Three Books About Pulmonary Hypertension You Should Read

Posted on August 08, 2020

Thousands of members of myPHteam connect with one another and read each other's stories to gain perspective and validation about living with pulmonary hypertension (PH). Another way to discover how to live better with PH is through books written by people who have this condition. We combed through member book recommendations and collected a list of the most popular.

1. You Don't Look Sick!: Living Well With Chronic Invisible Illness by Joy H. Selak
Pulmonary hypertension is invisible, yet sometimes unbearable to the person living with it. This book covers topics ranging from health insurance to coping with loss of function, and is applicable to anyone living with a chronic condition.

2. Sick and Tired: Empathy, Encouragement, and Practical Help for Those Suffering from Chronic Health Problems by Kimberly Rae
When half of America suffers from a chronic condition, it is crucial to gain support and information on the road to achieving peace and acceptance. Rae's book is a must-read for anyone living with or caring for someone with a chronic condition.


3. Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
An incredible yet heart-wrenching story about living and dying. As Morrie says, “Love is how you stay alive, even after you are gone.”

Check out some book recommendations and favorites from Members of myPHteam:

"I have been reading and researching."

"From what I have researched a great deal of my issues all stem from years of sleep apnea which causes so many health problems and makes things worse."

"You take care and keep reading. My book supply will surely outlast me!"
