Publisher's Description

These days we are discharged from hospital faster than ever before. We're supposed to be 'our old selves', to 'bounce back', to 'get well soon'. But no one tells us how to do this. Serious health problems - including heart attack, stroke or surgery - can take their toll not just on the body, but on your emotions, morale and wellbeing. In days gone by, a period of convalescence was the norm - a time to rebuild both mind and body. Nowadays it seems no one has the time to convalesce. Consequently, many of us suffer, often in silence, long after our physical symptoms are under control. In How to Feel Better, the authors offer simple, evidence-based strategies that will help you move on and cope after a serious health problem. These include:

* Getting the best from your follow-up care
* Dealing with worry and stress
* Coping with depression and low mood
* Feeling confident again
* Rebuilding sexual relationships
* Understanding and managing fatigue
* Rebuilding your strength and wellbeing through relaxation, exercise and eating well

How to Feel Better is an invaluable companion for anyone who has had a health setback - and for their carers too.This is the 'modern art of convalescence' - simple ideas and sound advice to help you not just cope, but thrive.
