The Monday New York Times reviewed an intriguing book written by a woman who has had a headache since 2006.

Twenty-two years after a seemingly miraculous full recovery from breaking her neck in a car accident,
Lynne Greenberg was struck with a severe headache that has not gone away since.

In her memoir, The Body Broken, Greenberg chronicles her experience with unrelenting pain, the seemingly never-ending process of trying to find someone who can help her, trying treatment after treatment and having no success, dependence on the medication that is supposed to help and the effects on her family and marriage.

Her story sounds like something we could all easily relate to and may find inspiration in.

You can buy the book at Amazon.com by following this link:
