This hardcover book helps kids understand that people with chronic pain conditions often need special care, but that doesn’t mean they don’t like to have a good time. It talks about ‘Aunt Barby’ coming for a visit and how to get the house ready for a special kind of guest.

ReMission Possible; Yours, If You Chose to Accept It
by Barby Ingle
This book is a valuable look into the process of healing socially, emotionally and physically after remission is achieved. Life does not just go back to the way it was before your illness. Recognizing this and moving through it can help you adjust to the new life that you now face. This book is about a patient’s journey, (one year leading up to an IV-Infusion treatment that put author Barby Ingle into remission and one year of what happened after) of health, social; and mental adjustments. ReMission Possible is a follow up book to RSD in Me but also stands alone as a story that you too can achieve. It is a motivational guide to being your own best advocate, “The Chief of Staff of Your Own Medical Team” as Barby likes to say. All of Barby Ingle’s books are wide reaching with one in three Americans dealing with a chronic pain condition of some sort.

Real Love and Good Sex for Pain Patients and Their Partners
by Ken Taylor and Barby Ingle-Taylor
Straight from the hip giving guidance for creating an intimate bond with your partner in pain! This book came about because Barby and Ken were asked to do a small Valentine’s Day segment on CBS for The Doctors TV show in 2013. They realized that they had some valuable insight to making a relationship work even when one of the partners is disabled. What came from this interview, and talking to couples after it aired who are also going through similar situations was unexpected. Ken and Barby decided to put their learned wisdom on the subject into a book to help other couples in similar situations who needed suggestions. For the past year Barby and Ken have been writing this book together. Their hope is that you will find some useful information in this book that can be applied to your own relationships and that you create a real love that is lasting through the challenges of living with a chronic illness. To help the reader of this book we alternated each chapter from our own perspective as a caregiver, patient, lovers, and best friends, except for the last chapter which we decided on together.
The Wisdom of Ingle; Fall Down Get Up in Half a Day
by Jim Ingle and Barby Ingle
My dad and I were driving across New Mexico from Albuquerque to Portales. As we were driving along, the conversation turned to things, we had learned about life and living. I suggested that we put this knowledge into a book called “Wisdom of Ingle” or, as my grandfather would say, “You’re Active as a Cow Fall down and Get up in Half a Day”.
My dad knows things that most other people do not know about when it comes to raising kids or that he was very lucky that his kids turned out as good as we did. His answer was that he had set out to teach us certain principles of life so there was a method to what he did.
I do acknowledge that God led the way. This book is a combination of the Wisdom of Ingle and the leadership and plan of God that is unfolding for our family.
