Description

The antithesis of every medical guide and health how-to, Our Syndromes, Ourselves exposes the humorous side of female complaints, real and admittedly fabricated. From PMS to Empty Nest Syndrome, Menopause to Mid-Life Crisis, mainstream maladies are analyzed, explained, and interpreted with a new satirical twist. Recently identified conditions such as Dr. Lauranoia, Road Rag, and VADD (Vehicular Attention Deficit Disorder) are examined in nonthreatening laywoman's terms and tongue-in-cheek style. Chapters include a practical description of each syndrome with symptom checklists, quizzes, and treatments that are bogus, at best! First-person case studies are written by "real" funny women who explain how it's possible to live with, yes, even celebrate our dysfunction in today's society!show more
