When a person has such a sudden life-changing experience, a lot of emotions come to the fore. The first emotion was shock, followed by confusion and anger. Whom was I angry with? Let's face it, no one ever imagines himself/herself suffering from an incurable disease. When Beki P Langa was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001, she made the extraordinary decision to keep her illness a secret. In Living and Working with Cancer she talks of her need to remain strong for her two children and demonstrates her determination to survive. Armed with her Catholic faith and an optimistic attitude, she teaches us that we have the strength to overcome the setbacks we face in life. Beki P Langa is the youngest of three siblings. She has a sister, Marjorie, and a brother, Phillip, who passed away in 1997. To her, life is a song worth singing. Her favourite song is 'We have Overcome'. The aim of this book is to give 'hope' to cancer sufferers, their loved ones and carers.

Shaking Hands with Death Corgi Books

Why we all deserve a life worth living and a death worth dying for. 'Most men don't fear death. They fear those things - the knife, the shipwreck, the illness, the bomb - which precede, by microseconds if you're lucky, and many years if you're not, the moment of death.' When Terry Pratchett was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in his fifties he was angry - not with death but with the disease that would take him there, and with the suffering disease can cause when we are not allowed to put an end to it. In this essay, broadcast to millions as the BBC Richard Dimblebly Lecture 2010, he argues for our right to choose - our right to a good life, and a good death too.

"What is it like to try to heal the body when the mind is under attack? In this gripping and illuminating book, Dr Allan Ropper reveals the extraordinary stories behind some of the life-altering afflictions that he and his staff are confronted with at the Neurology Unit of Harvard's Brigham and Women's Hospital. Neurologists diagnose and treat serious illnesses of the brain by combining the hard science of medical knowledge with the art of intuitive reasoning. The unique challenge they face is that their primary sources of information - the patients' brains - are quite often altered, sometimes bizarrely, as a result of disease. Like Alice in Wonderland, Dr Ropper inhabits a place where absurdities abound: a sportsman who starts spouting gibberish; an undergraduate who suddenly becomes psychotic; a salesman who drives around and around a roundabout, unable to get off; a mother who has to decide whether a life locked inside her own head is worth living. How does one begin to treat such cases, to counsel people whose lives may be changed forever? How does one train the next generation of clinicians to deal with the moral and medical aspects of brain disease? Dr Ropper answers these questions by taking the reader into a world where lives and minds hang in the balance."

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Christianity & Culture Haworth Press

Medycyna > English Division

Share the Biblical view of the value of human life! This fascinating first-person account offers an insider's view of what it means to suddenly move from being a healthy, productive member of society to being severely limited. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Christianity, and Culture: Between God and an Illness tells the story of the author and his wife, who were both struck down with CFIDS in the midst of their busy lives of service. Because Dr. Rotholz is also a trained anthropologist, he can bring a scholarly perspective to understanding the social, emotional, and cultural impact of this devastating illness. His devout Christianity gives a Biblical context to this discussion. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Christianity, and Culture: Between God and an Illness analyzes the secular cultural values that make disability seem like shame. Because our culture exalts worldly status and financial success, many CFIDS sufferers find themselves facing a deep sense of humiliation, worthlessness, and failure when their disease puts their lives on hold. Dr. Rotholz offers a Biblical perspective of human beings as the image-bearers of God. This alternative vision of values is exemplified in the culture of the Bushmen of the Kalahari in Africa, the Bruderhof Christian community in the USA, and the life of a Black woman from the American south. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Christianity, and Culture: Between God and an Illness presents a powerfully reasoned, deeply felt analysis of the tug of war between our culture and Biblical standards, including: achievement, status, power, and wealth as the elements of our culture of success the anxiety that lies behind the stress of economic productivity the economic factors that influence our cultural bias against the disabled the Biblical meaning of suffering faithfulness as the Biblical measure of success in life The power of this extraordinary book goes well beyond the CFIDS community and even the community of the disabled. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Christianity, and Culture: Between God and an Illness offers a new and meaningful vision of what makes life worth living for anyone, well or ill, young or old. Scholars and practitioners in anthropology, medical sociology, social work, the health professions, pastoral care, and theology will find it a powerful aid to understanding the world of the disabled and treating others with respect. The disabled and those who care for them will call it a blessing.
