Reviews about Chronic Sorrow: A Living Loss (Series in Death, Dying, and Bereavement) (7):
Fenrikasa
This is the perfect book for anyone living with a person who has a severe chronic disability, whether it is the person himself or herself or someone for whom constant care is required. She perfectly captures the exhaustion, despair and anguish of the living loss as well as the joy experienced for small meaningful accomplishments. I highly recommend this book for any parent who has a child with autism, cerebral palsy or mental illness as well as those who suffer sudden traumatic spinal cord or brain injury or changes in adulthood such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's. It is a fantastic read and should be mandatory in medical school curriculums not just nursing.

puts things in perspective if you have some sorrow but not chronic sorrow
Felolune
Excellent. This book gave me so much insight into myself, my situation, my feelings. So many professionals are not aware of chronic sorrow and they need to be educated on this topic that covers many of us who live daily in some sort of pain whether it be physical or psychological or both.

Wonderful book, well written. Read it in my sociology course. Interesting material on an oftentimes overlooked subject.

My husband suffered a severe Traumatic Brain Injury on 4/16/02. After every TBI, no matter how mild or severe, personalities are changed. That means losing your original loved one and grieving him, yet knowing he is still here, but very different physically, cognitively and emotionally

I was hoping to get some help with this book on accepting my grief and moving on with whatever is left of our lives together. However, I found that it was mostly about congenital disabilities and those where the loved ones' personality basically stays the same. I was disappointed that still no one seems to acknowledge how difficult it is to be a spouse and caregiver to a loved one who has sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury. I am hoping to see more written about it in the future. It is a unique phenomena that only those of us who live with it seem to know about.

This book is the most comprehensive piece of work (I have seen) about the concept of chronic sorrow when families deal with special needs.

As the mom of two kids with cystic fibrosis, an author and public speaker, I've done alot of studying about the stages of grief as well as experiencing it personally. I found Roos' work to be especially helpful in helping me to understand the impact of chronic grief which is different than the grief that is experienced with a loss that is more of a "one shot deal." I have a better understanding of why I find myself re-cycling through the stages of grief just when I thought I was getting to acceptance.

This is a research based, technical work and is meant for therapists, medical professionals, etc. If you are looking for something of a more practical, how-to nature when raising kids with special needs and chronic illness (including a section of grief and how it impacts parenting responses), see

Susan Roos hit the nail on the head in defining what it is like being the parent of a child with special needs. The book is very well written, with just enough personal experience combined with professional expertise. For professionals in the field, her writing will provide an in-depth parent perspective of the realities of everyday caregiving and advocating for your child. For parents or family members caring for children with disabilities, this book will give validation to the feelings that have likely plagued you with guilt all these years.
The book is written for therapists and as such it is a bit dense. The information and examples are wonderful. It covers this important topic beautifully. I believe anyone working with chronic illness will recognize the need for this book.
