About The Book
My Story is an evocative description of what it is like to live with multiple sclerosis, a disease that affects about 350,000 Americans and whose cause is still not entirely known. The essays and accompanying photographs poignantly portray the lives of thirty-two men and women from the ages of seventeen to seventy and of various ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds who share the challenge of living with MS. Some use no mobility aids, while others use canes, wheelchairs, or electric scooters. All have had to face the challenges and limitations that MS has imposed upon their lives, and each has devised unique and often creative coping strategies. Accompanying each essay are commentaries by family members and friends that express their own personal feelings and experiences of living with this disease. Treatments and therapies for slowing the progression of the disease are revealed and shared, from the latest advances in prescription medication to alternative methods of coping, including yoga; exercise and competitive sports; creative activities such as writing and art; and even community activism. Highly motivating and deeply inspirational, My Story will be welcomed by anyone who lives with or shares the life of someone who has MS.
