Praise for Chronic Resilience

“Danea Horn has put an honest and wise voice to the intimate journey of illness. She lights a fire for self-compassion and puts stress in its place, while providing empowering suggestions for living with grace and Chronic Resilience. I highly recommend this groundbreaking book.” –Kris Carr, New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Sexy Diet

Ms. Horn not only shares her personal experiences working with these practical tools (which feels like chatting with an old friend), but also includes intimate conversations with nine other women who suffer from chronic illness. This book will help you transform the stress of chronic illness into a life of acceptance, purpose, and gratitude. It’s a gem.” –Toni Bernhard, author of How to be Sick: A Buddhist-Inspired Guide for the Chronically Ill and their Caregivers

Chronic Resilience“Danea provides an invaluable perspective on how to be resilient when battling a chronic illness. A must read to help you navigate the emotions successfully.” –Lori Hartwell, author of Chronically Happy: Joyful Living in Spite of a Chronic Illness

“I love this book. It is funny, touching, and true. Chronic Resilience is a best friend for anyone impacted by chronic illness. Intimate and authentic, tender and wise, Danea offers everyone the benefit of her courageous triumph…a life well lived…debilitating diseases be danged!” –Penelope Young Andrade, LCSW, author of Emotional Medicine Rx: Cry When You’re Sad, Stop When You’re Done, Feel Good Fast

“As I was reading the book, I nodded in recognition to many of the points Danea brings up. It prompted me to take a closer look at how I deal with stress and I’m already implementing some of her excellent tips. This book is a must-have for women living with a chronic illness. It would also make a great gift for anyone who’s struggling with managing stress, whether they have a chronic illness or not.” -Lene Andersen, Health Central: Rheumatoid Arthritis Blogger

“Danea’s story is especially inspiring.” -Lori Newman, Health Bistro at Lifescript

“Each chapter is an exploration of their individual stories and coping mechanisms, including awesomely practical advice like “Let yourself be pissed!” It’s at turns funny and touching and inspiring. Chronic Resilience is a must-read for anyone living with an illness, as well as those who have a friend or family member who is ill. But even if you’re not sick, the book is an amazing lesson in adversity and how to live your life in spite of it.” –Jamie Roman, Girls on the Grid

“Chronic Resilience” is the first book I’ve read that highlights and teaches the reader to embrace the strength gained when going through a traumatic event, and continue to apply it to living with a chronic illness.” –Lori Schneider, Misdiagnosed Me Blogger

“For public health clinicians, practitioners, and researchers who work in the chronic illness arena:  I think you will get a unique first-hand view into (1) the mental, physical, and emotional challenges that affect this population, (2) the incredible resilience that those with chronic illness show on a day-to-day basis (what can we learn from them??), and (3) specific strategies that can be employed to support patients with chronic illness.”  –Leah Roman, Pop Health Blogger

“Just today I listened to a woman in the examining room whose fear, anxiety, and sense of isolation with her medical problems were as distressing as the many unpleasant feelings of pain, dizziness, and dread. I did my best to listen to her, validate her concerns, and offer her constructive medical solutions – but I found myself also mentioning Ms. Horn’s book. Even in the first few pages of her disarming introduction, in which she describes her own congenital problems, you can sense her warmth and sincerity, and the toughness that she might lend to a besieged fellow patient and life traveler.” –Dr. Charles, The Examining Room of Dr. Charles Blogger

“I can say this book was part of an inspiration for this blog. I’d be wanting to start a new blog for awhile but she helped me get motivated. Her ideas helped me feel less overwhelmed by life, because by outlining what’s really important, you make more time, even if most of your day is feeling like crap.” –Lymie Eating Coconut Blogger

“The book is brave and incredibly honest.  She holds absolutely nothing back.” –James Ham, Cowbell Kingdom

    Loved your book. I admire your tenacity and your ability to face down the demons in your life.
    Your body may not be doing what most healthy folks are taken for granted but in my book you are blessed with a very healthy mind. Way to go girl!
