Summary, etc.:
"Transformative practices from the beloved bestseller. In 2001, Toni Bernhard got sick and, to her and her partner's bewilderment, stayed that way. As they faced the confusion, frustration, and despair of a life with sudden limitations-a life that was vastly different from the one they'd thought they'd have together-Toni had to learn how to be sick. In this book, Toni shares the practices she outlined to the reader in her bestselling classic How to Be Sick. Organized by challenge so that the reader can easily find a practice to address their situation and packaged in an easy-to-carry and easy-to-digest format, these are practices that have helped Toni live a life of equanimity, compassion, and joy, despite her many physical and energetic restrictions (and sometimes, because of them)"-- Provided by publisher.
