While serious illness, injury, or disability can physically alter the course of your life, it can also cause great emotional upheaval. It is not uncommon to feel anger, frustration, grief, fear, and denial as you try to accept a new way of living. As you lose ability to do things you once considered routine, you may even feel that you are losing your self-worth, that your physical condition is threatening your identity.
In this remarkable and uplifting book, Linda Noble Topf, who has lived with multiple sclerosis for most of her adult life, delves deeply into her own experience to share with you the keys to regaining emotional and spiritual wholeness. Through a step-by-step process designed to show that real healing has little to do with the state of the physical body, Noble Topf offers a compassionate and inspirational message to anyone whose sense of self is threatened by physical limitations. You Are Not Your Illness offers support, skills, and encouragement to those who want to embrace the challenge of living successfully with illness.
