This course-in-a-book contains ten lessons in essential areas that women with chronic illness need to address in order to craft a life beyond chronic illness - to become more than professional patients. Through personal stories, expert interviews, encouraging exercises, and hundreds of resources, author Jenni Grover teaches sick chicks how to become total babes!
