Life isn’t for the faint-hearted – nor is living with chronic illness. Grief, acceptance, loneliness, friendship, small joys, healing moments, new perspectives: here are forty-one short poems that offer bite-sized comfort and connection for anyone in need of a tonic.


This book is by Anna Davidson, who attended Yoga for Life classes throughout 2023. The cover design and illustration are by Mandy Norman, who is also a member of the YFL community. Having made a full recovery, Mandy now teaches a new Slow Flow Yoga class on a Monday.


‘Brave, thoughtful, funny at times and almost unbearably poignant at others, and yet always so generous in sharing an experience of chronic illness when people can feel invisible. I think these poems will comfort many readers, and educate still more. I already have a growing list of people I can’t wait to share this book with.’

Sarah Salway, poet & novelist


‘I love how expressive, thoughtful, emotional and emotive [the poems] can be…Anna definitely captures many of my thoughts and feelings living with Long Covid…I could relate immensely.’
Julie Taylor, Living with Long Covid podcast
