5-star review on Amazon: "This book gives hope to those suffering from chronic illness by letting them know they are not alone, that there is help out there, and there are things to do to get you through those dark and scary times. There were very limited and often outdated books available to help my family during our initial struggle dealing with a child with a chronic illness. In the beginning life was a lonely and living hell. I was blessed to find Sue and a wonderful group of people online, who shared similar experiences and showed us how to survive in our "new normal"!"
One chapter in particular struck me was A Plan B Day. Taking mental inventories, checking your to do lists, delegating to others and dropping guilt. These are strategies we all can use and Suzan lays this all out for us.
Right now in our lives of social distancing and staying at home restrictions Suzan's vast knowledge from her life with her illness is a treasure for all of us to follow."
5 star review on Amazon: “After years of the heartbreak of having two children with chronic illness, this book has been a godsend. Every single page has me nodding, feeling validated, knowing I need to be more forgiving of myself, and feeling supported. Sue shares such an amazingly healthy way to look at life with chronic illness. I would choose my favorite thoughts and sections but it's all of them! This is a rare book that I know I will pull and reread for years to come.”
