In sickness and in health

My friend Dave sent me notice of a new blog, called In Sickness and In Health, "a place for couples going though an illness experience - to share stories, advice, resources, and to learn from each other." It's by Barbara Kivowitz. Dave says, "She writes well, has a lot to talk about, and ought to attract an audience, I think." Let's help her along.

I am glad to see your mention of the new blog, "In Sickness and in Health" by Barbara Kivowitz. I interviewed Barbara for a book that I wrote about integrative medicine (combining alternative & conventional medicine) to overcome serious health problems. When she was faced with a frightening and debilitating pain condition that mystified her doctors, Barbara embarked on a courageous and imaginative journey to understand the meaning of the pain in her life and to explore creative treatment options. Her story of recovery is inspirational, and so is her deep empathy for the suffering of others.

Thank you, Paul and Dave and Roanne for your support. I feel very lucky to have mostly recovered from my chronic pain condition, and this blog is a way of giving back.
