Living with a Secret (Why Me #3)

by Deborah Kent

15-year-old Cassie Mullins is fed up with her parents, who think she can't be trusted to manage her diabetes. Just because she cheated on her diet and landed in the hospital. Just because she wants to be a normal kid. Only Aunt Liz seems to understand, and she urges Cassie to take a job as counselor at a camp for diabetic children. Camp Caribou seems like the perfect solution. Cassie's free and her parents think she's safe. There's only one problem: she's the only counselor who is diabetic. And she has decided to keep it a secret. It's not easy to conceal the truth. Cassie can't even tell Jason, the cute counselor who has become a special friend. Her world falls apart when her parents show up unexpectedly and reveal her secret. Cassie's furious and ashamed. And Jason feels betrayed that she hadn't told him. Suddenly, nothing seems to matter. Why be careful when nobody trusts her anyway? Cassie is about to learn the lesson of her life. About love, compassion, responsibility. . . and the real meaning of friendship and self-respect.

Living with a Wild God

by Barbara Ehrenreich

In middle age, Ehrenreich came across the journal she had kept during her tumultuous adolescence and set out to reconstruct that quest, which had taken her to the study of science and through a cataclysmic series of uncanny-or as she later learned to call them, "mystical"-experiences. A staunch atheist and rationalist, she is profoundly shaken by the implications of her life-long search. Part memoir, part philosophical and spiritual inquiry, LIVING WITH A WILD GOD brings an older woman's wry and erudite perspective to a young girl's uninhibited musings on the questions that, at one point or another, torment us all. Ehrenreich's most personal book ever will spark a lively and heated conversation about religion and spirituality, science and morality, and the "meaning of life." Certain to be a classic, LIVING WITH A WILD GOD combines intellectual rigor with a frank account of the inexplicable, in Ehrenreich's singular voice, to produce a true literary achievement.

Living with Alzheimer's: Managing Memory Loss, Identity, and Illness

by Renée L. Beard

News of Alzheimer's disease is constantly in the headlines. Every day we hear heart-wrenching stories of people caring for a loved one who has become a shell of their former self, of projections about rising incidence rates, and of cures that are just around the corner. However, we don't see or hear from the people who actually have the disease. In Living with Alzheimer's, Renée L. Beard argues that the exclusively negative portrayals of Alzheimer's are grossly inaccurate. To understand what life with memory loss is really like, Beard draws on intensive observations of nearly 100 seniors undergoing cognitive evaluation, as well as post-diagnosis interviews with individuals experiencing late-in-life forgetfulness. Since we all forget sometimes, seniors with an Alzheimer's diagnosis ultimately need to be socialized into medicalized interpretations of their forgetfulness. In daily life, people with the disease are forced to manage stigma and the presumption of incompetence on top of the actual symptoms of their ailment. The well-meaning public, and not their dementia, becomes the major barrier to a happy life for those affected. Beard also examines how these perceptions affect treatment for Alzheimer's. Interviews with clinicians and staff from the Alzheimer's Association reveal that despite the best of intentions, pejorative framings of life with dementia fuel both clinical practice and advocacy efforts. These professionals perpetuate narratives about "self-loss," "impending cures," and the economic and emotional "burden" to families and society even if they do not personally believe them. Yet, Beard also concludes that in spite of these trends, most of the diagnosed individuals in her study achieve a graceful balance between accepting the medical label and resisting the social stigma that accompanies it. In stark contrast to the messages we receive, this book provides an unprecedented view into the ways that people with early Alzheimer's actively and deliberately navigate their lives.

Living With Co-occurring Addiction And Mental Health Disorders: A Handbook For Recovery

by Scott Edelstein Mark McGovern

About eleven million people in North America have a substance use disorder and at least one other mental health disorder. Those who struggle with this combination may be faced with a powerful recipe for destruction, especially self-destruction. The good news is that there is help. This handbook draws from an evidence-based program by a team at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, internationally-recognized pioneers in the integrated treatment of co-occurring disorders. Co-occurring Addiction and Mental Health Disorders is designed to inform and empower those with such "dual disorders". Author Mark McGovern shows how they can make informed choices about their own treatment and, together with a trained clinician, shape a program that works. Key topics include: getting an assessment; reviewing treatment options; selecting the right treatment team; setting achievable goals and making positive changes with cognitive-behavioral therapy; building a support network of family and friends; and connecting with others recovering from co-occurring disorders. Informative, thorough, and easy to follow, this book has helped many people with co-occurring disorders thrive and be their own best recovery advocates.

