This book is very helpful if you have been newly diagnosed with a chronic illness! The book offers not only support and understanding for your new situation but also guidelines and practical advice for helping you live with illness. I was able to immediately apply a lot of the advice in the book, such as: finding clarity about my values, setting small attainable goals and taking steps toward them daily/weekly, creating a health binder with all of your medical tests and info (very useful!), focus ...more

Sometimes a book like this is needed for someone to comprehend what exactly is going on and how to cope with such.
Even though we all tell everybody else how to deal with things, we never quite "get it".
This book will help you through some of that.

I received the book for free through Goodreads Firstreads.

Although she doesn't address it, Horn's advice is applicable to those of us with chronic mental illness. Many of her strategies could improve anyone's life, regardless of their state of health. Others serve mainly to ease the burden of those living with chronic illness. Either way, her strategies can simplify your life. Some are challenging, but all are feasible.

Although the "ten tips" seem like common sense, they are presented in a way and with details that make this worth the read. I have RA and this book opened my eyes to how I am taking a back seat to my own care and things I can do to change that. I received this book as a Goodreads first read book. Thank you.

For anyone coming to terms with a chronic illness this book is like the friend you need to push you in the right direction. Written in a warm, realistic tone the advice and stories of real women are invaluable.

An invaluable book! I feel fortunate to have discovered this book. It's a guide, really, that will help me live (and hopefully thrive) with a chronic medical condition.
