Hi I would like to recommend a book about chronic illness that both myself and my husband have found to be really helpful. It is called: The Amazing Technicolour Pyjama Therapy ( and other ways to fight against life-changing illness) by Emily Ackerman. It is written by someone who used to work as a Dr, and has now been ill for many years with cfs, and is full of good humour, practical advice and how to open your heart to your faith when you are challenged by illness. She is a Christian and uses the trials of Joseph ( he of the fancy coat ) to begin each chapter, talking about how his trials changed him and helped him grow spiritually. There are chapters on loss, emotions, dealing with family, unwanted advice and managing your relationship with caregivers.There are also cartoons in the book, some of which made me laugh out loud. I think this book would be helpful for Christians, and also those not averse to Christianity, as there is a lot of other stuff in it.
