might be interesting it's an exercise in delusion and it might well do damage than good in the world As this review puts it to insist beyond all plausibility that one’s suffering is related to a tick bite is not feminist; it’s absurd And to prey on suffering people who crave that certainty offering them expensive intensive and dangerous treatmen
