How to Remain Fully Alive with a Life-Limiting Illness
by Judy Flickinger
Death...takes only a moment; you breathe out and you don't breathe in—that is death. On the other hand, dying can take a very long time, and depending on how you approach it, it can be either a miserable, sometimes terror-filled experience or an enlightening adventure.
In Spirit Matters: How to Remain Fully Alive with a Life-Limiting Illness, Judy Flickinger offers a seldom-considered but all-important perspective on what really matters at the end of life. As retired hospice nurse turned author, Judy focuses on the importance of keeping the spirit—the person inside the dying body—alive and well during the course of a life-limiting illness. Spirit Matters exposes the motives, misconceptions, and lack of knowledge that often prevent dying people from receiving the type of care that can create and maintain a healthy spirit. The message in Spirit Matters is conveyed in eleven lessons illuminated by the personal stories of dying people and their families.
Readers will learn, laugh, cry, and hopefully realize that near the end of life, first and foremost, Spirit Matters.
