“How To Be Sick” by Toni Bernard
Many of my patients suffer from chronic pain. Some people have been able bodied all their lives and then are suddenly faced with an injury or an illness which is life changing. Accepting and embracing a change in ability or illness can be challenging and requires courage. Mindfullness and wisdom is the key to finding a path to living with greater ease and freedom. This book by Toni Bernard has been a lifesaver to many of my patients and friends.
“You cannot help but come away with a new perspective and a new awareness of life’s beauty despite chronic bodily pain. The choice of inner peace and compassion is available to all of us. There is a lot to embrace in this lovely work of art.” -Chronicle: The Journal of the American Chronic Pain Association
