Pub. Date:
Furney, a physician in private practice and a professor at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, was a 34-year-old wife and mother when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000. For all those dealing with a personal or family diagnosis, she offers explanations of medical issues and reflections on her own experiences. Some of the issues she discusses here are depression, telling others about the diagnosis, and the impact of MS on career and family decisions. An appendix summarizes the facts, causes, and types of MS, and a list of organizations, Web sites, and print resources is included. In addition to patients and families, the book will also be of interest to healthcare professionals, psychologists, psychiatrists, and physical and occupational therapists.
