Toni Bernhard, author of How to Be Sick: A Buddhist Inspired Guide for the Chronically Ill and their Caregivers inspired me with her way of dealing with being chronically ill. I have not had the pleasure yet of reading her newly released book Wake Up: A Buddhist-Inspired Guide to Navigating Joy and Sorrow. Toni writes from the comfort of her bed. In fact because of her illness, she spends a great deal of her time in bed.
Not only is she a wonderful author, Toni Bernhard writes for psychology today. I recently read her article 12 Tips from 12 Years Sick. Her 12 tips are insightful and are something I strive to remember and put into place. For those of you suffering from chronic illness, I think you will enjoy this article.
