Summary:
For two decades, Duffy has suffered from sarcoidosis, a disorder that causes the growth of inflammatory cells on different organs of the body. In her case, her sarcoidosis is located in her brain, causing unimaginable pain. At times inspirational, funny, and informative, Duffy illuminates methods people can use to cope with chronic pain. She reinforces the sentiment that despite the pain, there is a way to a good life.
