I am a terrible faster. Can anyone suggest something to read that will convey the proper mood but be possible for someone not feeling well to manage?

I just bought this book for my family, and I second the recommendation. Really well done (in English).

Its possible because youre a bad faster and dont feel well, you will be able to break your fast after chatzos.

Feel good.
