Women, Work, and Autoimmune Disease: Keep Working, Girlfriend!

by Rosalind Joffe and Joan Friedlander
I got this book through the LibraryThing early reviewer program.
This is a must-read for women with autoimmune disease, especially if they are interested in being/staying employed. The text is a little too self-consciously sassy in places for my taste, and I wish they went a bit more into what they mean by being a warrior and having warrior spirit (I know what I think that means, but they didn’t talk much about what they think it means, which I would have liked), but there is walth of good information in this book. The authors cover interviewing when you have a chronic illness, “coming out” to coworkers, considering self-employment as an option, and plenty of other material as well. The book is filled with stories from women the authors interviewed and from the authors’ own lives, which makes the ideas and suggestions seem a lot more realistic. Good stuff!
Book 6 in 2008.
