With 2020 just around the corner, I have been thinking about blog posts for next year.  One of my goals, besides keeping the Living Our Best Life weekly questions, is to review at least 6 books that are written by an author who is chronically ill.

Not only do I know what it is like to live with multiple chronic illnesses, I also know how much work goes into writing and self-publishing a book and the enormous amount of effort it takes to promote your publications.  So next year I would like to help out my  fellow spoonies and promote their work.

If you would like me to do a review of your book, that I will purchase, please leave me a message in the comment section.  The book does not have to be about  illness, but the author must live with at least one chronic ailment.

I look forward to reading your work!

We read to know we are not alone. —C.S. Lewis

 

I love to learn and therefore I read.  Reading is something I have struggled with since I was a young child, eventually discovering that I was dyslexic.  But, I kept at it, and now I  enjoy reading, although I am a slow and struggle with comprehension and retention.  So, if I think the book is important, I take notes.

Through this journey called life, I have read a lot of books, mostly nonfiction.  For a while, I mostly read books on natural healing, trying to discover ways to help myself where western medicine continued to fail me.

There are several books that have helped me on this health journey and I would like to share them with all of you.  I realize all of our journeys are unique, but I feel that these three books could be beneficial to some.

The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan by David Perlmutter, MD

The UltraMind Solution by Mark Hyman, MD

Tired of Being Tired by Jesse Lynn Hanley, MD and Nancy Deville

 

So the question today is:

What book(s), if any, have you found helpful in your journey to heal?

Please take a moment to leave a comment below.  I truly believe we are here to assist each other in life, and your recommendation may be the one that brings someone relief.

Thank you ~
