At 28, Cory Martin thought she had it all, a budding career as a writer in Hollywood, an apartment of her own, and a healthy obsession with yoga. But when she found herself on the floor of her apartment wailing into the phone, 'but I don’t want to be sick,' her entire world came crashing down.

A doctor had just revealed that she had multiple sclerosis, a potentially debilitating disease, her good friend was getting married that weekend and the only people she wanted to call were her parents. In a time when she was supposed to be coming into her own as an adult, all she could think was, who's going to want to marry me now?

As she embarked on a medical quest, subjecting herself to countless MRIs and a painful spinal tap that landed her in the ER, Cory simultaneously threw herself head first into dating. But no matter how many doctors she saw or men she met there would never be a cure for MS or a surefire way to find "the one."

Praise for Love Sick:

"Unflinchingly honest and vulnerable, Martin’s book says all the things people need to hear and few are brave enough to voice.  Full of humor, absurd situations, and wry observations, her story inspires us to never stop looking for love." - Stephanie Savage, co-creator Gossip Girl

"I expected Cory Martin's memoir about a girl's diagnosis and struggle with multiple sclerosis to be heart-breaking, but I didn't expect it to also be a hilarious, hip, and sexy trip through her adventures in dating and her unjaded quest for true love. You'll cry but more importantly you'll laugh." - Marianne Wibberley, writer Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, National Treasure

"This is an honest book that does not hesitate in pulling its punches. Packed with emotion, it will leave you turning the pages in anticipation" - New York Journal of Books

"Love Sick is one of those books you start reading and can't put down. Cory Martin's story is told in a raw, honest, and raucous manner. She had me laughing out loud and crying all in one sitting." - Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy, Amazon Studios

"Candid, wise, funny, heartbreaking and ultimately inspirational: in an unpredictable world, Cory Martin's Love Sick reminds us of what really matters." - Matt Ward, writer Madam Secretary, Suburgatory, My Name Is Earl

"Many women spend their thirties trying to get settled in their careers, friendships, and love lives, Cory Martin spent hers trying to do all that while dealing with an insane medical curveball. An incredible story told with honesty, humor, and hope." - Leila Gerstein, creator Hart of Dixie
