Surviving and Thriving with an Invisible Chronic Illness
How to Stay Sane and Live One Step Ahead of Your Symptoms Do you live with a chronic, debilitating, yet invisible condition? You may feel isolated, out of step, judged, lonely, or misunderstoodâ€”and thatâ€™s on top of dealing with the symptoms of your actual illness. Take heart. You are not alone, although sometimes it can feel that way. This book offers peer-to-peer support to help you stay sane, be your own advocate, and get back to living your life. This compelling guide is written for anyone suffering with an illness no one can seeâ€”such as postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), Lyme disease, lupus, dysautonomia, or even multiple sclerosis (MP). This book is about living with a complicated, invisible conditionâ€”from how to balance sex, dating, and relationships to handling work and school with unavoidable absences. Youâ€™ll also learn to navigate judg-y or skeptical relatives and strangers andâ€”most importantlyâ€”manage your medical care. Suffering from a chronic illness doesnâ€™t mean you canâ€™t live an active, engaged life. This book will show you how.
