Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder, meaning that the body mistakenly attacks itself. Interestingly, there are over 80 autoimmune diseases and unfortunately, for a reason science cannot readily explain, women are at more risk of having these disorders.
Are you a woman that struggles to keep it all together while coping with celiac disease and/or related health issues while maintaining a career?
What is your biggest obstacle? What related autoimmune disease or chronic illness situation are you dealing with? What words of living wisdom do you have to share?
Most of us have read about how celiac disease may be found in combination with other autoimmune diseases, but I'd like to hear from those of you that are living it.
Women, Work, and Autoimmune Disease: Keep Working, Girlfriend! is a new book that encourages women with chronic illness to stay as successfully employed as possible so they can preserve their independence and sense of self. Rich with information and inspiration, it is the voice of warmth, wisdom, understanding and sisterhood. This book encourages you to keep going, in spite of the hurdles.
The authors, Rosalind Joffe and Joan Friedlander, would like to randomly give away one copy of their inspirational new book to one of our readers. The winner will be chosen from the comments section.
Thank you for sharing, us chicks need to stick together!
