I am delighted to announce the publication of my new book, Aches, Pains, and Love: A Guide to Dating and Relationships for Those With Chronic Pain and Illness. And just in time for Valentine’s Day!
This book is for people living with chronic pain or illness, or both. And it’s especially for those who have given up on having an intimate, romantic relationship. Living with these conditions can feel overwhelming, never mind adding intimacy into the mix. Surprisingly, very little has been published on dating and relationships for people with chronic pain and illness. Aches, Pains, and Love addresses that need with a little wisdom, lots of compassion, and pinch humour for good measure.
This book is about hope. It is possible to have lasting love and companionship in an intimate relationship when you live with chronic pain and illness. In Aches, Pains, and Love, I provide a step-by-step guide to getting the love you want, regardless of your physical condition. I offer a variety of real-life anecdotes (from my bank of stories about my adventures in dating), practical observations, and specific tools that will help you decide what you really desire in a loving relationship and guide you towards achieving that happiness.
In a nutshell, if you’re living with chronic pain and illness and you’ve given up on relationships, struggling to meet someone or having difficulties with the relationship you do have, this book with help you navigate to calmer waters, showing you how to create the necessary foundation and teaching you the skills you need in order to have a successful relationship. It is possible.
Aches, Pains, and Love is available in paperback and ebook on Amazon.com and Amazon.eu and well as ebook on Kobo, and Amazon.ca. The paperback will be available on Amazon in Canada very soon, and the ebook on various other sites. I will keep you posted!
