Sneak peek #1

“The authors provide us with a tidbit a day to not only balance life and chronic illness, but to also maximize the potential of each day. Use the book as designed, allowing the daily entries to take you to unexpected places and knowledge. But keep your marker or your sticky notes handy so that you can easily return to the contributions that particularly inspire you and give you strength to live each day in the positive.”
~ Patricia Geraghty, RNC, MSN, FNP-BC, Sharecare Editorial Advisory Board.     Read more here

Celeste Cooper and Jeff Miller have provided an arsenal to fight this dragon that threatens energy, growth, and healing.  By focusing on each summer day, the authors send their readers on a personal journey of mindfulness and self awareness, allowing the reader to restructure personal experience on how pain is perceived.

Day Twenty
"The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials."   
 ~Chinese Proverb

The most insidious effects of pain are the erosion and corruption of our sense of self identity.  Who we were and who we are become two different individuals.  The dreams and plans associated with the first self change, fade, warp and evaporate in the harsh light that pain brings.  Our self-narrative undergoes a metamorphosis we could not have predicted. It is not wholly negative although it appears so at first.  It was not totally unexpected; it has arrived decades earlier than expected. It brings companions, wisdom and a heightened appreciation for many facets of life.  Our narrative changes, it does not end.

Dr. Jeff Miller is a counseling psychologist in private practice.  Among other interests, Jeff values working with patients with chronic pain and illness.
