Dear friends,
 
I am reading a great book.  I am at the one year mark for when I first experienced MS symtpoms.  It has been an interesting year for me.  I am learning what it means to live with MS.  I have struggled with the emotional side of this disease every bit as much as with the physical side.  At times I felt like I was losing my mind.  I have listened to many of you expresss similar feelings.  I checked out the books section of the resources section this site.  Look over to the right and you will see it.  I took a chance and ordered MS and Your Feelings: handling the ups and downs of Multiple Sclerosis.  This book was written by Allison Shadday who is a therapist and who also has MS.  This book has really helped me straighten a few things out.  It is a wonderful resource and I hope it can help others the way it has helped me.  Good luck to all of you who also struggle with this aspect of MS.
 
Love and prayers,

Lorna,
 
I just want to know one thing.  What is it that you are selling?  This thread was not a segway for your pitch.

Hi Gretchen,

Thanks for the book name. I will pick it up as soon as I can. I know that non MSers don't know or care what we feel everyday so we have to care about ourselves. Thanks again for the book title. It sounds interesting.
