and am looking for a couple of suggestions. I'm trying to learn to relax - in fact, looking to learn how to meditate. Take some assigned time to center myself. I've been told by good friends & by my physical therapist & GP that this can help me deal with the daily pain of chronic illness. I'm also scoping out books on living with a chronic illness. One book I'm looking to get is Living a Healthy Life with a Chronic Illness. Do any of you have suggestions for books on these topics? I don't want to waste any of my well earned dollars, but feel it's time to move onto the next step - acceptance & helping myself to heal in a more natural way. (I will continue to take medications as prescribed, but maybe if I can learn new ways I won't need the level of medications, especially the pain medications.) Thanks - I appreciate any & all suggestions.
