“Coming to terms with this reality was a lot like
accepting the death of a loved one.”

You
Don’t LOOK Sick!: Living Well with Invisible Chronic Illness
chronicles a patient’s true-life accounts and her
physician’s compassionate commentary as they take a journey
through the three stages of chronic illness—Getting Sick, Being
Sick, and Living Well. This resource helps you focus on building a
meaningful life that contains illness as opposed to a life of
frustration and fear. Designed for patients in at all stages of the
chronic illness journey, this book will also be illuminating for
caregivers and loved ones.
From the book:
/>“I’ve learned that having a chronic illness is not a
prison sentence. It does not mean I must spend the rest of my life
feeling depressed and angry, locked away from the world inside my little
sick box. It does not mean that I am useless and no longer have any
gifts to share, but it may mean that I must develop some new
ones.”

You Don’t LOOK Sick! addresses
practical aspects of chronic illness, such as:
  • hiring a
    doctor
  • managing chronic pain
  • coping with
    grief and the loss of function
  • winning battles with
    health and disability insurers
  • countering the social bias
    against the chronically ill
  • recognizing the limitations
    of chronics illness care and charting a path for change
In You
Don’t LOOK Sick!: Living Well with Invisible Chronic Illness, you
will find stories, dialogue, humor, examples, and analogy of the three
stages to illustrate a challenging but navigable journey. You will also
find suggested reading materials for learning to live well, medical
Internet resources, illness-specific Web sites, names and addresses of
national associations, and a bibliography of medical books by topic. The
short chapters and straightforward language of the book will be helpful
for readers who are weary and dispirited.
From the authors:
/>“I've learned that having a chronic illness is not a prison
sentence. It does not mean I must spend the rest of my life feeling
depressed and angry, locked away from the world inside my little sick
box. It does not mean that I am useless and no longer have any gifts to
share, but it may mean that I must develop some new ones.”
/>—Joy H. Selak
“My goal is to work with patients
so that, like world class athletes, they can perform at their peak
capacity. My job is more than giving answers; I must educate, counsel
and encourage patients to set goals and implement a personal care
program as well as take appropriate medications.”
—Dr.
