This is such a valuable book for anyone with a chronic disease and for other family members.
It contains one of my favorite quotes by William Arthur Ward: "For every achievement there is a price. For every victory there is a problem. For every triumph there is a sacrifice". ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0894801392, Paperback)

This is an essential layperson-Ys guide to coping with chronic illness-- or the 50 million Americans who suffer from diseases such as arthritis, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis, and for the people who care for them.

With firsthand insights of one who has been there, Sefra Pitzele details every phase, from the frightening onset of disease through the process of readjustment to the successful adaptation to new norms. She addresses the issues that most concern the chronically ill: dealing with relationships; participating in sexual activities; helping your doctor help you; managing pain and depression; maintaining humor and dignity; more. She details adaptive living strategies from new ways to shop and cook to ingenious modifications at home and at work. There are nationwide listings of helpful organizations, support groups, products, and services. 44,000 copies in print.
