Self Published Author Reveals a Life of Happiness and Joy in the Midst of Terminal Illness


Elaine Young McGuire reveals how people affected with AIDS can continue leading a happy, normal life in her self-published book.

Bloomington, IN, August 21, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Too often, many people affected with a terminal illness are not prepared when confronted with the idea of death, let alone accept their fate. They are usually shrouded with fear and uncertainty about what would lurk ahead. Leading a normal life can be very difficult for those suffering from a terminal illness and for their loved ones as well.

For people affected with AIDS, it especially takes a lot of courage to accept their predicament when dealing with this terminal sickness. This has inspired Elaine Young McGuire, who has lost a brother and a son to AIDS, to publish the book ‘The Good Thing about AIDS, The Bad Thing about AIDS’.

The Good Thing about AIDS, The Bad Thing about AIDS is a compelling self-published book that can touch hearts and open up minds. It teaches one that an illness should not define one’s life and that it should not get in the way of living normally.

This Xlibris release shows that one can still live, laugh and learn more if one changes perspectives and embrace the condition of one’s life. Smart and heartwarming illustrations by Roy Chung also take you into the beauty and madness of wholeheartedly accepting your ordeal with a terminal illness and looking at the situation with a bright eye.

Death is not the be-all and end-all of everything. It does not always mean a loss. In fact, it is just the beginning of something new. People affected with terminal illnesses, as well as their loved ones, should understand how important it is to embrace and accept things as they come. Only then will one learn to be able to live a life truly worth living.

The Good Thing about AIDS, The Bad Thing about AIDS is published by Xlibris.
