Title: Being Sick Well
Author: Jeffrey H. Boyd, MD, MPH
My Take on this Title:
I appreciate Dr. Boyd’s honesty as well as his practical compassion. He, not only shares stories that may reflect your own, but gives sage advice (from both sides of the stethoscope) around issues we need to hear about defining the nature of illness, surviving with dignity and hope, finding meaning in illness, and helping individuals and families facing chronic illness. Bottom line: Whether it be back pain or something more serious, chronic illness doesn’t have to rule people’s lives.
