Overview

Education about multiple sclerosis has traditionally been medically oriented and related to disease and dysfunction. In contrast, this brand-new second edition of the Guide continues to focus on staying well in the presence of MS, a disease that - while incurable - can be managed. The book covers a broad spectrum of topics related to MS and its effects, focusing especially on the needs of those who have been living with the disease for some time. Practical tips on self-care are designed to promote maximum independence, well-being, and productivity. The theme of the book - wellness - can be described by the acronym: Weighing options; Eating well; Living to your fullest; Learning new skills; Needing others; Evaluating situations realistically; Surviving stress; and Staying responsible.

Contributors to the book are professionals who have a specialty or a special interest in MS. Their suggestions, advice, and strategies come from years of experience in the field. It is their hope that readers will come away with fresh ideas on how to cope with the ever-changing challenges of MS.
