Best Seller in Pain Management / Best Seller in Physical Impairments

The Untold Story of Kim has gotten great reviews. This powerful true story of one woman’s triumph over pain will lead you to hate doctors, lawyers, and insurance companies. By the time you finish, you’ll have fallen in love with Kim. 
This deeply inspiring tale is destined to become the most important book ever written about chronic pain and pain management in today’s healthcare environment. 


Here’s what the readers are saying: 

This is a heart-wrenching story that never abandons hope. Kim is hurt in a job-related accident, and instead of healing, she is left with chronic suffering. Ed tries everything imaginable to help her conquer the pain. When things seem as if they can’t get any worse, more misery piles on. The author lays bare his fear and anxiety concerning the bleakness of the SYSTEM, but his compass points to a solution, if he can just zero in on the coordinates. Author Robinson’s narrative is fascinating, and Kim’s fight is determined, sending a message of hope to many who suffer from a chronic illness. I loved the book.


 We never get to see behind what’s going on with chronic pain. The dependency doctors have on hard core drugs is appalling.
This is an awesome book that encourages the reader to become a survivor.
I had a hard time putting this book down. Very inspiring for those who suffer from chronic pain no matter the cause and those who will do whatever to help. No one ever knows what that person is going through or feeling at that time unless it is yourself or caregiver. I am one of those and it is hard since the pain can not be seen.
My best friend recommended this book to me, we both have a chronic illness that causes a lot of pain every day. I found myself in tears, and laughed a little too, but what amazes me the most is just what you were willing to do for your wife, and just how strong she is as a woman that was suffering. Thank you so much for sharing Kim’s story, and yours! It has opened my eyes a little more and has given me hope that someday things will get better. I know my husband would move mountains for me, so I can appreciate just how truly special your relationship is. 🙂
I absolutely loved this book! Kim’s story touched me and made me open my eyes to the stress in my life and the effects it has on the chronic illness I have.
The writers,compassion for his wife brought me to tears. He moved mountains to help her become well again.
Your story is an inspiration. I will be having my husband and best friend read this.
Near the end of the book I wrote this: Kim is a survivor of the highest degree. She took what threatened to destroy her and came out thriving. 
  Now she hopes that the questions her case asks can someday be answered. She wants to highlight the deficiencies in our treatment of chronic pain. She wants to propose that there is another way. She wishes to raise awareness of all these topics. Most of all she hopes that someone out there will be inspired to carry on. If her story can give hope to someone who is about to give up, it will all be worthwhile. If someone can’t stand the pain any longer, but understands that Kim made it out, this book will be a success. 
  If only a handful of people read it, but those that do are able to continue their fight, then every word will be worth it. Chronic pain doesn’t have to be forever. It’s real and it’s painful and it’s debilitating, but it can be defeated. 
  Let Kim be your guiding light.

The Untold Story of Kim, Part 2

  Recently the need to write the story of my lovely wife Kim has consumed me. See part 1 for the background story. https://quityourjobandliveonaboat.wordpress.com/2014/02/24/the-untold-story-of-the-lovely-miss-kim/

  I sat down to start writing and something very odd happened. I slammed out 5000 words in one sitting. I spent an entire day just typing away like a madman. Now this has never been my style. I’d write maybe 500 words at a time. Take a few days to think. Wait for inspiration. Only when I had a clear vision in my mind about what I wanted to say next, would I sit down and actually write.

  The very next day I poured out another 5000 words. The entire story was all coming to me at once. I couldn’t stop. On day three I had to tend to the business of being an author. My inboxes were all full. I had several requests for review copies of my last book. I had tons of Facebook messages on my author page: https://www.facebook.com/quityourjobandliveonaboat

 I had to make a trip to the post office and manage some household chores. When I finally sat down to write again, another 5000 words came out. Telling this story has taken over my life. I can’t wait to get it all down. Kim has been reading along, and it’s brought her to tears several times. She started to relive some times she’d purposely forgotten. Don’t worry though, it has a happy ending. For anyone who read Leap of Faith / Quit Your Job And Live On A Boat, this is the back story. Leap of Faith was all about finding happiness. It did not disclose what Kim was going through the entire time. The Untold Story of Kim lays it all out there. It’s an honest account, telling her true story of pain. It will make you hate our current health care system. It will make you hate big insurance companies. It will make you hate lawyers. 

  It will however, cause you to fall in love with Kim. If you are a sufferer from chronic pain, it will give you hope. It’s also a love story! I can’t write it without trying to convey how much we cared for each other and how it got us through extremely difficult times. 

  Now I’m going to cut this post short . . . so I can get back to writing The Untold Story of Kim.

In this book I allude to the healing properties of the ocean and the beach. Here’s a shot of Kim on a deserted island beach. She weighed about 110 pounds in this photo. She’s 5′ 11″ tall. I have a shot of her down to 102, but she wouldn’t let me post it. She says it’s ugly. 


The Untold Story Of The Lovely Miss Kim

  Before our Job Quitting Boat Living journey began, our lives were changed forever by a simple accident. My lovely wife Kim suffered a minor injury while on the job. She was in some pain, but there was nothing that would make anyone think the long term consequences would be bad. 

  Time passed and the pain got worse. Doctors scratched their heads. More tests! More doctors, X-rays, MRIs, EMGs, etc. The pain grew steadily worse. Eventually, it was discovered that Kim was suffering from RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy). The key to curing RSD is to diagnose and treat it very early. We missed out on that window. The long term prognosis for late stage treatment is not good. Essentially, the nerves are still passing along a pain signal to the brain, even though the original injury has healed. The pathway of pain is stuck in the ON position. 

  We were introduced to the world of pain management. Narcotics, among other drugs, were prescribed heavily. Kim’s quality of life plummeted. Her pain multipied many times over. She exhibited all the so called classic symptoms of RSD.

  • Continuous burning or throbbing pain, usually in your arm, leg, hand or foot
  • Sensitivity to touch or cold
  • Swelling of the painful area
  • Changes in skin temperature — at times your skin may be sweaty; at other times it may be cold
  • Changes in skin color, which can range from white and mottled to red or blue
  • Changes in skin texture, which may become tender, thin or shiny in the affected area
  • Changes in hair and nail growth
  • Joint stiffness, swelling and damage
  • Muscle spasms, weakness and loss (atrophy)
  • Decreased ability to move the affected body part


  My lovely wife was now a helpless crippled shell of her former self. To shorten this tale tremendously, She’s doing better now. After 5 years of unbearable pain, some near death experiences and scores of doctors, tests, treatments, drugs, spinal injections, epidurals . . .  She has finally started to lead a normal life. Guess what? The doctors didn’t fix her. Nope, they didn’t do anything to make her well. 

It became a case of not what they were doing for her, but rather what they were doing to her. I’ve decided to write a book, in honor of the lovely MIss Kim and all those who’ve suffered with RSD or similar chronic pain syndromes. I want to show how modern medicine was killing my wife. 


  How did we get off the drug merry-go-round and start down the path to actual healing? I’m saving that for the book., but you may be surprised as to how Kim cured herself with NO doctor’s input. I can’t wait to start putting her story into words. As her caregiver for those difficult years, I’m the only one who knows exactly the depth of her pain, her fears and frustrations. I’m also the only one who knows just how brave and determined she really is. 

  I love my wife. After you read her story, you’ll love her too.
