Lightening the Shadow COVID-19 long haulers, you need to read this book!
Imagine that just as your adult life is starting, what starts as a cold leads to inability to concentrate, digestive problems, and muscle twitches. You feel like you're fifty years older and unplugged in crushing darkness. How do you rebuild your life and remain useful to others?
Lightening the Shadow: Diagnosing and Learning to Live with an Invisible Chronic Illness is my memoir. By sharing my experiences and lessons learned, I mean to shine a light for my fellow patients and people without diagnoses and to enlighten healthy people, especially doctors, about my particular illness.
