A Time to Live: Living with A Life-Threatening Illness



“A Time To Live” is literature for the newly diagnosed with a poor prognosis and/or the palliative care patient; for anyone faced with the unpredictability of their future due to living with a life threatening illness. It offers guidance for living and explains comfort control, nutrition, sleep, pain medications, overdosing and addiction possibilities as they relate to a serious illnesses as well as the fear of death that we all bring to this final experience.
When a person receives the diagnosis of a life-threatening illness, life as they know it ceases. They find themselves in uncharted territory with no script to follow. Too often they withdraw from the world, as if they have already died. All activity becomes centered on their living with disease and its treatment. Fear and uncertainty replaces confidence and self identity. The joys of living are more or less put on hold while living as long as possible is pursued.
A Time to Live honors whatever life prolonging choices are being made while at the same time suggesting we look at the gifts life offers each day.
“Living: What does that word really mean? Everyone has a different answer. Start with the idea that you are alive right now. If you are reading this booklet and have  a life threatening illness then you will be alive next week and probably next month. So, what do you want to do or say? What is keeping you from doing or saying it? How can those obstacles be overcome?” From A Time To Live: Living With a Life-Threatening Illness.
“A Time To Live” is written in the same short, direct yet gentle manner as the companion booklets, "Gone From My Sight," "The Eleventh hour," and "My Friend, I Care."

Thank you for writing a book that makes a most difficult subject matter easier to read. I especially appreciated your real life examples and the recipe at the end.
