    Default Interesting Book

    hey everyone. it seems like recently i've been having a problem with how my health issues are effecting my relationships. and my stomach doctor (lovely lady..one of the few great drs) suggested a book for me "The Chronic Illness Experience"...its a pretty cool book about a bunch of people with several different diseases and they are talk about how it affects them day to day. It isn't a book about being sick and hopeless. i thought maybe some people would like it.

    Thanks! Amazon has used copies starting at $13.99. It sounds helpful. Maybe we could have a discussion about the book if anyone else is interesting in reading it.

    That sound really good to me too. I'll order it this week from amazon unless I find it at Border's first. I just bought a book that sounds a bit similar today called "Unexpected Blessings: Finding Hope and Healing in the Face of Illness" by Roxanne Black, who was diagnosed with SLE as a teenager. It's good so far, but I've just started it.

    i just went to borders, and this is what i found out.

    the author is Sheri Register

    the book is out of print, so much order used copies

    i paid 25.00 including shipping and will be april 4

    so, there you go, maybe it can be found cheaper somewhere else, but i drove all the way the borders, so i took the lazy way and ordered it while ther.

    look forward to reading, sharing and learning
