An Eighth Day View:
Studies show that people suffering from chronic illness fare better when they share experiences with people fighting the same disease. Judith Lynn Nichols found this to be true after she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1976. For 20 years she felt estranged from her family, her doctors, and her own body. Then, while researching MS on the Internet, she connected with a group of women fighting to live with MS. The group quickly became each woman's support network, and in daily emails they offered each other medical information as well as life-sustaining doses of humor, empathy, and compassion. Based on those Internet conversations, this book helps anyone fighting a chronic illness.
