Half of the MS population will likely encounter varying degrees of cognitive difficulties; newer studies point to a percentage of 65%. Mental Sharpening Stones: Manage the Cognitive Challenges of Multiple Sclerosis provides real-life techniques garnered from MS patients and their medical providers, sharing their practical methods for pushing back against the disruptive and potentially disabling cognitive symptoms that affect MS patients. The book offers strategies that will assist those living with MS to retain their intellectual faculties through sharpening their mental discipline.
This book is a vital step beyond acknowledging cognitive symptoms and the revealing changes that can affect those living with MS. It will also inform those who know them physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. The contributing writers of this book serve as exemplars and guides of how to live with and function - despite MS cognitive challenges.
