      This is one of my top 3 MS books that I keep multiples of to loan out to friends and newly diagnosed acquaintainces it s that good My husband bought this for me and it hit home so strongly that I ll be honest and say I threw it across the room a few times before I was ready to receive the information it contained I ve loaned it to friends with other chronic illnesses not MS as well and they have also found great insight and help from it Allison Shadday is an excellent writer and as a LCSW with M [...]

      Very good Written by a social worker who has MS allowing it to be seen from a professional as well as a personal viewpoint.I highly recommend it for anyone who just received the MS diagnosis or who has a loved one with MS Easy to read, easy to understand, and very affirming.5 years later I came across a paper where I wrote down sections of this book I liked p 10 11 The myelin sheath is gradually destroyed the nerves no longer can effectively do their job they must travel in a less efficient rout [...]

      This book was written by a woman on Friday Harbor and is absolutely amazing It explains perfectly what I and many others deal with on a daily basis I found it two weeks after I was diagnosed and it helped me to see the light at the end of the tunnel This book was truly mine and Simon s saving grace He loved it too Please recommend it to anyone else you may know who has been diagnosed It will change their lives.

      Even reading this after just being newly diagnosed, I did not learn anything I couldn t pull off the internet for free and informative, without all the maudlin platitudes I get sick of all these honest and inspirational books on MS, when I find they are anything but that Uninteresting, and though they re dry and not easily accessible for the layperson, my time is much better spent reading medical texts and publications about the disease then dreck like this.

      I wish I had this book 16 years ago It is fantastic to read from a LCSW who not only worked with home bound MS patients, but who also has MS Anyone who has MS or a chronic condition could benefit from her insights I loved the various perspectives from MS patients and the coping strategies she addresses Half of the time I read the book, I constantly found myself nodding in agreement or acknowledgement that I can relate.

      Great book Has question answer portions Also have caretaker and family member sections so that others who live with you or help you can understand a little about what you re going through Also, makes your feelings make sense so you don t feel like you re crazy for feeling a certain way Love this book and use it as a resource regularly.

    7. Jill Frederickson on said:

      This is a very helpful book So many MS books deal with all the physical and lightly touch on the emotions and inner life issues this disease tends to bring up, so this was a very refreshing reversal Highly recommended for both folks with MS and the people who are a part of their lives.

    8. Gert on said:

      REALLY helpful and exact in explaining the effects of MS on the body and the person I would recommend everyone who has MS read this and pass copies on to family and friends.
