Chronic Christmas: Surviving the Holidays with a Chronic Illness

When you think of Christmas, are you filled with a sense of joy and excitement or overwhelm and dread? Chances are you experience a little bit of both. The holidays tend to be stressful for everyone, but they can be particularly challenging for those of us who have a chronic illness.

Lene Andersen has come to our rescue with her new book, Chronic Christmas: Surviving the Holidays with a Chronic Illness. She describes her book as “an Advent calendar full of self-care tips to help people with chronic illness savor the holiday season as never before.”

Not only does Chronic Christmas provide those of us who live with a chronic illness with wise and useful tips on how we can survive and even enjoy the holidays, it also offers truly helpful suggestions for family and friends who have a loved one with a chronic illness.

In the tradition of Advent calendars, the book contains an entry for every day leading up to Christmas. Each chapter begins with a section for the person with a chronic illness and suggests something you can do to help yourself enjoy the holidays more. This is followed by a brief section that addresses loved ones and shares an idea for how they can help make the holidays a little easier for you. As an added bonus, you'll find a few surprises sprinkled throughout the book! In keeping with the goal of making the holidays easier, each day's entry can be read in just a few minutes.
