Toni Bernhard writes for Psychology Today in a blog called Turning Straw into Gold. Toni lives with chronic illness. In fact she spends most of her days in bed with flu like symptoms that began over ten years ago.
I have read Toni’s book How to Be Seek: A Buddhist Inspired Guide For The Chronically Ill And Their Caregivers. This is a wonderful book about dealing with chronic illness and can be used by anyone. Toni has written a second book, How to Wake Up: A Buddhist Inspired Guide To Navigating Joy and Sorrow. In a recent post on How Not To Treat Yourself With Chronic Illness , she talks about how she treated herself when first diagnosed with chronic illness and states that this topic is expanded more in her new book. I have Toni’s book in my list of books to be purchased and read soon.
