A warm review by a mental health provider came in today for my little book:
“Since laughing is (of course) therapeutic, folks with chronic illness would benefit from reading your gem. They’d also get the bonus of very helpful tips, not to mention your compassion.”
-Ann Freese, LCMHC
This is wonderful encouragement as I try to hone my writing through blogging, essay writing, and a someday 2nd edition of the book (in paper and including my colorful graphically-designed thoughts!) It’s a journey that much to my own frustration, is often interrupted by my own chronic illness. But the benefits far outweigh the costs, as writing enables me to endure the mental battles that accompany physical illness. Especially when someone thinks the writing is funny. Now that is a great feeling.
