Heroic Struggle

Coping with Chronic Illnesses: Personal Eczema Experiences

by Christine Matama

Heroic Struggle: Coping with Chronic Illnesses guides a reader into living with a life-long disorder or disease. This is inspired by the personal experiences of the writer, who has beaten the odds, suffering from eczema for 14 years. It opens with a real-life situation and offers tips and insights for sufferers of chronic illness, victims, carers, families, friends, medical practitioners and institutions. It provides tangible approaches and coping mechanisms which different actors may and should adapt in such an adverse situation. Coping with chronic illnesses is not only a daunting task but rather an endeavour worth the label of a heroic struggle.
