Overview

Multiple sclerosis can be a true roller coaster of emotions, and it’s critical that patients learn how to deal with these feelings — half of those living with MS warrant medical intervention for depression at some point. It's Not All in Your Head is a cognitive-behavioral approach to overcoming the depression, anxiety, and stress that goes hand-in-hand with this disease. Patricia Farrell helps individuals and their families better understand the effects that MS has on mood levels and anxiety, and she offers a plan of simple remediation in a self-help format. Farrell also provides a brief discussion of the diagnosis of MS and its effects on the many areas of an individual’s life, as well as an easy-to-understand explanation of the underlying neurology and why MS is now considered a neuropsychiatric disorder. A resource to help the millions with MS unaware that depression, euphoria, indifference, and other symptoms are among the most noticeable characteristics of multiple sclerosis, the book provides easy-to-understand concepts that lead to empowerment and understanding.
