So many books are written for the sick & disabled, on how to cope, but rarely does anyone address the stress or coping strategies of the spouses & caretakers. They are the forgotten, out-of-sight victims of disease & disability, hence 'In the Shadows'. This book does an excellent job of depicting the realistic situations and stages of acceptance & frustration that the loved ones encounter. It validates and explains the myriad of feelings that can overwhelm you. I found it to be reassuring & informative to discover that my feelings & experiences were actually common reactions to what are decidedly, some very tough situations. It offers insight & understanding to doctors, nurses & therapists and a sense of relief to the 'shadowed' loved ones.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
