Having a chronic illness like rheumatoid arthritis (RA), as I do, adds a unique challenge and perspective to your life. Adapting to this and finding a way to live your life to the fullest requires support and information from many different places. Some of the best resources are books written by others who live with RA and other chronic illnesses. These authors provide information and inspiration that we can use to help with our own journey, no matter the condition we live with. Even better, they make us feel part of a community — rejoicing in the “me too” moments and sharing both tears and laughter. Here are some of the best chronic illness books to help you get started.
