MS and Your Feelings: Handling the Ups and Downs of Multiple Sclerosis © Allison Shadday, LCSW

© 2008 Beth Helstien

Shadday shares real-life MS success stories and gives insightful professional advice derived from years of counseling hundreds of chronically ill patients. Her book offers readers hope, inspiration and validation. She addresses how to come to terms with a diagnosis; strategies for identifying and managing stress triggers; ways to cope with fear, guilt, anger, loss, depression, and isolation; and steps to enhance intimacy and develop a greater sense of emotional security. Shadday wants islanders to know that her book is applicable for people with many types of chronic illness in addition to MS.

MS and Your Feelings, like all books reviewed here, may be found at the San Juan Island Library.
