Debbie Petrina understands MS: she has spent 41 years living with it and over 30 years educating, counseling, interacting and volunteering through numerous channels to help anyone deal with it. Since publishing Managing MS-Straight Talk from a Thirty-One Year Survivor in 2011, she was inspired to write this enhanced 2nd edition as her MS journey continued, explaining how to proceed in the complicated and ever-changing world of MS.
Newly-diagnosed or older with MS? Trying to figure out the basics, what treatments to take, symptoms, interrelationships? Or, how to handle difficult subjects like bladder/bowel problems, mental health, stigmas and employment? In a "what to know, what to do" user-friendly format, readers are guided easily through current MS information and resources available today.
Managing MS offers patients and their loved ones hands-on knowledge and support to make life easier and less fearful. Others assisting MS patients will understand MS from a survivor's viewpoint, and how they can help them move forward.
