TEMECULA, CA, CALIF., June 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Coping with an invisible illness when friends, family and coworkers simply "don't get it" is the theme of a new eBook from the publisher of IG Living magazine. Chronic Inspiration: Heartfelt Perspectives on Life with Chronic Illness provides insights from patients, caregivers and IG Living staff writers on the challenges of living with chronic disease.
"As of 2013, about half of all adults—117 million people—suffer from one or more chronic health conditions, yet a whopping 96% don't look sick," says the book's editor, Ronale Tucker Rhodes. "Our goal with this book was to give a voice to those who refuse to let their diagnosis define who they are or what they can accomplish."
Poignant and personal, this compilation of stories is sure to uplift, challenge and inspire. Early reviews have been enthusiastic:
"Chronic Inspiration is a must read for any chronically ill patient or caregiver looking for inspiration and ways to find opportunities even in the most difficult of situations," said Dominick Spatafora, founder and president of the Neuropathy Action Foundation. "I encourage all in our community to read this and pass along to anyone who needs to better understand the emotions and difficulties of the chronic care community."
During its 90-day debut, Chronic Inspiration: Heartfelt Perspectives on Life with Chronic Illness is available for $6.99 exclusively on Amazon.com.
