Have all her books and hope there is more
Would you listen to How to Live Well with Chronic Pain and Illness again? Why?
I think my heading says it all.I got 'how to wake up' first as it was the most relevant to me and liked it so much got the others.I love the message in these books , you don't have to be chronically ill to get a lot from them - They are honest , insightful and very easy to listen to.
What about Deon Vozov’s performance did you like?
The narrator is excellent - love her voice and she is a great match for the material. This is very important to me when listening to an audio book.I would keep an eye out for her in the future.

Very Helpful for ICI
I've been living with invisible chronic illness for over half my life and I found this book very helpful. The author discusses mindfulness and meditation a lot. I knew nothing about those things before reading this, so it inspired me to learn once I had the opportunity. This book is a must read for those with debilitating chronic illness.
