Who hasn't had a 'poor me' moment, when that little black raincloud seems to follow you and you alone around? For thousands of Americans, that little black raincloud's name is multiple sclerosis. Author Chris Tatevosian was diagnosed with this life-interrupting disease in the prime of life. Without realizing it, his 'poor me' attitude and difficulties coping with the disease cost him what he felt was a marriage made in heaven. Could he have done something differently?
In Life Interrupted Tatevosian shares many of the self-destructive, relationship-busting behaviors to avoid as well as helpful, healing ones to implement. He gives a firsthand account of multiple sclerosis, including the drugs and treatments that have been particularly beneficial for him. Stressing compassion and understanding for other family members, Tatevosian also asserts that his deep faith helped him through rocky times.
By sharing his experiences, Tatevosian instructs readers in the awareness, knowledge, and understanding they need to deal more positively with the emotional and physical stresses put on a relationship interrupted by chronic illness or disability. Warmly written and bravely told, Life Interrupted is a perfect book for any patient or caregiver.
