Rather than focusing on the sadness and difficulties that followed her diagnosis, Moorhead deals with the practical problems faced by many MS patients: how to parent effectively, stand up to doctors who think she looks 'fine', and what to do with the mixed bag of cognitive difficulties. Moorhead is a real-life person with real-life reactions to MS -- she fights back when people attack her for parking in the handicapped spot even though she looks normal and she faces life with humour that will lift the spirits and encourage others fighting the disease.

Some good content as a first book on the subject, not too much unique information. Editorial issues are distracting. One chapter ends mid-sentence! Read full review
