There is a plethora of books out there on the market by everyone who has anything to say about MS! From the "cure" diets, to special exercises, to how to deal with it, to what to expect, to living with it, to whatever...
I'd like to know what books any of you have found the most helpful. In my Amazon explorations, I've bought a slew of used books already and devoured a few that I've found useful to get me a foundation on this thing but now I'm at the point of living with it day in day out, teaching my husband so he doesn't give me "that look" again (like here we go or I really think you're making more of this than it is or you really look fine to me) and dealing with family members outside (his family who doesn't understand when I'm crashed or at my limits and can't take one more demand).
So advice? Your favorite books? Ideas? Would love to hear them... hubby said last night he wants to learn and understand ... actually if it was on video it might be better (hope it's a good video) because he's more a TV guy than ever a book guy!
The only book in my MS-related library is this one:
"Multiple Sclerosis: The Questions You Have -- The Answers You Need", edited by Rosalind C. Kalb, Ph.D., published by Demos Medical Publishing, New York. It's expensive, but if you have only one... $39.95
I have the second edition. There may be a third edition right now.
I like it because it is written in question-and-answer format, includes some of the very basic questions that newly diagnosed folks would ask, and also has some highly technical stuff. I've had the book for years, and still find new stuff I didn't know, or forgot.
And now you know why I "seem" so "smart". I pull out this book and start from here, when I offer my opinions!
