You Don’t LOOK Sick! Living Well With Invisible Chronic Illness is a collection of 12 true stories based on my experience with long-term chronic illness. They are common to many who live with invisible illness. Each story is supported by Dr. Overman’s own experience working with patients as they move through the 4 phases of chronic illness—Getting Sick, Being Sick, Grief and Acceptance and Living Well. This collection of stories, anecdotes, tips, and strategies provide a guide for patients and caregivers in taking positive steps forward and beginning to weave a web of wellness in their lives.
In 2017, I was honored to spend a weekend with an outstanding organization, Songwriting With: Soldiers. At their retreats they pair military veterans with professional songwriters to compose songs about their often traumatic experiences. I was invited to be a join them for a weekend and compose a song with the talented singer/songwriter Georgia Middleman.
