discussion here. It's really a different perspective on dealing with illness
and it's in a fresh book by Greg Pacini, Journey Beyond Diagnosis.
The simplicity of language, without talking down to people, is just really,
really fascinating and it makes it worth picking up. Wonderful book."

"This invaluable source to patients, caregivers,
and medical professionals explores the illness experience, likening it to a
journey. The author not only outlines how to prepare for the journey, but he
also discusses how to deal with adversity along the road. Eleven “Rest
Stops”—step-by-step techniques for making the journey more comfortable—are
interspersed throughout the narrative. These “Rest Stops” include
strategies for responding to relationship tension, sleep problems, and depression.
With a foreword by Peter D. Weiss, MD, who describes this book as 'a sensitive
and clear map to the emotional landscape that accompanies the diagnosis and
treatment of cancer' and other diseases, this book will give readers “a
map to integrate healing, truth in relationships, and growth as human beings.”
