The balance of the book provides concrete and easily applied strategies for managing the challenges. These strategies are neither cures nor treatments, but ways to compensate.
Strategies are outlined for specific problems—for example, forgetting what you went to the grocery store to buy. The authors work through several options, identifying different solutions that might work for different people.
The book also includes a series of vignettes about people with MS in situations made difficult by cognitive issues. These vignettes not only provide solutions that real people have found successful, but also highlight the emotional and social havoc cognitive changes in MS can cause.
