More About the Author
Barby's books are for all of those suffering from chronic pain as well as their family, caregivers, healthcare professionals and public. Until you feel the pain, it is difficult to understand the challenges it brings on even after remission is successfully reached. Her books put this into great perspective with easy to follow and understand information. Whether a person is dealing with physical or mental pain, it can and will consume you if you allow it to. Only the patient can begin the process of healing, and Barby's hope is that these books will inspire the patient's eventual transformation filled with HOPE. Healing starts from within and it is "Yours If You Choose To Accept It".
Barby Ingle has been battling a Neurological condition, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, for almost 9 years. Barby underwent IV-Infusion therapy and is now out of the severe burning pain that took over her life as well as the other autonomic symptoms that come with RSD. This process tested Barby to her limits. Through this life experience, she realized her limits are past the bounds she had on herself. Barby did not give up or give in! Barby had to become the Chief of Staff of Her Own Medical Team and is now in remission. If Barby can do it, anyone can.
