I want to share a health related book review with you written by my Chronic Illness Blogger friend Lydia over on her blog Being Lydia
“I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. “
“The Memory of Health” by Edie Summers is a very interesting book. I think she had me from the start of the forward with “Dear Friend”. Why? Because I instantly felt this person wants to meet me where I am.
The 470-page book takes on many forms:
It contains excerpts from the author’s journal citing how her health is from day to day, etc.
The author has included some of her own poetry which gives a glimpse into how her illness comes out in her creativity.
There is some medical terminology to give substance and credibility.
And there is “the story”. All through the book, Edie talks about how we need to find and tell our story to truly heal ourselves. Her own story weaves in and out through each page, section, and chapter.
