Interwoven with the facts concerning the management of this disease, it shares the ups and downs with a portrait of a ``day in the life'' of someone special. Covers all aspects of this illness from the initial diagnosis, through the ``it's not fair'' syndrome to the eventual acceptance and reality of actually living and mastering, to the best of one's ability, a disease that at the present has no known cure. Among the topics covered are nutrition, exercise and attitude; doctors, medications, and therapies; family members including spouses and children; support groups and future possibilities.
