The struggle to maintain joy & a fulfilling relationship while coping with chronic illness and pain is a serious problem for millions of people today. Australian entrepreneur and health professional Karra Eloff draws on academic research and her own pursuit of joy in spite of suffering to bring this trailblazing, compassionate, low-energy and practical path to a remarkable new normal, for you and your chosen human/partner.
On average, one in five adults suffer from chronic pain. In older people, the number rises to three in five. Most of these people don't realise they don't have to settle for a survival-based coexistence with their partner or bury their hopes for success and joy under a mountain of heat packs or duvets.
Chronic illness or pain, according to Karra, need not hold you back from experiencing personal joy and success. It is possible to forge a path to remarkable-to move the dial of a relationship challenged with chronic pain from embattled and exhausted to joyful and passion-filled.
This is possible through small, practical changes that require little energy but make a big impact in the areas of:
* Communication * Mental health * Intimacy * Personal Success
