Books About Being Sick
I'm looking to read some books–non-fiction but fiction welcome too–about being seriously ill. I'm not too interested in standard narratives: I got very ill, was rescued by (sometimes horrible) treatments, and lived to tell the tale. I'm looking for well written explorations that include relationships, spirituality, life itself, even adventure. I'd love to know more about–how to be sick, how to be chronically ill, how to manage, how to die, how to understand ourselves. Suggestions very welcome. Thank you in advance.
