This is an honest and touching account of what it is like to be a caregiver. The author is the spouse of a patient with advanced Multiple Sclerosis. One day this diagnosis given to his wife not only changed her life, but also changed his life. The author talks about how to care for the disabled in most every way imaginable, from eating and sleeping, to talking and sharing intimacy. As the story in the book evolved, so did the story of his wife. He speaks honestly about his feelings about her illness and about his love for her. This book is not only informative but it is helpful to those who have disabled loved ones and who are caring for them. The name Silent Struggler denotes that the struggle is not only one of the patient's...but it is also the caregiver who struggles with increased responsibility and loss.
