Summary

You Don’t Look Sick chronicles a patient's true-life stories and her physicians compassionate commentary as they take a journey through the four stages of chronic illness—Getting Sick, Being Sick, Grief and Acceptance and Living Well. The authors address such practical aspects as hiring a doctor, managing chronic pain, coping with grief and loss of function, winning battles with health and disability insurers, countering the social bias against the chronically ill, and recognizing the limitations of chronic illness care and charting a path for change and more. This warmhearted resource helps you focus on building a meaningful life that contains an illness as opposed to a life of frustration and fear. The authors have thoroughly revised and updated the second edition based upon feedback from the audience for the first edition. They have added a new section on Grief and Acceptance, updated all the chapters making them more specific, address the passage of the Affordable Health Care Act and Dr. Overman has added practical travel tips that bring organization and focus to each phase of the journey. Designed for patients at all stages of the chronic illness journey, this book is also illuminating for caregivers and loved ones.
