Über diesen Titel


Over 90 million Americans live with chronic illness. Author Elizabeth Flora, a Fibromyalgia patient, shares a candid, emotional account of life with chronic illness. Living well, she asserts, comes from learning to change our perspective. We tend to view pain as the enemy. We draw lines in the sand and prepare ourselves for battle. But expending energy in such a negative way serves no purpose. It is not the answer. She recommends that each patient learn to build a relationship with pain. Only when you begin to view pain as friend rather than foe that you can learn to live with it. This is the goal: to live well with pain, rather than in spite of it.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Flora Ross was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) in February 1998. She was discouraged at that time to find that there was little information available on the condition, and very few books on chronic illness written from the patient's point of view. So she decided to write one herself. MAKING FRIENDS WITH PAIN was her first book. Elizabeth grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and graduated from John Burroughs School. She holds a B.A. in Literature and Language from Webster University. After more than 15 years working as a marketing professional for several Fortune 500 companies, Elizabeth resigned in 2009 to care for her daughter. She is currently working on her second book, exploring her journey from proud, determined feminist to happy, content stay at home mom. In the 12 years since she was diagnosed with FMS, Elizabeth has been able to successfully manage her condition without medication, and spends most of her days pain free. She currently resides in Jacksonville, Florida with her husband and young daughter.
