3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. B. M. Cuff on 4 Jun 2006
Format: Paperback
After living for many years with M.E. I found I often 'clicked' with subjects covered in the book, yet still found plenty of new ideas. Some of these I've already found useful.

I found the book sensitively written. The authors clearly understand the problems of coping with long-term illness and the writing style is encouraging and supportive. I liked the way that subjects were covered with enough detail without getting long-winded. Really easy to read.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Susie Capon on 6 May 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is necessary reading for anyone diagnosed with chronic illness and their family / carers. It gives the reader honest personal accounts of the problems encountered when living with chronic illness as well as sensible, structured strategies to help all those involved maintain a healthy approach to their lives. The chapter on the relationship between the patient and their doctor is particularly insightful.The co-writers offer the reader comprhensive discussion and advice from both the personal and medical angle increasing the knowledge and understanding of the demands chronic illness places on the individual and all those involved in their care. An excellent and long awaited "toolkit"

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By jhoward on 8 Jun 2006
Format: Paperback
"As someone who has lived with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME for over 15 years, I found Frankie Campling and Michael Sharpes's book 'Living with a long term illness: the facts' both informative and practical. However their greatest achievement is that I found it comforting - like having a sensible and kind friend to provide reassurance and support.
