Love in the Time of Chronic Illness

I wanted to let you know about the reissue of my book under the new title: Love in the Time of Chronic Illness: How to Fight the Sickness Not Each Other. 

The book is a deep and practical guide that helps couples, and any patient/caregiver partners, stay connected and grow even stronger as they cope with the powerful effects of illness or trauma.

If this experience touches you or someone you know, I encourage you to pre-order this book on Amazon, in either Kindle or print versions.  While the book will officially be available on June 12, pre-ordering now will help boost the book's visibility.

Love in the Time of Chronic Illness has many stories from couples who share the lessons they learned about living with illness or trauma:
  • Frank and Linda, whose stroke caused them to rebalance their relationship in new ways
  • Abe who, after being Betty's primary caregiver for 30 years as multiple sclerosis stole more and more of her abilities, decided that he had to bring joy back into his life
  • Francis and Ted, who discovered levels of intimacy and authentic communication they believe would not have been possible without the intrusion of her chronic pain condition
  • Robin and Chuck, who used "active coping" to stay as close to "normal" as possible during his battle with cancer 
You'll also read the advice of a range of experts who offer many strategies for coping - emotionally and practically.  This new edition has an additional chapter for health care providers and health care organizations. Finally, strangely, for a book about such a serious subject, it's a good read.

So, if you know anyone going through this experience, or if you just want to help launch this important book, please pre-order the book on Amazon. If you like the book, I would greatly appreciate your writing a positive Amazon review. Here are some reviews that were written about the earlier version of this book.

Thank you for for anything you can do to help get the word out about Love in the Time of Chronic Illness.  The experience touches so many of us, and this book can really help.  If you can, please forward this email, and post on Facebook and Twitter.
