Multiple Sclerosis, an Enigma was the first volume of the story of my unexpected diagnosis of RRMS (relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis) and the nightly injections that contributed to the end of my career. Told in first person point of view, the stories quickly engaged readers who had experienced their own unexpected disappointments in life.
Multiple Sclerosis, Melanoma and More is part 2 of that story. When, in the first book, I stopped the prescribed treatment after taking early retirement, or what we might call "medical retirement," things began to improve in my health and so in my outlook on life. But within a year, it was suggested that I see a dermatologist, and malignant melanoma was diagnosed. The fears and self-doubt and depression returned with a vengeance. But the strength that I had found with my husband's help was again there to be found. Readers of the first book wanted to know more about our life and our goal of reaching "happily ever after." This book follows me through another year of medical misunderstandings, misperceptions, and mishaps. It will not be the final word ... there will be more ahead.
