Chronic Christmas Goes Down Under!
Chronic Christmas has been a little North America-focused. Until now, that is. Thank you so much to Arthritic Chick for my first Australian review!
"Lene Andersen describes her new book ‘Chronic Christmas : Surviving the Holidays with a Chronic Illness’ as “an Advent calendar full of self-care tips to help people with chronic illness savour the holiday season as never before” and that’s exactly what it is. I love it when my expectations are met, and exceeded!
As you might expect, the book takes the format of an Advent Calendar, with each day offering up a tip or some advice for the Christmas Season. What makes the book special is that it offers ideas for not only the person who is managing their chronic illness, but also the people around them. Their family and friends are given specific ideas on how to make the Christmas season less stressful for the chronically ill.
That alone makes the book worth its weight in gold. As someone who struggles to ask for help, now I’m just going to read out each ‘day’ to my sulking teenagers and let them know exactly what they should be doing!"
