Social worker Charnas employs her training, the experience of others, and her own affliction with chronic fatigue syndrome to offer guidance to sufferers of chronic illness. She addresses a wide range of daily and long-term emotional, practical, financial/legal, and spiritual issues and encourages readers to take care of themselves, react to others, and build the best life possible. By discovering the lessons learned and suggested in her book, Charnas feels that her experiences are the result of her choices, not of the circumstances imposed upon her by illness.
VERDICT Full of valuable tips and resources that would benefit all afflicted with chronic illness and those who care about them.