Living with Complexity

by Donald A. Norman

If only today's technology were simpler! It's the universal lament, but it's wrong. In this provocative and informative book, Don Norman writes that the complexity of our technology must mirror the complexity and richness of our lives. It's not complexity that's the problem, it's bad design. Bad design complicates things unnecessarily and confuses us. Good design can tame complexity. Norman gives us a crash course in the virtues of complexity. Designers have to produce things that tame complexity. But we too have to do our part: we have to take the time to learn the structure and practice the skills. This is how we mastered reading and writing, driving a car, and playing sports, and this is how we can master our complex tools. Complexity is good. Simplicity is misleading. The good life is complex, rich, and rewarding -- but only if it is understandable, sensible, and meaningful.

Living with Intent

by Deepak Chopra Mallika Chopra

"I'm trying to meditate one day but urgent thoughts keep intruding. Don't forget to take cupcakes to school! I have to prepare for my presentation for the wellness conference! Is that lunch with the other moms tomorrow or next week? My to-do list is stampeding through my mind, trampling any chance of tranquility. I feel overwhelmed, yes, but there's more: I feel...guilty. Guilty that I'm taking on too much, guilty that I'm not doing anything well, guilty that I'm giving short shrift to my kids, my husband, my job. And what about you, Mallika? a quiet voice asks. How are you shortchanging yourself?" Living with Intent is a chronicle of Mallika Chopra's search to find more meaning, joy, and balance in life. She hopes that by telling her story, she can inspire others with her own successes (and failures) as well as share some of the wisdom she has gathered from friends, experts, and family along the way-- people like her dad, Deepak, as well as Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, Arianna Huffington, Andrew Weil, and Dan Siegel. She also provides a practical road map for how we can all move from thought to action to outcome. Each chapter is devoted to one step on her journey and another piece of her INTENT action plan: Incubate, Notice, Trust, Express, Nurture, and Take Action. Chopra's insights and advice will help us all come closer to fully living the lives we truly intend.From the Hardcover edition.

Living with the Dead (Women of the Otherworld #9)

by Kelley Armstrong

They're smart, sexy, and supernatural. They're the men and women of the Otherworld--a realm of witches, ghosts, and werewolves who live unseen among us. Only now a reckless killer has torn down the wall, trapping one very human woman in the supernatural cross fire. Robyn Peltier moved to Los Angeles after her young husband's sudden death, trying to put some distance between herself and her memories. Though she's still grieving, the challenges of her new life as the PR consultant to Portia Kane--the world's most famous celebutante wannabe--can sometimes be amusing, even distracting. But when her client is gunned down in the back room of a nightclub, Robyn is suddenly on the run as the prime suspect in the murder. And as more bodies pile up around her, it seems like only Hope Adams, Robyn's best friend, and Hope's somewhat spooky boyfriend Karl are on Robyn's side. Hope Adams follows the kinds of stories whose headlines scream from supermarket checkout lines. But the difference is that Hope's stories are even weirder--and they're all true. Though determined to help Robyn, Hope knows it's only a matter of time before her friend is caught. But it's not the police Hope is worried about. For Robyn has gotten herself in the middle of a turf war between two powerful Otherworld cabals who'll spill any amount of blood--human and inhuman--to protect what they consider theirs for all eternity. And the only way Hope can keep her friend alive is by letting her enter a world she's safer knowing nothing about. (From the Hardcover edition.)

Living with the Devil

by Stephen Batchelor

Stephen Batchelor's seminal work on humanity's struggle between good and evil In the national bestseller Living with the Devil, Batchelor traces the trajectory from the words of the Buddha and Christ, through the writings of Shantideva, Milton, and Pascal, to the poetry of Baudelaire, the fiction of Kafka, and the findings of modern physics and evolutionary biology to examine who we really are, and to rest in the uncertainty that we may never know. Like his previous bestseller, Buddhism without Beliefs, Living with the Devil is also an introduction to Buddhism that encourages readers to nourish their "buddha nature" and make peace with the devils that haunt human life. He tells a poetic and provocative tale about living with life's contradictions that will challenge you to live your life as an existence imbued with purpose, freedom, and compassion--rather than habitual self-interest and fear.

Living with the Passive-Aggressive Man

by Scott Wetzler

Living Your Best Life PA: Ten Strategies for Getting From Where You Are to Where You're Meant to Be

by Laura Berman Fortgang

Being happy doesn't have to be hard, says prominent personal coach Laura Berman Fortgang. We each possess an internal compass that expresses our individual wisdom and points to the things that would most fulfill us. Personal and professional satisfaction, Fortgang believes, comes from tapping into this wisdom. In Living Your Best Life, she offers ten tried-and-true strategies that help us to access our own inner knowledge to achieve what she calls a "best life"-a life that awaits all of us, in which gains come more easily because we've learned to honor our true desires and work with our individual talents rather than exhausting our energy on a traditional model of achievement. Her techniques focus on asking ourselves what we really want instead of frenetically trying to "have it all." We learn to ask questions that move us forward, not backward, to discover our own unique "lucrative purpose," and to design a "magnet" life plan that draws to us the more rewarding existence we deserve.
