Lightening the Shadow: Diagnosing and Living with an Invisible Chronic Illness
Darla Nagel, author
A college student’s education turned into a crash course in investigating diagnoses and scaling back life plans after crushing exhaustion, cognitive difficulties, and other symptoms developed overnight. Numerous doctors and treatments failed, but she rebuilt her life and learned seven lessons that everyone with a chronic illness should know.
Reviews
Beth Koenigsknecht, MA, patient with Friedreich's ataxia

The line: “Stories of chronic illnesses don’t have endings involving cures or heartwarming reductions of limitations that fit into the myth that with willpower and hard work, anything is possible“ really strikes a purpose and is of course completely true at the same time.

Dorothy Wall, author, Encounters with the Invisible

With clarity and insight, Ms. Nagel provides a revelatory message about illness: Despite our cultural emphasis on vanquishing disease, many of us will need to learn to live with, rather than overcome, chronic illness. She is a knowledgeable guide with much to share, especially about the experiences of chronically ill young adults. Highly recommended for those who are ill, their family and friends, and health care providers.

Leonard A. Jason, PhD, Professor of Psychology, DePaul University

Darla’s story of her illness journey is filled with wisdom, practical advice, and a detailed illustration of what patients experience, particularly those who are young adults. I would recommend this book to anyone who has experienced this illness or who wants to know what it is like to deal with having this chronic condition.
