Life Continues – Facing the Challenges of MS, Menopause, and Midlife with Hope, Courage and Humor
A moving, witty memoir chronicling nearly 20 years in the life of a woman from St. Thomas who moved from the frozen tundra to the Midwest to attend college and learned she had multiple sclerosis.
In a format mimicking the unpredictable course of MS, the now middle-aged and married Ambrosio's narrative of compelling and humorous personal essays and poems recounts how she deals with the arrival of "Duct Tape Days," walking like Frankenstein, menopausal moments, and other physical and emotional challenges.
Ambrosio uses laughter to cope with the uncertainty of what lies ahead. She has an uncanny ability to focus on what she can do instead of dwelling on the mounting 'cannot's.
