Women in Pain, Sex & the City, and a Spy in My Brain

On Friday night, I was lazying about on the proverbial couch, reflecting on the Women in Pain conference, thinking how lovely it was to suddenly have a group of four feisty women with similar experiences around chronic pain. Four feisty women, I thought. How very Sex & the City. Wait a minute…

I called up one of my new chronic pain gal pals and told her we should totally start a Sex & the City spinoff about four women with this condition. I was thinking in terms of screenwriting; but Jennifer pointed out that reality shows are all the rage today, so why not just have a freakin’ camera follow us around?

Next thing you know, I get a copy of Laurie Edward’s new book, Life Disrupted: Getting Real About Chronic Illness in Your Twenties and Thirties. (I was peeing in my pants with excitement about this book. I can’t wait to read it and post a review.)

That in turn prompted me to hop onto Laurie’s blog a few minutes ago, only to discover that the Boston Globe has dubbed her the Carrie Bradshaw of chronic illness. Yo! Matthew J. Lee, Boston Globe staff writer: Back. Off. Sex & the City of Pain is mine!
