Embracing Life-Living With Chronic Pain is about living life to the fullest and is especially directed to those who suffer from: Cancer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Depression, Fibromyalgia, Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis, or any other disease involving chronic pain on a daily basis.
It is based on a one-year journey dealing with these very issues. What makes Embracing Life unique and separate from many other books is that it is written in the form of light poetry, which most readers can easily relate to. Readers are encouraged to maintain their own personal journals, which they can refer to after reading the writer's thoughts for any given day. Thus, it can be read at any juncture and re-read many times.
The writer's desire is to involve the reader in their own private journey involving chronic pain, be it physical, emotional, or a combination of both. There are many options open in dealing with chronic pain, and the author provides her own unique perspective along this journey.
Although there are many books written by Doctors who treat chronic pain, Embracing Life offers the personal perspective of a real patient living with daily chronic pain and her way to manage the same.
