Item Description...
In September 2003, Wanda Scott Bledsoe's husband returned from a church work trip to Mexico with an unexplained weakness that grew worse over the next nine months. In this powerful true story the author interviews her husband as they journey together through his illness. In each chapter she offers her experiences in caring for her husband and his responses to his illness and her care. Each chapter of the book is introduced by Scripture and focuses on the author's upbeat but realistic sharing of the challenges of a caregiver and care receiver and the faithful ways they met those challenges. Caregiver tips as well as journaling starters are included in each chapter. In addition to serving the needs of caregivers and care receivers, this is a helpful gift for use by counselors and pastors.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Loved hearing both husband and wife's side of the story  Dec 14, 2006
Despite the topic of illness, there was nothing sad about this book. I felt like I was reading Milt and Wanda's personal journals, sharing their concerns and fears, but also laughing out loud as they find the humor in any situation because love abounds. I will be enthusiastically recommending this book for many years.
Excellent resource!  Oct 19, 2006
This is an amazing "twelve-step" program for people who are taking care of a relative or friend. I've been a caregiver for my injured husband, albeit for only a month, but I really related to this book.

Husband and wife Milt and Wanda Bledsoe are active in their church and strong in their faith in God. Going full speed ahead in life, all changed when Milt becomes ill. It was some time before he was diagnosed with Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP), a rare disease that effects one person in 100,000. Full recovery is possible and today Milt has regained many abilities.

In the 12 steps, Wanda and Milt tell stories that revolve around that specific step, and the chapter ends with tips from both of them--showing the side of the caregiver and the care receiver--as each has a specific role and of course, viewpoint.

The chapter titles really say it all, and the chapter ends with journal pages with related questions.

1 Tell your story
2 Face your fears and then take action
3 Choose great role models
4 Acknowledge the psychological impact and keep a positive attitude
5 Pace yourself
6 Develop a good support system
7 Call for help and care for those who provide it
8 Take time for yourself
9 Offer help, but not too much
10 Deal with your anger
11 Let go of your guilt
12 Affirm yourself and count your blessings

This book deals honestly with how to cope with illness and how it affects each of the couple. "Why me?" is a common question, most often asked of God by both the ill person and the caregiver who is living two lives: theirs and the ill spouse, parent or child.

The well person can get run ragged and just be glad they made it through the day. It's important that the caregiver takes care of her/himself, has a good support system and someone to talk/vent to. Each helping person brings something different to the "helping." Appreciate them.

Armchair Interviews says: Walking Together Through Illness is an excellent resource written by people living with illness that will benefit anyone who is a caregiver or a care receiver.

An excellent resource for care givers  Sep 26, 2006
This is an honest and heartfelt story of two people who are learning to live with the profound changes that dealing with serious illness brings. By reading their individual stories, you see and appreciate how differently the care giver and care receiver perceive and react to the illness and its effects. If you are a care giver at home, at work, or as a volunteer, this book will help you understand your care receiver and his or her needs.
