Here is a little about the free ebook on chronic illness...


The journey of living with chronic illness or of adapting to life with chronic pain or disability can be a tough challenge.

When we lose our health, we often lose many other things too:

  • We can lose our identity as mother, father, worker, happy person, busy person, creative person. You name it, the illness may take away our ability to perform that role
  • We can lose relationships and watch those we love who are unable to accept the illness drop out of our lives
  • We may lose our job
  • We may have to move from where we live to somewhere adapted for the illness.

We often receive little instruction on how to adapt to our new life. Alternatively we may suddenly receive all sorts of advice! and feel confused by different people advising us to approach illness in different ways.

Knowing about the 7 stages of grief of chronic illness helps us to find self love and self compassion at a time when it is much needed.

For 14 years, I was bedbound with the severe CFS /ME. I continue to live with the illness today.

The knowledge of the 7 stages of grief of illness helped (and continues to help) me to grieve my losses, move towards acceptance, and create a new life at a new level of health.

In a place of acceptance, we also increase our chances of improved health.

Please know that grieving is a process. Only recently, I have been using a technique that has allowed me to feel more of the shock and grief I felt (but did not feel) when I first got ill back in 1991! It feels good to feel it and let it go.

My intention and my prayer is that this ebook on the stages of grief of chronic illness helps you to find self acceptance, peace and self compassion during a time of chronic illness.
