Would you Recommend this book?
"I have been throwing up all night. Sleeping and then jerking awake, dry-heaving into the plastic trash can."
"I'm not sure what happens at this point. I guess I kind of lose hold of reality for a little bit."
"My eyes are sunken in, my skin yellow and scaly-my sweat smelling like chemicals . My body is just bones at this point."
