MS and Your Feelings Book Excerpt:

Multiple Sclerosis is a devastating, incurable disease that afflicts about one in a thousand North Americans. Striking in the prime of life, it is the most common debilitating neurological disorder of people between the ages of 20 and 40. Eighty percent of patients suffer from cognitive impairments, seventy percent from sexual dysfunction, and fifty percent from depression. Few people are prepared for the emotional impact of this unpredictable, disabling chronic condition. Faced with a life-long progressive illness, patients typically experience fear, anger, sadness, grief, guilt, low self-esteem and sexual dysfunction. Half of all MS patients suffer from clinical depression. Other invisible symptoms, such as cognitive impairments and severe fatigue, often leave patients feeling misunderstood and alone. The emotional affects of MS can be more crippling than the physical challenges, yet little has been written on this topic. MS AND YOUR FEELINGS is the first book to specifically address the emotional pain caused by MS. Psychotherapist and MS patient, Allison Shadday, offers readers effective strategies for coping with the psychological trauma of this disease. Shadday shares real-life MS success stories and offers insightful professional advice derived from years of counseling hundreds of chronically ill patients. Her book offers readers hope, inspiration and validation, and teaches them: -How to come to terms with an MS diagnosis -How to recognize and overcome negative emotional responses to MS -Techniques to identify and manage stress triggers that can impact MS symptoms -Ways to minimize MS-related fatigue -Strategies for coping with fear, guilt, anger, loss, depression and isolation -Steps to enhance intimacy and build support networks -How to deal with cognitive challenges -Tips for increasing self-esteem -How to develop a greater sense of emotional security and stability -Latest information about new treatment options and promising research In addition, noted neurologist and MS expert Dr. Stanley Cohan, Director of the Pacific Northwest Multiple Sclerosis Center writes about the importance of treating the emotional symptoms of MS and discusses the promising future of MS drug research. Full of immediate, useful solutions, MS AND YOUR FEELINGS is an invaluable guide for patients, their loved ones and MS health care professionals.

A Dose of Devotion Book Excerpt:

A Dose of Devotion is much more than just the heartwarming stories of twelve couples who have confronted the challenges of Multiple Sclerosis with grace, humor and courage. It is a blueprint for how all marriages can thrive in the face of adversity. Don't make the mistake of thinking that this book was written exclusively for people who are suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, though. In fact, it is a book that should be read by every couple embarking on a life together. This is what real love looks like. When authors Ronda Giangreco and Jeanne Lassard chose to take on the task of collecting these tender and moving love stories, they had a clear-cut goal in mind - to make an impact on the sobering statistic that nearly 70% of marriages end after a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. It is their hope that through the wisdom, insight and inspiration provided by these couples, others can find the strength to overcome the challenges of a marriage that has been beset by illness or misfortune.

40 Gifts of Hope Book Excerpt:

THIS BOOK IS A GIFT FOR THOSE TIMES OF SICKNESS AND SUFFERING! A tool to give you HOPE and ENCOURAGEMENT! "The unpredictable path of life can bring us face to face with great challenges and suffering. How do we handle these challenges and the suffering that can be so unpredictable? Can we find meaning in suffering? What choices do we have in the turmoil of great challenges? What can we learn from people who have faced great suffering? Let's find out and answer these questions by taking a heart-felt journey of love, hope and inspiration in Paula Umana's new book "40 Gifts of Hope." In this inspiring journey, Paula shares her story of survival as a quadriplegic victim. Her story is interspersed throughout the book with other inspiring stories, including those experiencing cancer, multiple sclerosis, neurological disease, stroke, inflammatory disease, addiction, sexual abuse and autoimmune disease. Each person shares their journey from victim to victor and their thoughts on how you can do the same. Paula is a warm, caring, authentic woman, who delights in sharing her story and thus bringing comfort to those who are in the "eye of the storm". Judith M. Vogtli, Ph.D., M.Ed. Mother of 3, Grandmother of 10 "Wow! Paula, our author, has been given a beautiful spiritual vision. As a Catholic priest, totally blind for 90% of my life, Iam nourished by the deep stories in these pages, and intend to draw upon them in many upcoming missions and retreats. 40 Gifts of Hope reminds us of God‛s mysterious plan and the beauty discovered by the people who trust in Him despite all odds. If anyone needs hope in the face of hardship, Paula‛s story along with the many others shared in this book will remind us of God‛s piercing goodness and our vocation to trust in Him, permitting God to reveal deeper beauty and meaning in the midst of shadows." Rev. Michael Joly "We all need stories like Paula's to remind us of a greater hope. Through these short stories and lessons, we have a guide map to suffer strong." Katherine Wolf, Hope Heals "These stories are truly gifts on my 'down' days. Taking only a few minutes to read but inspiring all day long. The brief backgrounds remind me there are many types of suffering, some harder than my own. My favorite part is the practical advice from others like me that allows me to focus on a positive thing to help me that day." Marianne Gregory, mother of six, diagnosed with stage IV cancer in 2015
