Next time I’m complaining that my Ehlers Danlos Syndrome has turned me into a useless blob, I’m going to remind myself that my fellow EDS-er, blogger and spoonie wrote a freakin’ book!
It’s not very long, in fact, it only took me an hour to read it on my Kindle app – which is good as an hour is just about the limit of my attention span these days. The Lion and the Peacock is a short book about Jennifer Peacock-Smith’s battle with anxiety. I believe that it was due to be a chapter within a larger book, but the decision was made to make it into a short publication in its own right. It works really well in this format.
I don’t suffer particularly from anxiety, but I care very much about a few people who do. This book explains in some relatable anecdotes just WHY anxiety behaves like it does. The author talks about how she conquered this illness and I can absolutely see why her approach would work for many people. If anxiety is a part of your life, it’s worth an hour of your life to read about Jennifer’s technique. It changed her life, it might change yours too.
I believe that in the coming days, this book will become FREE to download on Amazon for Kindle (or the app) for a very limited time. Please keep an eye on the link – or if you can, just buy it. Help a spoonie out! If you do read it, please leave a review. Reviews seem to be how books are sold these days.
Thanks for reading. Hopefully you all enjoy Jen’s book as much as I did.
