Many spiritual caregivers, including chaplains, spiritual directors and clergy, are unaware of how they can support people with chronic health conditions. This book combines insights on chronic illness with spiritual care skills and suggestions to enhance well-being for people living with long-term illness. Using a narrative approach, the author reflects on the stories of two women - Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, who travels from Kansas (a state of health) to Oz (an illness experience), alongside the author's personal experiences of managing an incurable autoimmune disease. Chapters will include guidelines and exercises that help equip caregivers to facilitate healing with people who live with long-term health conditions.

"The Gratitude Curve" is a study in author Gregg Kirk's decade-long struggle through chronic illness. Not simply a memoir of one person's conquest over a life-threatening affliction, the book focuses on the attitudes and hidden lessons that changed the trajectory of the author's life for the better. With a focus on the global epidemic of Lyme disease, Kirk dives into the unsettling details of his own symptoms, varied treatments (both failed and successful), and knowledge gained from his experiences. The book makes a dramatic departure from the expected focus on physical treatments to the uncharted realms of spirituality and mystical healing and their very real impact on patients of chronic diseases. Taking this further, Kirk meticulously details his experiences in Brazil with the world-famous healer John of God. In his accounts, the author describes not only his own healing miracles but those he witnessed of patients deemed terminal by their doctors and literally given up for dead.

Most of us believe that healing miracles for the chronically ill are real, but rare. The doctrines that we have been fed, or our life's experiences, have led us to conclude that God heals mostly through medicine-and if not through medicine, then not at all. Perhaps we had a relative who had sky-high faith for a healing miracle and yet died, or have trodden the path of faith healing, but been discouraged by ministers who admonished us to "just have more faith!" Perhaps we don't know how much God really loves us. While our faith in miracles and His love may not be enough, thankfully, God is, and He is willing to heal more people supernaturally-in body, mind and spirit-than are being healed today. He can heal when medicine fails to provide a complete recovery, and even when it doesn't! This book proposes to the helpless and hopeless, another path to wellness, that isn't based upon wishful thinking and random chance, but rather, buried Biblical truths and the testimonials of thousands throughout the world. It offers unique insights into healing which include: how dysfunctional biochemistry and emotional trauma affect our ability to believe in a loving God who heals; why people who have faith for miracles aren't always made well; why God sometimes chooses other healing methods besides a supernatural encounter to heal, and how we can better position ourselves to receive a miracle from Him.

Suffering is inescapable in this world. Jesus told us we would face perilous trials and that even our bodies would feel the effects of the Fall. For women dealing with chronic illness, most books offer quick-fix counseling or devotional verses taken out of context, helpful only for momentary encouragement. For true and lasting comfort we must dig deeper into God's Word and the context in which those much-used passages were written. In Chronic Love, Brooke Bartz reveals a deeply raw and descriptive account of life with a chronic and debilitating illness, and she shares with readers how comfort and strength can be found through the Truth in God's Word. Specifically designed for women who daily battle chronic illness, Chronic Love's goal is to provide solid Scriptural encouragement for the fight.

"I was just like you 15 years ago- sleeping for 22 hours a day, unable to move an eyelash because of muscle pain and feeling like I was going slowly insane. I never in a million years thought I'd be able to fully recovery from M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), an illness which often goes by the name of CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome)." In her debut book, 'Finding M.E.', health mentor and writer Katie Manning reveals the unconventional story behind her full recovery from 10 years of chronic illness to a life she thought she'd never experience. Through her honest and candid story, Katie encourages others to take a completely radical and fresh approach to healing. This is not your average recovery story, but then again, this is not your average illness. This is a journey from diagnosis through relapse, all the way to recovery via stumbles, set-backs and a sprinkling of spirituality. "This is me, finding M.E."

A self-help guide for those who are chronically ill. When we live with a chronic illness or disability, our spirit is tested. And though we may have no say in our sickness, how we meet its spiritual challenge is entirely up to us. This is the message of Martha Cleveland's heartening book, which maps the spiral of emotional pain that steals the energy of the chronically ill--and shows how to turn this spiral into a path toward spiritual growth. Cleveland herself turned to the Twelve Steps for support during almost two decades of a recurring illness that defied diagnosis. In this book, she shares what the Twelve Step program teaches her about living with chronic illness--coping with feelings of pain, anger, hopelessness, and isolation--and about offsetting such negative emotions with spiritual wellness. An invitation to choose joy over despair, her book reveals how chronic illness can open the spirit to acceptance, serenity, and fulfillment.

With the onset of chronic illness, an individual and family's world, previously taken for granted, is often undone. The actual and potential losses from illness impact on family, friends, physicians, therapists, nurses, and others in profound and unexpected ways. Through his own honest, personal account and the testimony of others, Robert Shuman takes us inside the illness experience to help us better grasp the daily inner lives of the ailing person and his or her family. As our aging population lives longer, chronic illness touches more and more of us. Whether as patient or parent, nurse or spouse, colleague or therapist, we need to have greater knowledge and understanding of the intricacies of chronic illness.Robert Shuman maps out the many dimensions of illness and invites the reader to explore its challenging terrain in a way that provides opportunities for self-discovery and reflection. In lyrical prose, he opens up new ways of thinking about the psychology of illness and healing. He suggests, for example, that illness symptoms can have a generative effect on a person's imaginative and creative possibilities, and that the socially despised events of illness and disability offer new ways of being once sought through the work of religion. Drawing on the fields of behavioral and family medicine, medical anthropology and sociology, moral and bioethical philosophies, and family, existential, cognitive, Jungian, and archetypal psychotherapies, among others, The Psychology of Chronic Illness raises provocative questions for the professional caregiver as well as for those living with illness and disability.This book will help anyone touched by illness, personally or professionally, to support those living with chronic illnesses and disabilities; to cope with multiple impacts on work, relationships, social roles, individual dreams, and disappointments; to listen to and voice suffering and fears, grief and anger, questions of values and moral doubts; and to acknowledge loss and mourning as a “common ground” that we all share. This book offerrs specific resources to the caregiver and aids the professional in his or her ethical obligation to give. Moreover, Shuman's voice is one of compassion, reminding us how to hold on to or recover hope, meaning, and morale during times of affliction and distress.
