Availability: Ready to download

This poetry collection includes poems Amanda Leigh wrote after her hospital stay in December 2012. They are not pretty, fluffy pieces. They are sometimes graphic, sometimes silly, but they are real. These are some of the things Amanda was feeling then. She felt that it was important to get these real and raw thoughts out there. She wanted to keep the "loopy" quality of the This poetry collection includes poems Amanda Leigh wrote after her hospital stay in December 2012. They are not pretty, fluffy pieces. They are sometimes graphic, sometimes silly, but they are real. These are some of the things Amanda was feeling then. She felt that it was important to get these real and raw thoughts out there. She wanted to keep the "loopy" quality of the poems; as they came from her head straight after she got home. She felt that they showed the state of her mind at the time better that way. While it is a different experience for everyone, it rarely discussed what staying in a hospital can actually be like. This is her experience.

    *I won this signed book in a goodreads giveaway* First off, I want to apologize profusely for not thanking you for my copy!! I was genuinely so excited to read this, because I was dealing with a lot of health problems and thought I could relate to the poems. I've had my fair share of hospital visits and was bedridden for 7 years, just relearned how to walk this past year and push through the pain. Right after I got this book, my disease (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) worsened, so my depression *I won this signed book in a goodreads giveaway* First off, I want to apologize profusely for not thanking you for my copy!! I was genuinely so excited to read this, because I was dealing with a lot of health problems and thought I could relate to the poems. I've had my fair share of hospital visits and was bedridden for 7 years, just relearned how to walk this past year and push through the pain. Right after I got this book, my disease (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) worsened, so my depression worsened and I didn't think I could handle reading this. Last July I was starting to get my mental issues under control, when a family member commit suicide and my depression spiraled downhill once again and I only wanted to read "happy books". Anyways, that's enough personal stuff about me in one review... :) I hate giving bad reviews, especially when so many others enjoyed the book. It makes me feel like I "missed something", that me not liking the book is for my own reasons more so than the fault of the book/author. I felt like the poems were incomplete. As if a nurse (or some stranger) asked you to explain your situation and you told only the basics. I was expecting more of a conversation between a best friend or loved one, or even a diary, describing the good and the bad without sugarcoating anything. You said some of the poems were graphic, but I just didn't see that. They didn't seem personal or graphic enough. I loved your positive attitude and appreciation towards the little things (ie: showers, which I completely agree with you! And sleep, yes sleep). It made me want to learn more about you and your health issues, but I still felt like I barely knew anything about you and hadn't gotten a new insight about hospitals that I hadn't already known. I understand these poems were just about your hospital stay, not an entire life memoir, but I had to google what Nephropathic Cystinosis is. It was probably silly of me, but I googled AFTER I finished the book, so I was quite confused and curious after reading about what was actually wrong and going on. I do wish you the best of luck, I hope you stay as happy and healthy as you can. *sends positive vibes* "If you quit, if you give up, it will never happen. I've been through enough pain; I'm gonna get a reward for it." - Eric Thomas

    I'm the author so I may be a bit biased. ;) I did keep the "loopy" quality of the poems though and that was hard for me to do. I wanted them to stay very much the way that they were when I first wrote them on first coming home from the hospital that time.

    Totally encapsulated the feels surrounding having to have other human beings take care of your own body!
