How to Be Sick: A Buddist-Inspired Guide for the Chronically Ill and their Caregivers is by Toni Bernhard, who has a chronic illness.
From the author:
How To Be Sick: A Buddhist-Inspired Guide for the Chronically Ill and Their Caregivers is about living skillfully with the challenges of any chronic illness or condition. I wrote it for sufferers and for their caregivers (the latter includes people involved in hospice, chaplaincy, and elder care; for those interested in chronic illnesses and conditions (health professionals, family and friends); and for people interested in Buddhism (illness can function as a metaphor for suffering which, along with the cessation of suffering, is at the heart of the Buddha’s teaching).
