Format: Paperback
This book deals with day to day life problems, with the main point being LIVING! Rather than just another "disease of the week" tragedia, Judy Lynn and her "froup" tell it like it is.
If you're looking for high drama, you won't find it here. What you WILL find is a book about how ordinary people, living ordinary lives, make their lives "do-able" in sometimes EXTRAordinary ways.
I wish there had been something like this book around when I was seeking answers to my questions back when I was newly diagnosed. It would have saved me a lot of the fear that came from reading some of the misinformation that is still, unfortunately, out there.
It's not "gloom and doom", it's not "sweetness and light", it's factual, funny, sad, and presents life with MS in the matter of fact way that this "froup" deals with it all.
Thank you Judy-Lynn and online sisters! More, please?

I was recommended by a fellow MSer to read this book, and I am so very happy that I did. It deals with our real world, living with MS, the ups and downs, trials and tribulations, the good and the bad days. I passed it on to my parents, who at the time were second guessing my abilitites, and after reading it they understood more clearly what my world is like with this shadow we have come to call Multiple Sclerosis. I hope that there is a Part Two in the works. Thank You!

Format: Paperback
As a recently diagnosed 28-yr.old, this book depressed me more than informed or enlightened me. The women in the author's online circle are mostly 40-50 yrs. old, and while they have years of experiencing problems with MS, much of their info is outdated, as they were diagnosed, or not diagnosed with outdated methods, such as before the MRI came about, etc., whereas I got a diagnosis within a week or two after my first onset of an episode with the slew of testing at a wonderful clinic. Also, their experiences or episodes can be treated today, though they perhaps couldn't be treated 20 years ago. My problems are under control through the treatments available today, but reading these stories made it sound like I was in for an intolerable haul. I would not recommend this book to a younger (<30) MS patient because so much is outdated and actually lead me to a bout of depression.

Format: Paperback
I was afraid I would find another book of inspirational stories that somehow miss the mark when it comes to understanding what we with MS experience. Instead, I found a book that tells it like it is, that depicts some of the ordeals we go through from getting the diagnosis to dealing with employment, families, friends, physicians and the MonSter in general. I feel like I finally see some of my own experiences in black and white. No, it isn't all filled with continual roses, but rather it shows the ups and the downs that are a given with a long term, continually changing disability. I thank the author for being so frank and hope that others with MS can now know they are not alone and those without MS can can now understand a little about our lives.

Format: Paperback
Beware of this review since I have been friends with the author of WOMEN LIVING WITH MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS for over thirty-five years. Even so, believe me when I say this volume is engaging, enraging, frank, well-written, humorous, and a must for any person with multiple sclerosis or for any person close to such an individual. I think that upon reading this book, a person with MS would experience an emotional release through hearing from those who UNDERSTAND. It will encourage a person to find support and show it is possible to be supported and to live well with MS.
The book flows smoothly even with the numerous transitions required to share the views of the many MSer's represented by Ms. Nichols. The multiple (no pun) contributors format could have been one of the book's weaknesses, but turned out to be a strength.
Whether or not you have multiple sclerosis or another chronic disease, reading this book will make you wonder at the flexibility and resiliency of the human spirit--all twenty of them.

Format: Paperback
What a WONDERFUL book! Judy has done a marvellous job of telling 20 different women's stories -- their varying symptoms, their joys and challenges, their abilities to laugh at life's ups and downs. The "Froup" should be very proud of their "sisterhood." I was so impressed with the book that I'm ordering 4 more for family and friends who would enjoy reading it. I will also send messages to the 4 MS Society chapters I've worked with and encourage them to keep several copies on their shelves. I highly recommend this book to EVERY woman diagnosed with MS, whether recently diagnosed or an "oldtimer." I also recommend it to spouses or significant others, and families and friends of MSers. It's VERY easy to understand and makes for delightful reading.

This book is amazing. It is a book that every woman living with MS should have in their home library. I didn't want the book to end. I will probably refer to it over and over in the future. It has already helped me with some current struggles I'm going through. Thank you so much Judy Nichols and the members of the "Froup".
