My Body of Knowledge
What is it like to live with a chronic illness or disability? How does it feel from the inside? My Body of Knowledgeis a collection of personal essays, poetry, and fiction that accesses the wealth of insight and knowledge that people with disabilities have – simply from living in their bodies.
My Body of Knowledgeincludes 34 pieces of writing from both new and established authors, including Molly Ivins, Floyd Skloot, and Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D. Honest, raw, humorous, and poignant, the writing captures experiences of those with cancer, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn’s disease, paralysis, repetitive strain injury, Lyme disease, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, AIDS, and other physical conditions.
