Ashley Boynes-Shuck is the acclaimed and award-winning author of the humorous memoir, Sick Idiot, which made great waves and collected positive and critical customer reviews from all around. Although, nothing can come close to her post-apocalyptic fiction novel, To Exist, the new addition to her repertoire is Chronically Positive, which shows the potential to be the next great book by the author.

Chronically Positive is a comprehensive and articulate collection of Ashley’s most popular blog posts about well-known chronic health issues and illnesses.
