  Not worth the read , 01/10/2018
Reviewer: Reader
This book was ordered in error, but for the $4.93 it cost me, it was not worth the return shipment. I elected to spend a couple of hours reading it and found it to be a complete waste of my time. This is a self-published book, meaning the author paid to have it published rather than the publishing company paying her. The reader is led to believe that the purpose of this book is to enlighten them with the trials and tribulations of having MS while dealing with other problems in her life. This couldn't be farther from the truth in my opinion. What the author basically conveyed was that she was an admitted promiscuous thief who supplied drugs to her husband that would ultimately contribute to his death. Additionally she goes on, ad nauseum, about people doing her wrong. This is a central theme of the book where after awhile you start to think that she is the one alienating these people. She seems to be the type of person that lights a bunch of fires and then wonders why she keeps getting burned. There are a few inconsistancies in this "book". For example the author writes in one part where her house is a complete and utter mess because she has had a few bad days or weeks. A few pages later she writes that she is a compulsive house cleaner when she is under stress. This leads one to believe that she is writing what sounds good to her rather than the truth. I was in awe about what the author was willing to put out in front of the world to see. Whether it be the drug statements to the "skid-marked" underwear of hers that she discussed. I can just imagine the permanent damage she has caused herself and her daughter with her family. Apparently she has no shame or class. MS is definately a bad hand to be dealt, but many, many other people have been dealt way worse. Most people just deal with it and go on with their lives. In my opinion, the author has a "poor me" attitude which is just really depressing to read about. The book isn't worth it.
