Nightmare on Elm Street


“Every night I go to bed knowing that Freddy Krueger will be waiting to beat the shit out of me with a baseball bat, and that I’ll wake up with whatever horrific injuries he’s inflicted.”

Have you read Jenny Lawson’s book Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir)? It had me laughing out loud all 384 pages, which meant that I had a lot of grown men looking at me bewildered when I read in public. Lawson has a chapter on RA and described the aches and pains perfectly! She also asks why treatment doesn’t include a personal assistant.

“The doctor was right about there being a lot of treatment options, but I was disappointed to find that none of them included medically prescribed Segways, or personal monkey butlers to help you open pickle jars.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself.
