Crying Wolf
By S. Marian (c) 2012
We're all taught that crying wolf is a bad thing, the story of the little boy serves as an example. The tale tells us that if we do it too often - no one will listen. What do we do when we cry wolf, but no one sees or hears? We didn't cry too often, they just don't want to understand or listen anymore. Every person with lupus or other chronic diseases knows this feeling. They live with the wolf, a disease that would steal their vitality and the hope

Meet the Author

I'm a single mom fighting many chronic illnesses. I've been in love with the written word ever since I wrote a teacher a poem in preschool.

I've published poetry, written three screenplays, and penned two television series.

A dark room, a computer, and green tea is all I need in this world. I hope you enjoy my written words.

    I purchased this book for a friend and then decided to purchase

    I purchased this book for a friend and then decided to purchase a copy for myself since my friend couldn't stop raving about it. I'm sorry I did that but I'm glad that this book is apart of my collection. Even if you don't have a chronic illness, this book is a great insight into the life of a person with chronic illness. You don't have to have lupus to enjoy this story. I certainly don't but I feel for the thousands of those that do. Job well done.

    Every Rheumatologist Needs to Read This Book

    I have lupus and someone recommended this book to me after I was diagnosed. I love this book and have asked my family and friends to read it so that they know what I'm going through. You don't have to have lupus for this book to resonate with you. Insert any chronic illness and this book will speak to you.

    Honestly, no chronic illness is necessary. The book is a great read for someone that just wants to know what it is like to be chronically ill. It reads like a good story with excellent writing. I highly commend this book for anyone. It's changed my life.
