Summary
Sue Currie was admitted to hospital, in agony, hundreds of times, but when her disease was assessed as not serious enough to be causing that level of pain, she was labelled as mentally ill and manipulative, a drug addict shopping for painkillers. Eventually, after years of fighting and irreversible damage to her body and mind, she found the medical maverick who would save her life. Sue Currie suffers from a strain of porphyria so rare that she was only the 18th known case in the world. Difficult Patient is a timely account of falling through the cracks of the medical system, detailing cover-ups, powers plays, and ultimately, redemption
