I read this today. What a beautiful scripture.

He is the light and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death.
(Book of Mormon | Mosiah 16:9)

Here is the review of a book published by Cedar Fort. If you or anyone you know suffers from chronic illness, this is an excellent resource. I enjoyed reading the book, and it's full of excellent information.


When Someone You love Has Chronic Illness, written by Dr. Tamara McClintock Greenberg, brings the important topic of chronic illness to the forefront, allowing readers to become aware of all aspects of a problem most all of us will have to face in our lives. It is a concise review of every facet of this issue—brought into focus in everyday language with examples we can all relate to.
As a retired Marriage and Family Therapist, I had many clients faced with situations such as Dr. Greenberg describes in her book. I would have loved a valuable tool such as this book to discuss with my clients. It will become a guide and support to all who read it.
Dr. Greenberg discusses the following topics:
1.      Living Longer
2.      How to talk about illness
3.      How to deal with doctors
4.      Addressing denial
5.      Can you give too much
6.      Getting support
7.      Coping with loved one’s pain
8.      Staying connected
9.      Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
10.  Dealing with loss
Thank you Dr. Greenberg for this well-written volume of pertinent research presented with in-depth discussions, and shared through compassionate understanding.
I recommend this book as a healing tool for anyone who has been associated with chronically ill loved ones.
