Inspirational New Guide Counsels Couples Coping with the Stress of Chronic Illness
HOLLISTON, MASSACHUSETTS-Life Interrupted-It’s Not All About Me by Multiple Sclerosis sufferer Chris M. Tatevosian guides patients and caregivers with the awareness, knowledge and understanding they need to deal more positively with the emotional and physical stresses put on a relationship interrupted by illness or disability.
Chronic illness doesn’t just cripple the mind and body; it can cripple even the strongest relationship. People dealing with MS or any chronic illness need coping skills. Now, Chris M. Tatevosian, a sufferer of the chronic disease Multiple Sclerosis, chronicles his own struggles and shows viewers how he learned to cope with the disease and with the subsequent breakup of his marriage.
Chris M. Tatevosian humbly writes from his heart to encourage not only those struggling with MS,but with any chronic illness, that there is life with this disease, BUT he writes to encourage everyone to let go of the 'poor me attitude' syndrome that we all take on with any life challenges. He claims that this PMA (poor me attitude) syndrome is more dehabilitating than the chronic illness or disability itself.
Tatevosian shares his experiences in his life and marriage, and how his PMA broke him and his relationship with his wife down bit by bit. He does this to encourage the reader to learn from his mistakes...to take a different path whether the reader has MS or not. In reading his book, you can clearly see he deeply desires his readers, to count thier blessings daily. He encourages us all to remember those around us ... those who support us. He wants us to not only love them daily but remember not to take them for granted through our PMA. Chris' testimony and story encourages readers to take life one step at a time, with humor, grace, and patience for all around them.
Whether you're saddled with disease or circumstance, we're all subject to feel sorry for the lot life has dealt us. This book is a wonderfully written reminder to make sure to count our blessings and be aware of those we love around us. To not only be aware of their needs, but tell them every day how much you love and appreciate them.
The book is available at any bookstore nationwide or can be ordered through the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com, amazon.com or target.com. An audio version of the book also is available from the publisher..
