It is a very good book made up of experiences from people with chronic diseases such as fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, etc. This does not seem full of positivity but on the contrary because we are aware of the fragility of life, of its richness too.

A “must read” for chronically ill patients, their families, and friends! I highly recommend When Bodies Break for an in-depth understanding at living with a chronic illness.

Part Two gives information in navigating the medical system, dealing with emotions, creating income, etc.

Not my sort of book........
