9780929765433: The Other Victim: How Caregivers Survive a Loved One's Chronic Illness

There is no preparation for being a caregiver to a chronically ill loved one. When a loved one is sick, the entire family is affected. Relationships are strained; togetherness is tested. Life changes dramatically and irreparably. This book is a collection of poignant, brutally frank stories of nine Multiple Sclerosis caregivers and their love and survival techniques. Although specific to MS victims, these stories mirror the lives of others involved with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other brain disorders and a variety of chronic illnesses.

Review:

Recommend to my readers who are caregivers of chronically ill and permanently disabled spouses...Reading the true life stories...is like attending a support group meeting. -- Diane Rodecker, Newspaper Columnist, The Orange County Register, The Challenger column.
