Other People's Blogs and Books on Living With Chronic Illness, Depression and Meditation

This evening, I am on the lookout for encouragement and inspiration from other chronic illness patients. I've found some good blogs.


This post gave me a great deal of comic relief. http://letsfeelbetter.com/list-of-responses-to-you-dont-really-need-that-handicap-sticker/

This is pretty funny too, but it will resonate with anyone who has chronic illness and dysautonomia.



The American Chronic Pain Association--Helpful Reading.

The Mighty is a great website in general where people submit their stories and posts on living with chronic illnesses of all sorts. But I also found a list of good books there.

GoodReads is a good place to get lost in. https://www.goodreads.com/shelf/show/chronic-illness

I haven't done any meditation or self-hypnosis for years, but I know it helps and I am going to get back into it. If you are interested in trying it, here are some helpful links.


UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center Guided Meditation

Self-hypnosis works similarly to the relaxation techniques used in Lamaze classes for pregnant women. This place has pictures and instructions on how to do it. It's really a no brainer.  http://www.wikihow.com/Perform-Self-Hypnosis
