When the Diagnosis is Multiple Sclerosis:
Help, Hope and Insights from an Affected Physician
Kym Orsetti Furney, M.D.
Praeger Publishers, December 2007
This morning, I read an article on the Charlotte Observer website about Dr. Kym Furney’s new book,When the Diagnosis is Multiple Sclerosis: Help, Hope, and Insights from an Affected Physician. It looks like a very good resource for understanding and coping with MS.
“Furney’s well-researched and compassionate writing will not only empower people newly diagnosed with MS, but will give family members insight into the physical and emotional challenges for their loved one, challenges that she or he may not immediately be able to voice. This work also offers invaluable insights for healthcare professionals, psychologists, psychiatrists, physical and occupational therapists.” (Praeger Publishers)
Furney’s book might not be a good one for everyone’s night table, but for folks and families who live with MS, it looks like a good source of support.
The Charlotte Observer article is quite good and includes and interview with Furney. You can read it here.
