The Rollercoaster of Chronic Illness:
How to Add Joy to the Ride

An Interview with Motivational Speaker
and Psychotherapist Dr. Ann Steiner


In this audio MP3, Dr. Steiner offers an upbeat, practical guide for people living with arthritis, diabetes, chronic illnesses or pain. While sharing her story of discovering ways to coexist peacefully with arthritis, she shares how she has been able to make her limitations just one part of who she is as a person. She helps listeners find new ways to make the most of life with limitations, deal with the challenges that illness brings to relationship issues, trust, and intimacy. The recording also benefits family members, health care workers, and those whose lives are affected by ill relatives and friends. It includes materials that have been road-tested over a long career of offering one-on-one counsel, lecturing, and giving presentations to professionals, patients, caregivers and family members nationally.


  • Increase understanding of your reactions to the limitations illness brings.
  • Meet your needs through suggestions and practical tips.
  • Discover the gift of compassion for yourself.
