The Prepared Family Guide to Uncommon Diseases



They're here!  I am so excited, I can hardly contain myself.  The big brown truck showed up this morning and delivered 5 big boxes of the "Uncommon Diseases" book right to my doorstep.  What a momentous occasion!

I had already ordered one copy and picked it apart bit by bit and I have no doubt I will find something that I don't think is up to par in this edition, but at some point I just had say enough and get it done.  I think the information is tremendously helpful and very timely.  Every day I see some disease mentioned on the news that we thought was all but eradicated.  It seems that many uncommon diseases are becoming not so uncommon after all.  And I think it will only get worse.



Sir Knight and I added a fairly extensive shopping list in the back of the book so you could prepare ahead of a crisis and be armed with appropriate equipment to battle whatever disease may come your way.  Also, there are lists of antibiotics to have on hand and what diseases they are most effective for.  At this point, many antibiotics are available via pet supply sources.  Do your research, know dosages and durations (most of which is in the book) and have supplies on hand before you have a problem.

I did put a button on the left side of the blog, toward the top, that will take you to the Paratus Familia Press website, where you can order your copy of the book.  If any of you have a website and would like to review the book, I would love to hear from you!

  1. I just placed my order! This will be a great addition to my nursing shelf.

    Now, when are you coming out with your cookbook?

    (I sure have been buying a lot of books by authors in your neck of the woods, lately!)

  5. Now that's worth knowing about. Sounds like something I should keep in my library up here on the mountain.

    Congratulations! Can't wait to get my hands on a copy! Will shoot you an email after a few months and ask what would you do differently the next time you self publish. I'm not too bashful to ask for directions from trailblazers!

  13. Hello Everyone!

    I just fixed the button on the order page so that folks can order as many copies as they would like!

    The book is 145 pages.

    Amanda - if you want to send me your email address, I will just send an invoice with the OS shipping rate.

    Thank you so much for your encouragement! I would love to hear from you all with reviews after you have the book in your hands!
