Wellness is oppressive, self-love is a trap, hustling is a health risk, and it's all the patriarchy's fault. 'Poor Little Sick Girls' is for femmes who are online and want more from activism and life. Ione Gamble never imagined that entering adulthood would mean hospital trips, medication choices, and throwing up in public. Diagnosed with an incurable illness two weeks after her nineteenth birthday, as the world became obsessed with Girlboss feminism, Ione came to grips with spending 20 hours a day in bed. Watching identity politics become social media fodder, from the confines of her sickbed she began to pick apart our obsession with self-care, personal branding, productivity, and #LivingYourBestLife.
