Format: Paperback
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.

Dr. Mollette shares his experiences, after his wife was diagnosed with MS, with clarity and refreshing honesty. He gives down-to-earth advice for care givers in an open and compassionate manner.
This book is a must read for care givers and disability advocates alike. It will shed light on the every day realities for people who suffer from an illness/disability and those who love & care for them.

This is a nonfiction story about a minister's walk through a dark valley in his life and how it affected and changed his life. How he drew closer to God, reframed sorrow into hope and how all the misgivings of having someone in your life with a chronic illness can alter and change your perspectives. I would consider this a must read for anyone going into compassionate care or pallative care such as Hospice. The authors becomes transparent and human letting you know what it is like to walk the life of a pastor in terrible times.
