Resilience Redefined: Thriving With Autoimmune Disease

Resilience Redefined Book Cover




Becoming highly attuned to my body through self-awareness and self-compassion is what my health sidekick has taught me. And calling it a sidekick was imperative for me to stop viewing myself as someone with a disease and rather as someone who simply lives well because her sidekick reminds her to take care of herself.

– Robyn Pineault, Resilience Redefined Co-Author
