More About This Book

Overview

You may not think anything about IBD or IBS is funny, until you read Elizabeth Roberts' account of her emotional roller-coaster ride as she learned to live successfully with these illnesses. After spending most of her honeymoon on St. Bart's in the bathroom, Roberts returned home determined to find out what had happened to her dream life. After months of tests, her doctors told her she had IBD and IBS and had to learn to live with these debilitating diseases.

But no one told her how! After she hit bottom, physically and emotionally, Roberts decided that to get her life back she would have to find the way herself. This book recounts her journey-sometimes painfully, sometimes humorously-through the process of learning to live successfully with IBD and IBS.

Follow Roberts on her journey as she learns to understand the needs of her body; participates in special diets; engages in support groups; and integrates Reiki, yoga, meditation, and exercise into her daily routine of success. If you, a family member, a lover, or a friend have been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease or Irritable Bowel Syndrome, this book is a must read. You too can start to live again!

    A gripping emotional roller-coaster ride

    Elizabeth Roberts¿ skill as a journalist and public relations writer are matched perfectly with this personal emotional story of Elizabeth initially being diagnosed with IBD and then IBS followed by her own techniques for coping. I was mesmerized by her story because Elizabeth eloquently describes how a strong healthy career woman suddenly learns and then understands what it is like to have to cope with these troubling chronic conditions. Her style is approachable as if she is talking directly to you. She shares with us her fears and her triumphs. Doing so provides an honest account of how one¿s quality of life is altered. Elizabeth provides helpful Tips and Information at the end of each chapter which do a nice job at capturing the key messages of each chapter. I highly recommend this book.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who is dealing with IBD or IBS. Elizabeth writes about her journey with IBD. Her struggles, accomplishments and how she has come to manage her IBD. It gave me hope in my struggle with IBS. There is a lot of information in the book, she provides tips and info at the end of each chapter.
