One of the most important issues for any of us facing chronic illness is the issue of staying employed, or how to support ourselves while managing our illness. It is an issue we will be exploring at greater length in the coming months here at Free my Brain as we look at the merits and drawbacks of keeping a job, finding home-based employment, starting a business, or not working at all, when managing life with Migraine disease. Rosalind Joffe, Chronic Illness Coach, specializes in helping women with autoimmune diseases keep on working!
I’m participating in Rosalind's Virtual Book Tour, along with other chronic illness bloggers, to bring attention to this important new book: Women, Work and Autoimmune Disease: Keep Working, Girlfriend! From Nov. 3 - Nov. 21, the other bloggers and I will be reviewing the book, interviewing the author, hosting guest posts, and bringing attention to this important issue. Rosalind will be writing a guest post here on Free my Brain on Tuesday, November 18. First stop on the tour will be at Rhymes with Migraine on November 3rd. In the meantime, please visit Keep Working Girlfriend for a list of the other bloggers/stops on the tour. You can also check out the book itself, which is described as a "voice of warmth, wisdom, understanding, and sisterhood," encouraging "women with chronic illness to stay as successfully employed as possible." Click on the image of the book at the right to read more about it or purchase through Amazon.com.
Takes a licking but keeps on working!
