Abstract
My Kid is Back explains how family-based treatment can greatly reduce the severity of anorexia nervosa in children and adolescents, allowing the sufferer to return to normal eating patterns, and their families to return to normal family life.
In this book, ten families share their experiences of living with anorexia. Parents describe their frustrations in seeking help for their child and dealing with their behaviour and sufferers discuss how the illness gets into their mind and takes over their personality.
By focusing on the Maudsley family approach and expert advice from Professor Daniel Le Grange, and including clear lists of illness symptoms, strategies for parents and carers to follow, and information on getting further treatment and support, this book proves an essential resource for families who want to win the battle with anorexia nervosa.

Abstract
Fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, and chronic fatigue are often seen as interchangeable conditions, a belief held even by many health care providers. Nothing could be further from the truth-however, they do often coexist. Knowing if more than one of these disorders is present is extremely important, because the treatment for one of them can often exacerbate the problems caused by the others. Written by a registered nurse and a psychologist who has been treating these conditions since 1994, this book presents an integrative medical approach to these three disorders with a strong emphasis on utilizing and strengthening the mind-body connection to restore well-being. The authors begin with clear diagnostic guidelines for each condition and reference the latest scientific research on what causes these illnesses. Because many medical practitioners are relatively unfamiliar with these disorders, it can take several medical visits to arrive at a definitive diagnosis. Clear communication with medical personnel is key to diagnostic success. This book provides invaluable advice on how to describe symptoms, document health history, and keep a log of medical appointments. Included are interactive worksheets to facilitate these activities. The authors provide a thorough guide to numerous treatment options-from diet, exercise, and herbs to mindfulness meditation, yoga, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). They also offer techniques to dispel the "brain fog" that these illnesses can create, offer guidance on the psychological issues that accompany these chronic pain disorders, and provide advice on how to build a personal support team. The final chapter gives advice on how to navigate the health care system, including step-by-step instructions for preparing an application to the Social Security Administration for disability benefits. An extensive resource section provides a wealth of contact information for helpful agencies and organizations, good sources for medical supplies, and a wide selection of suggested further reading. In short, this integrative treatment guide will open the door not only to physical recovery but also to emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.

Abstract
Spencer was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma at the age of six. Tracey and Steve did what most parents try to do: provide a fun and stimulating environment for their kids to grow in and reach their full potential. Foster did what brothers do: he offered up his bone marrow and rode shotgun in the all-terrain electric assault vehicle. Scupper did what sinister Portuguese Water Dogs do: he tried to eat the house one piece of furniture at a time and displace the "owner" from his spot in the bed. And Spencer? Spencer played soccer, sailed boats, built windmills, skipped a lot of school and developed a serious teenage drug habit. Along the way, Steve wrote this deeply personal, hilarious, and utterly moving collection of stories. They spilled out of his brain and onto the keyboard as there is not enough room for happy optimism and utter terror to coexist. I'll Shave my Head Too is an incredible balance between readability, humour, and emotional impact.
