Abstract
"You DonÌt Look Sick chronicles one personÌs true-life story of illness and her physicians compassionate commentary as they journey through the four stages of chronic illnessÛGetting Sick, Being Sick, Grief and Acceptance and Living Well. The authors address such practical aspects as hiring a doctor, managing chronic pain, coping with grief and loss of function, winning battles with health and disability insurers, countering the social bias against the chronically ill, and recognizing the limitations of chronic illness care and charting a path for change and more. This warmhearted resource helps you focus on building a meaningful life as opposed to a life of frustration and fear. This book is thoroughly revised and updated based upon feedback from readers of the first edition. The authors have added a new section on Grief and Acceptance, address the passage of the Affordable Health Care Act and Dr. Overman has added practical travel tips that bring organization and focus to each phase of the journey. Designed for people at all stages of the chronic illness journey, this book is also illuminating for caregivers and loved ones"--from the Publisher

Abstract
Comfort, understanding, and advice for those who are suffering?and those who care for them.
Chronic illness creates many challenges, from career crises and relationship issues to struggles with self-blame, personal identity, and isolation. Beloved author Toni Bernhard addresses these challenges and many more, using practical examples to illustrate how mindfulness, equanimity, and compassion can help readers make peace with a life turned upside down.
In her characteristic conversational style, Bernhard shows how to cope and make the most of life despite the challenges of chronic illness. Benefit from:
? Mindfulness exercises to mitigate physical and emotional pain
? Concrete advice for negotiating the everyday hurdles of medical appointments, household chores, and social obligations
? Tools for navigating the strains illness can place on relationships
Several chapters are directed toward family and friends of the chronically ill, helping them to understand what their loved one is going through and how they can help.
Humorous and empathetic, Bernhard shares her own struggles and setbacks with unflinching honesty, offering invaluable support in the search to find peace and well-being.

Abstract
"This book is designed to help you manage your pain so that you can get on with living a satisfying, fulfilling life. Chronic pain includes many types of conditions from a variety of causes. Despite these differences, all readers of this book have one very important thing in common ? you are living with pain every day. To help you discover strategies and skills that will make a difference, this book emphasizes four concepts:
"1. Each person with chronic pain is unique. There is no one treatment or approach that is right for everybody.
"2. There are a number of things you can do to feel better. These things will not eliminate pain, but they will help you to better manage pain, and help you to become more active and more involved in life.
"3. With knowledge and experimentation, you are the best judge of which self-management tools and techniques are best for you.
"4. The responsibility for managing your chronic pain day-to-day rests with you, not anybody else. Many people can be of help to you ? your family and friends, your health care team. But, in the end, the responsibility for self-management is yours.
"Acknowledging that overcoming chronic pain is a daily challenge, this book provides you with the self-management tools to help you meet that challenge"--from Publisher

Abstract
This program addresses the most critical issues and problems concerning school, friends and family that challenge young people who are coping with serious and/or chronic conditions. Teens speak frankly from their experiences - sharing their concerns and advice with insight and humor. A boy describes his ways of dealing with Chrohn's; a girl copes with Juvenile Diabetes; and other teens that are in treatment for asthma, cancer and sickle cell anemia give facts, and dispel misconceptions. They all stress that they want to be treated as normal teenagers.

Abstract
"Drawing on her own deeply personal experiences, Ania Bula explores what it is like to live with unseen chronic disabilities. She paints a vibrant picture of what it is like to be diagnosed with two life-long debilitating conditions as a young adult and relates the challenges and frustrations of dealing with predatory alternative medicine practitioners, arrogant doctors, indifferent bureaucracies, and well-meaning friends and family who always seem to say either the wrong thing-or nothing at all. As she discovered, suddenly everyone's aunt is a health expert and everyone's fad diet a cure. Making matters worse, her physical torment quickly translated into mental stresses. Relationships became strained, while others, including all-important romantic ones, never had a chance to start at all. Wading through a constant stream of ignorance and lies, in a desperate attempt to find peace, to stop the pain, and to return to a more normal life, she submits to being stuffed with powders and magic potions, poked and prodded, and even "faith healed." With honesty and humor, she shares her journey of pain, suffering, and, ultimately, coping, both to help others gain some understanding about what it is like to live with chronic illness-and to help those who might similarly suffer feel less alone, so that they too might start living again.
"Drawing on the author's personal experiences with her own physical and mental health struggles, the book explores what it is like to live with chronic disabilities as a young adult"-- Provided by publisher.
