Many people do not know that I live with multiple sclerosis (MS). When most people see me walking with my cane or my walker, they assume I have been in an accident. No. I have not been in an accident that limits my mobility.
I walk with a cane or a walker because I have balance issues and sometimes I am unsteady on my feet. The assistive devices give me the support and confidence to move around and go where I want I need to.
Is it frustrating? Yes, without a doubt. MS is unpredictable and it is a chronic autoimmune disease. There is no cure.
I have been living with MS for 25 years. I have the most common form, relapsing-remitting. When I was diagnosed years ago, the information on the disease was a lot less than what is currently available (technology and all).
As a result, I spent days, weeks and months learning about the disease. All of the information I gathered is available in Bad Nerves: Living with MS. Why? Because I know what it was like to have questions about my diagnosis and I wanted to make it easier for others. This book is written in plain English. It has interviews with caregivers, a neurologist and other medical professionals. As well as a glossary of terms commonly used in relation to MS and resources for persons living with a disability.
This resource book is full of information. It has valuable information for MS sufferers, family members and those who want to know more about the disease.
