She lights a fire for selfcompassion and puts stress in its place, while providing empowering suggestions for living with grace and Chronic Resilience. I highly recommend this groundbreaking book. Kris Carr, New York Times bestselling author of Sexy Crazy Diet-- "Reviews"
I highly recommend Chronic Resilience, not only to those who suffer from chronic illness but to those who love them. Danea Horn promises that her book will help the chronically ill become care givers to themselves, and she delivers - magnificently. People with chronic illness need concrete tools for learning how to live with grace and purpose despite their difficult circumstances. This book offers those tools. It describes in detail ten practical guidelines for managing the stress and challenges of illness. Exercises are included so that readers can make each guideline their own and learn to incorporate it into their everyday lives. In addition, Ms. Horn not only shares her personal experiences working with these practical tools (which feels like chatting with an old friend), but also includes intimate conversations with nine other women who suffer from chronic illness. This book will help you transform the stress of chronic illness into a life of acceptance, purpose, and gratitude. It's a gem. -Toni Bernhard, author of How to be Sick: A BuddhistInspired Guide for the Chronically Ill and their Caregivers-- "Reviews"
Danea provides an invaluable perspective on how to be resilient when battling a chronic illness. A must read to help you navigate the emotions successfully. -Lori Hartwell, author of Chronically Happy: Joyful Living in Spite of a Chronic Illness-- "Reviews"
