Life After Multiple Sclerosis

MS (Multiple Sclerosis) is a dread disease diagnosis decree whereby victims are given a SLOW DEATH sentence.

Time to start a 'load of crap' category...

If you want to read more go here. I guess this this the kind of hype you need to sell a book.

Russ,
OK, I was probably a little harsh. Just finding your site right after reading the Larry King/Montel Williams hype hit me wrong. Too many people think MS is a death sentence, or at least terminal, I think this contibutes to general public/employeer attitudes toward MS. I'll give your book a chance and buy it.
Cheers and good luck.

Russ, it's a bit disingenuous to compare the kind of overblown, untrue rhetoric with which you begin your article to being slow to accept a diagnosis.

I am sorry that you don't care for my personal MS story and using it in partially explaning how I came about writing the FSBO novel.

I have received e-mail contacts about the Multiple Sclerosis from others who were slow to accept their diagnosis, too. I feel that each of us contends with bad news in our own personal way. I hope I have been able to encourage.

Putting others down, or questioning their motovation for telling their own story, does not encourage many to share ~ least they land in a 'load of crap' category.
