I've long believed that humor is essential to healing well. Certainly nothing can help us feel better than a good laugh! But it's not always easy to be open to it. Blogger Carla Ulbrich helps us realize that it really isn't that hard. Carla is the author of a new book titled How Can You NOT Laugh at a Time Like This?: Reclaim Your Health with Humor, Creativity, and Grit. It is filled with funny, wry and honest observations and essays about coping with chronic illness. I like this book because it doesn't ignore or trivialize the reality of chronic illness. Yet she has a hopeful outlook on life which opens up new horizons and possibilities if we just look for them.
