Présentation de l'éditeur

When 44 year-old Ann Pietrangelo is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, all previous assumptions about health, work, and her new romance are up for grabs.

How do you plan for life's second half with a body you've never met before? One precarious step at a time. From the impersonal diagnosis by email to a wedding presided over by a funeral director, this is no tragic tale of woe. Like relapsing/remitting MS itself, the book alternates between the serious (“When I turn toward him, there's a big hole where his right cheek should be.”) and the silly (“The bocce balls don't get out much.”).

This poignant and often humorous story of acceptance and change relies on a basic truth – good health and life are fleeting, but love and humor trump all. Every second matters, a point driven home by yet another life-altering diagnosis.

Biographie de l'auteur

Ann Pietrangelo is the author of "No More Secs! Living, Laughing & Loving Despite Multiple Sclerosis." Her follow-up memoir, "Catch That Look: Living, Laughing & Loving Despite Triple-Negative Breast Cancer" is scheduled for publication in early winter, 2013. Making peace with multiple sclerosis, surviving triple-negative breast cancer, and continuing to pursue a career as a freelance writer...well, let's just say she's fairly stubborn and has a well-developed sense of humor. She is a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors and her work is published on sites all around the web. Ann and her husband, Jim, are partners in WebCamp One, LLC, a full-service website development and content creation company. Their philosophy is a simple one: Give back when you can and LIVE while you're here.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Person with MS is Much More than her Disease 2 juillet 2011
Par Bonnie Brody - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Ann Pietrangelo has written a poignant, intelligent and very readable book about her struggles with relapsing/remitting Multiple Sclerosis. As she says , "MS puts me in a category of people who live a double life. One foot in the world of disability, one foot in the world of the able-bodied". With this form of MS she deals with remissions and relapses over and over, never knowing when one or the other will occur.

Ms. Pietrangelo discusses her life, her work, her family and her marriage. She focuses on the fact that she is much more than the sum of her symptoms or the name of her disease. She is a whole person, in love and loved, productive and successful. She has a history of writing for health blogs and she and her husband run a web design company.

Ann's Diagnosis occurred when she was 45 years old, beginning with tingling in her leg and arm. She is lucky to have health care insurance but it is running out as she is on the COBRA plan - the plan that is mandatory for companies to offer employees who leave employment. It is a plan they must pay for themselves and it only lasts for eighteen months. Ann discusses the frustrations of working with insurance companies and physicians along with her fear of what will happen when she is left uninsured.

She discusses the emotions that go along with her illness, especially "the mind games it plays with you. Guilt and self-doubt plague its unwilling hosts, and I'm no exception." Even though she is debilitated by her disease, she continues to feel she should do more, work more hours and be more productive. She finds it hard to accept her limitations with MS. "The thing about relapsing/remitting MS is that your disabilities are ever-changing. You have to learn to adapt to new situations very quickly. Change is the name of the game." She is faced with myriad symptoms, never the same and always in flux and change.

I am very glad that I had a chance to read this e-book that was provided by the author. Ann is an excellent writer. The book is never whiny or martyr-like. It is a day to day account of a brave woman and the world she lives in. This book gave me a way to open a door and get to know her a bit. For that I am grateful.

Ann writes about the experience of having MS with humor, reality, and love. Her book shows her navigating a relationship (with her body and her husband) with respect and a no nonsense view of the MS world.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 SO much better than I expected! 14 décembre 2012
Par smcrae - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is a must read for anyone diagnosed with MS, or any family member or friend of someone with MS. As I was reading it, I kept thinking, "yep I've felt that way too". It's a funny, down to earth, honest take on what it's like to have MS. Some days are really good and some days are really bad. Her story gives me hope to maintain a normal life despite MS. Thanks Ann for such a great read-I really needed it!

Everyone who has had a disease of some sort to contend with in life should take the time to read this book. Even if you haven't, you need to read it to get a clue as to how spouses really need to dedicate their lives to each other - even in sickness! I'm proud of Ann Pietrangelo as she lets us into her life on a personal level. Even in tough times of life, we should focus on helping others - that's what Ann does! And, yes, I love the cover of the book and the title. You have to read it to learn where the "secs" comes from.

Ann Pietrangelo has done an exceptional job describing her struggles with Multiple Sclerosis. The book should be
read by all medical professionals and patients dealing with life changing medical conditions. I was very moved
by her book and have encouraged all of my co-workers to read it.

Its an all-over heaviness that makes it difficult to move; its a fogginess that drapes itself over you and prevents you from functioning normally; its a complete and total inability to fight sleep. It is debilitating and often the most troubling symptom of MS. &quote;
