When I was first diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, I went on Amazon and ordered way too many books about MS. I quickly realized how much the disease differs from person to person. Most books depressed me as it seemed many writers had given up or led a very challenging life.
Luckily, I did find a few good ones and compiled a list of the books that have become my favorite.
Blindsided by Richard Cohen. Meredith Viera’s writer husband has been dealing with MS for many years and shares his diagnosis as well as how it affected his career and life.
Faulty Wiring: Living with Invisible Multiple Sclerosis. This book shines a light on the invisible symptoms and expands the definition of what it means to have MS beyond obvious physical disability.
MS Living Symptom Free by Daryl H. Bryant. This is a very optimistic guide to using food and exercise to control, reduce and eliminate MS symptoms.
MS and Your Feelings – Handling the Ups and Downs of Multiple Sclerosis by Allison Shadda. This book specifically addresses the emotional pain caused by the unpredictable, disabling chronic inflammatory condition multiple sclerosis.
Yoga and Multiple Sclerosis by Loren M. Fishman, MD & Eric L. Small. I partially like this thorough book because it offers variations for those in wheelchairs and unable to walk or even stand.
