I joined this group and sight as I was looking for friends who can understand what I'm feeling and to share my experience. I'm somewhat disapointed in that the group seems pretty stagnant with little discussion going on. In an attempt to change that I am going to do my best to add relevant topics. My first is this: I just read a book called "Strong in All the Broken Places" voices of illness, chorus of hope by Richard M. Cohen. I found it extremely insightful and saw myself in many places in the book. Mr Cohen has suffered through two boughts of colon cancer and has MS. He previously wrote a book about that called "Blindsided. Strong in all the Broken Places is about 5 people and thier families who suffer from 5 different life changing/threatning diseases. He spent time with them over the course of a couple of years. I recommend this book to anyone on this sight and thier families and friends. Do you have any books that you have read that may be of help to others.
