I have just added a new page to My Multiple Sclerosis – A Personal Account and I include this post to highlight the fact because new pages are not immediately visible to the passing visitor. The new page replaces an old page listing MS related books as the old page was not especially informative and many of the books had gone out of print.
The new page includes:
- Awkward Bitch: My Life with MS by Marlo Donato Parmelee
- Managing Multiple Sclerosis Naturally: A Self-Help Guide to Living with MS by Judy Graham
- Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis: An Evidence-Based Guide to Recovery by George Jelinek
- Coping With Multiple Sclerosis: A Comprehensive Guide to the Symptoms and Treatments by Richard Reynolds and Cynthia Benz
- Multiple Sclerosis – The Essential Guide by Leonie Martin
- Magical Sense – Living with MS by Sue Chambers
The new page can be found under the menu option at the top-right of the screen just below the header image. Or you may just click HERE to go directly.
One of the things I find most infuriating about MS, and this is probably a gripe personal to me, Is the brain fog and loss of short term memory. It makes the reading of books difficult. Not because I find the process of reading at all challenging. It is just that I don’t remember what I have read.
I am currently trying to work through the complete works of Charles Dickens, something of a gargantuan task, and by the time I have finished a book I have forgotten who the characters have been. Yes, I may remember the central characters, but the other players will have gone from my memory entirely.
It is more of an issue when I am reading books with material of a technical nature. Obviously, in this circumstance, remembering details is rather more important than recalling the ancillary characters in a Dickens novel.
