Shirley Riga has taken a situation that is impossible to handle and made it possible to survive. Parents and caregivers of chronically-ill children are living at least two lives: their own plus handling everything for their child. This book provides tools Riga discovered living such a life. She shows how situations would spin out of control, and how she discovered tools to keep her sanity and own health. A remarkable achievement. Well worth reading if you are a parent or caregiver to a chronically-ill child.
