Abstract:

"When Nick Duerden became ill with an all-too-common, if routinely misunderstood, viral condition, his doctor didn't know what to suggest. And so he was forced to plunge into the often bewildering, but increasingly blossoming, world of alternative therapy in pursuit of a cure.

Get Well Soon is a memoir that focuses on the journey all of us at some point will have to make: the abrupt obligation to start living better, wiser, healthier, and to be kinder to our minds and bodies. Honest, funny and ultimately optimistic, it's also about successfully negotiating long-term illness while still leading a hectic modern life, because hectic modern lives rarely pause for breath. But we can"--Back cover.
