About the Author
Jenni Grover is founder of ChronicBabe.com, where she draws on her experience with fibromyalgia and a handful of other conditions to teach women how to craft incredible lives beyond illness. Since 2005, Jenni has helped countless women through her website, magazine articles, videos, and speeches around the world. For more than twenty-five years, Jenni has consulted with hundreds of organizations worldwide, helping them craft and share their messages. She focuses on working with health care organizations—sharing stories of strength, wellness, and inspiration in the face of adversity. Jenni was raised in Texas, but she calls Chicago home. She lives there with her husband, Joe, along with an army of house plants. When she’s not writing, she’s in the garden, sewing a quilt, dancing to techno music in her living room, or watching sci-fi. She’s never met a taco she didn’t like.

The lessons Jenni packs into this book are the crucial ones every Chronic Babe must learn: how to communicate, how to adapt your career, acceptance, changing your thinking and your habits, building a team, and so on. These are all things I write about in Take Back Your Life: Find Hope And Freedom From Fibromyalgia Symptoms And Pain and The Fibromyalgia Coach: Feel Better, Change Lives, and Find Your Best Job Ever. It's what I coach my clients on and teach my students. I'm thrilled Jenni is writing about them too, since we can never hear this too much. Different perspectives help us all learn better. I love Jenni's style; she speaks to me! I also love that Jenni has included so much of the caregiver's perspective in her book, since we never live our illnesses in a vacuum.
I absolutely recommend this book to both the newly diagnosed and the veteran, the young babes and the more mature ones, the patient and those who love them. There are gems of wisdom in this book that will benefit us all.
When you have chronic illness and pain, there are times when you're not the sharpest knife in the drawer. So the writing style, so clear and stripped of excess verbiage, means you don't have to struggle to comprehend and remember it even on a bad day. The advice just slips easily into your brain and stays there.
Chronic Babe 101 is a guide for living well with chronic illness and pain, so it covers a lot more than how to adapt to physical limitations. I could hand this book to a friend who doesn't have chronic physical problems and they would find it almost as useful as I do. Sections on changing bad habits, coping with adversity, minimizing mental suffering, family and romantic relationships, building a support network and tips for successful negotiations are useful for everyone.
Every reviewer here has had nothing but good to say about this book. They are right.
