“You want to be sick?” she shrieked. “You want to be sick?”
My Susan transformed into an angel of vengeance. I will confess my secret to you: I was excited in the most carnal sense. The pain aroused me, and she was overcome with anger, possessed by the demon of wrath.
Her face was tight and contorted. Her cheeks were flushed, and her body was rigid as she swung the ball peen hammer into my face, one, two, three times. She said it over and over again: “You want to be sick?” Her voice cracked at the top of each threat.
I heard the crunch of my skull as the hammer crushed my left cheekbone—ghastly, sweet sound. I felt like I was laughing, but I heard myself as an animal yelping. Then I felt another explosion of pain. Excruciating. Unbelievable. Exhilarating.
I had always hurt myself, but as earnestly as I try to give it my all, there’s a natural holding back. There is also a pesky leverage problem. You can never get enough momentum going with your own arm. I hit myself with a hammer as part of my daily routine for years, but rarely did I ever get past some mediocre bruising before my nerves overrode my desire for injury, blocking me from ever using my full force. I had to get help with that, especially when I was young and weak, which I will tell you about later.

I could swear I felt the pain described here. The chills ugghh
Did you read my review of Sick? Totally disturbed me. LOL.
I went around and read your review. I don’t know if I could handle this or not. The cover enough is sending warning signals on my head. I feel very curious but hesitant as well.
Its definitely not for everyone, BUT it’s not like you’re committing to a 300+ page read either, so why not give it a try? Especially since its free.
